Last year, during the first few days of the month of March, history was made within the Florida music festival circuit. A truly pivotal moment indeed was the inaugural Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival, a highly-anticipated and infectious gathering that attracted roughly 35,000 patrons to the heart of Florida, a staggering amount for a first-time gig. This comes as no surprise when you take into account the masterminds behind the magic, Soundslinger LLC, the company partially responsible for curating massive events such as Bonnaroo year after year.
The OMF crew has surely been turning and burning since the conclusion of last year’s success, and they’ve just affirmed the dates for this year’s shenanigans – for those of us who long for our new home-away-from-home after last year, it is a beautiful feeling to know that Okee will be held once again among the lush lands of Sunshine Grove, March 2-5 2017.
We are ecstatic to invite you to the second annual Okeechobee Music & Arts Fest from March 2nd-5th, 2017 at beautiful Sunshine Grove in Florida. The experience we all shared at Okeechobee ‘16 was transformative and we can’t wait to take it even further this year with you. Continuing in the OMF tradition, we’ll share amazing music and art in a pristine natural environment with a vibrant community of friends and explorers.
Ticket presales for Okeechobee are on sale tomorrow morning, August 17th, at 11 AM EST time, and we suggest that you are on your A game with timing, because odds are this first batch will be gone before you know it. There is a payment plan option available, meaning you could have your ticket secured for $0 down.
