Destination Okeechobee Voting & OMF 2016 Time-lapse Recap
Not a day goes by that Okeechobeings far and wide long for their home away from home in Okeechobee, FL; where the music is seemingly ceaseless, the scenery is warm and inviting, and the “strangers” you encounter become some of your closest friends in an instant. Only 70 days or so stand between us and the second annual Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival, March 2-5 2017,and this year the 4-day music and camping extravaganza produced a phase 1 lineup featuring the likes of Kings of Leon, Bassnectar, Flume, Pretty Lights, Wiz Khalifa and more (full initial lineup here). We’re still anxiously awaiting the phase 2 artist announcement, but OMF has done a solid job distracting us with other riveting releases in the meantime, such as the announcement of Destination Okeechobee and a nostalgic video from OMF 2016.
Round 1 of Destination Okeechobee starts now!

DubEra hit the nail on the head with their time-lapse of the sights, sounds, and activities of Okeechobee 2016. A special thanks to the DubEra team for creating this video and igniting a fiery reminiscence within all of us Okeechobeings who entered the portal back in March. Music by: Odesza
