Okeechobee’s festival site has been carefully prepared to capture the natural beauty of the sunshine state, and give the festival an intimate feeling. Building upon the epic experience that greeted patrons in its inaugural year, Soundslinger has further invested in new art, amenities and infrastructure for Okeechobee’s second annual edition. An assortment of spectacular multi-media immersive art installations dot the landscape, including unique pieces commissioned specifically for the festival with an emphasis on upcycled materials. Patrons will stumble upon large scale structures and small intimate interactive pieces as they experience the artistic heart and soul of the festival in ChobeeWobee Village, or spend time exploring the majestic Sunshine Grove through every hidden hammock, grove of palms, and secret pathway throughout the festival site. When hunger strikes after an afternoon of dancing, a wide array of locally sourced treats from some of Florida’s most popular food trucks and artisanal purveyors will be on hand to satiate the most voracious appetites and discerning palates. Meanwhile, Yogachobee offers a place for healing, exploration, and reflection on the epic musical moments and experiences, with yoga, meditation, permaculture workshops, speakers and more.
“We are excited to build upon the success of OMF 16. This year’s lineup is great and we have more surprises to come. We are opening up more of our amazing property for people to explore, and continuing to invest in art and the overall festival experience. Can’t wait to open the doors on March 2nd!”
– Kevin Collinsworth (Soundslinger CEO)
