Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival Announces Initial Lineup


As we reported, the inaugural Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival will take place March 4 – 6 just outside of Florida’s Lake Okeechobee and is said to be “Florida’s largest camping festival.” This morning festival organizers have announced the first wave of artists set to play the first-ever Okeechobee Fest in March.

Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar and Skrillex are a top Okeechobee’s first wave artist lineup. The extremely diverse lineup also includes Grace Potter, Jason Isbell, Big Gigantic, Portugal. The Man, Dr. Dog, Lotus, Deer Tick, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and more than 40 other acts such as The Soul Rebels, The London Souls and Moon Hooch. One of the more intriguing listings on the lineup, especially considering Okeechobee is put together by the creative team behind Bonnaroo’s SuperJam, is “PoWow! A Superstar Mashup With Special Guests.” Additional major artists will be announced in the coming weeks. All told, the festival is expected to host a total of 80 bands within the hip-hop, indie rock, electronic, folk, modern and classic rock genres.

Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival will be held at Florida’s Sunshine Grove, a site that features over 800 acres of pristine grasslands, clear lakes, and exotic tropical woodlands. In addition to the music, festival attractions are expected to include a white-sand lakeside-swimming beach and bar, wooded VIP camping areas, an assortment of immersive art installations and a wide array of locally sourced treats from some of Florida’s most popular food trucks, craft beer makers and artisanal purveyors. The festival will be presented by Soundslinger, LLC, a team of concert promoters and producers with credits that include helping to launch and promote Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and China’s STORM Electronic Music Festival.

3-Day GA passes are currently on sale via Okeechobeefest.com. These passes include parking, tent camping and access to all three days of the festival. Extensive VIP options are also available. Check out the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival entry in the JamBase Festival Guide.
