Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival
Deep in the heart of Okeechobee’s tropical setting, JUNGLE 51 returns to OMF 2018 to set night owls’ and thrill seekers’ pulses on fire. Since 2016, the mystical enclave has become a place where humans and aliens alike come to lose themselves to cosmic house and techno music, becoming completely engulfed by light and sound until the early morning hours.
Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival is proud to announce the leader of 2018’s PoWoW lineup, which delivers once-in-a-lifetime musical moments each year. This time around, Snoop Dogg is set to perform with an array of special guests that will span the genres of hip-hop, funk and soul.
Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival (OMF) is back! OMF is thrilled to announce 2018’s initial lineup, featuring headliners Arcade Fire, Bassnectar (playing 2 sets), Halsey and Travis Scott. The four day music, arts, wellness and camping experience will once again take over Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida from Thursday, March 1st through Sunday, March 4th.
The final day of the 2017 Okeechobee Music Festival dawned cool and breezy with many exhausted music fans passed out all about the festival site. But another day of fantastic music from many genres got people motivated early despite their exhaustion. Even after 4 days of non-stop partying many committed festival goers wore fresh new costumes and sported freshly made totems.
Day 3 of the Okeechobee Music Festival dawned chilly and breezy. Nonstop partying began taking its toll on festival goers and many took advantage of the cooler temperatures to get some actual sleep. But as high noon approached both Aquachobee beach and center Chobeewobee began to bustle with life again. The cool morning gave way to a sunny windblown day that created havoc in the camping areas, turning some tents into flying kites and stirring a virtual dust storm across the venues.
Just as many Okeechobee festival-goers were returning to their campsites from a long night of EDM dance trance, the sunlit campgrounds in a bright golden burst. Luckily for daytime sleepers, a front moved in quickly covering the sun with a blanket of gray. For a short time, the threatening sky looked like it might break into stormy showers, but soon the front pushed through leaving a pleasant but blustery day in its wake. As a few tents took flight and others were being nailed down by surprised campers, the windy conditions persisted.
The Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, a diverse, multi-genre event kicks off this weekend from Thursday, March 2 – Sunday, March 5, and has officially SOLD OUT of all available tickets for the second year in a row.
This year is truly a global event. Attendees will be traveling from every continent except Antarctica, 60 countries, every US State, and over 2,370 cities from around the globe.
One of the newest and unique multi-genre music festivals in the country is set to take place for the second time in natural forest wetlands just outside the rural town of Okeechobee Florida. Tens of thousands of music lovers will set up camp March 2-5, to enjoy four days of nearly non-stop music in the lush tropical setting.
