Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival makes its debut in Okeechobee, Florida in just over three weeks. Camping begins at noon on Thursday March 3rd and ends at noon on Monday March 7th, with headlining artists playing from Friday to Sunday night. The festival is compared to other festivals like Bonnaroo and Coachella for its diverse range of musical acts, art, and other attractions. For its inaugural year, Okeechobee will featured the likes of Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, Odesza, Bassnectar, Mac Miller, Big Grams (Big Boi & Phantogram), Big Gigantic, RL Grime, Kill the Noise, Bonobo, Shpongle, Gramatik, and many more.
The festival looks like it should be a unique experience offering a variety of sights and sounds that will appeal to a range of music enthusiasts. The festival has broken down its layout into different themed areas, which include ChobeeWobee Village, Yogachobee, Aquachobee, Jungle 51, and PowWow. Perhaps one of the more anticipated themed areas is Aquachobee, Okeechobee’s very own beach, complete with its own bar and waterside stage playing music from 9AM to 9PM.
Ok, so not sure what you heard but there will a BEACH and it will be BIG & it will be BEAUTIFUL! There will also be LIVE MUSIC by the water all day and you can swim n splash around with your friends (fun splashing not mean splashing please) while watching a band or DJ crush a show like never before. We're still setting it up but here's what it looks like now and as you can see it's coming along nicely. The stage will be over to the right. Music at Aquachobee will start at 9am every day of the Fest. There's never been a festival like this and it will be the #ultimatespringbreak in March 2016! Meet me here for breakfast on Sunday and we'll have an organic juice together, recover and reflect… I'll be the guy covered in spf 150 😎🏊🏻🎷🌞🍍 #Aquachobee #OkeechobeeFest @skrillex @bassnectar @robertplantofficial @mumfordandsons
