Imagine a world where being yourself is not only embraced, but encouraged; a world so colorful and bright that you cannot help but smile. Imagine a world where everyone is not only friendly, but where everyone is best friends.
What if I told you this world exists?
Taking place the first weekend of March, centered in the middle of the sunshine state, Okeechobee Music Festival creates a magical world; a place where absolutely anybody can gather to bond over their love of live music, inspired art, camping, yoga, dancing and positive energy.
Picture this: close to 10 stages built carefully around a hidden jungle, a sunny beach, a lively forest, and even a stage made of fire; each one continuously playing music from artists ranging from the rock band Arcade Fire to reggae supergroup Slightly Stoopid to dubstep legend Bassnectar… there is always something for everyone!
er their love of live music, inspired art, camping, yoga, dancing and positive energy.
We’ll be returning for the third yearto Florida’s favorite music festival, to camp with the festival-goers, take some action-packed photos, and interview some of the biggest names in modern music. The Local Natives will be there to give a heartwarming acoustic set filled with beautiful harmonies and feel-good lyrics, while Snoop Dogg will be there to bring us back to the glory days of hip-hop/rap. Tycho, an electronic band from San Francisco, will undoubtedly play a beautiful ambient set willfully inspired by the mountains of northern California, while Tipper takes care of producing the strange sounds of experimental bass music.
To those of you who have never experienced a music festival, whether it was because you felt you wouldn’t fit in or because you simply don’t know if you’d enjoy it—here’s your chance to discover a completely new type of community, where everybody works together to create a fun, embracing, positive place where the music is plentiful and the possibilities are endless.
We hope to see you there!
