The Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival will return to Okeechobee, Florida from March 2 – 5 following a successful inaugural outing in 2016. Organizers have just revealed the lineup for the PoWoW! musical collaboration that will take place at the festival on Saturday, March 4.
Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno has been tapped as musical director for this year’s PoWoW! collaboration. Kraz will be joined by Michael McDonald of Doobie Brothers/Steely Dan fame as well as R&B crooner Gallant, future funk artist GRiZ, funk outfit Vulfpeck, singer Antwaun Stanley and members of Snarky Puppy.

In addition to the music, festivalgoers can expect diverse food, wild art, yoga and healing workshops, swimming and dancing. HeadCount has partnered with the festival to organize Participation Row at the event, which will feature nearly a dozen local nonprofits. Organizers Soundslinger have invested in new art, amenities and infrastructure for the second installment of Okeechobee. The company aims to do “everything possible to respect and cherish the natural beauty” of the 600-acre Sunshine Groove, where the event is held, by utilizing as many biodegradable, repurposed, recycled and sustainable materials as possible.
