March is approaching quickly and one thing is burning on everyones minds, festy season! This year we have already seen a good bunch of amazing festivals announced and there are still many more to come. One festival that has had my attention from the jump is a new comer to the circuit, Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival. The first two things (and arguably the most important) that caught my eye were the awesome location and the dope lineup.
The area they picked out for this one is a huge plot of land in Sunshine Grove (central Florida) that has plenty of cool spots waiting to be explored. The grounds will feature a jungle stage, a beach stage and even a chill area that will host yoga/workshops where everyone can gather to awaken their inner weird. Basically there will always be something you haven’t seen here, ensuring there is never a dull moment!
The Jungle 51 will be the spot thats popping at all hours, showcasing an interesting selection of artists that will have you getting down into the early morning. I really love what they have going on with this stage so far, for sure see myself getting stuck here for hours. Check out the playlist below to get an idea of what kind of tunes to expect from this spacey stage.
Aquachobee, the beach stage! This one has more of a laid back feel but of course because who doesn’t love those beach vibes. You can catch music here everyday from acts like Twiddle & Manic Focus, 9 am up until 9 pm. Here you will be able to swim, catch a stellar view from the oversized ferris wheel or just kick it and bask in the sounds coming from the waterside stage.
Whats most impressive to me is these guys just keep offering up more and more week after week. I hear they have another huge announcement up their sleeve coming some time real soon (¿possibly 6 god?). As if adding Mac Miller out of nowhere wasn’t already enough. Advanced ticket pricing ends in a little less than a week don’t miss your chance at being a part of the inaugural Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival!
