Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival Taking Hiatus In 2019
Organizers of the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival announced the event will not take place in 2019. Team Okeechobee are aiming to revive the festival in March 2020.
The first Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival was held in 2016 at a farm in Okeechobee, Florida and returned to Sunshine Grove in 2017 and 2018. “For the past three years, we have witnessed 100,000 strangers from all walks of life, come together to our home of Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida, to live, laugh, listen, sing, dance, learn, create, meditate, downward dog, eat & drink, explore, give back, embrace and live OMF’s mantra to Be, Here, Now. Now that’s love,” reads a portion of a note posted on the festival’s website. “While the OMF portal won’t be opening in 2019, we’re looking to March 2020, and we can’t wait to see you again. Thank you for your love, support and understanding.”
Mumford & Sons, Robert Plant, Ween, STS9, Flaming Lips, The Roots, Kings Of Leon, The Lumineers, TAUK, Bassnectar, THe Roots, Pretty Lights and The Revivalists are just a few of the acts who performed at past Okeechobee installments. Check out the full letter from the festival’s organizers:
