"Third times a charm" is a saying that holds a significant amount of truth for this surreal gathering of music, culture and connection, which is made obvious by the super-stacked lineup and recent announcement of sound improvements for stages.
ATTENTION OKEECHOBEINGS – if you have been sleeping on tickets for the third year of the endless magic that is Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival – tis’ the time to get “woke”. Taking place March 1-4 of 2018, Okee returns to Sunshine Grove in the very heart of the Sunshine State, Okeechobee, FL. “Third times a charm” is a saying that holds a significant amount of truth for this surreal gathering of music, culture and connection, which is made obvious by the super-stacked lineup and recent announcement of sound improvements for stages.
As seen on the OMF website:
“The Beach Stage & The Now Stage are the two stages that will experience the biggest sound improvements but the audio upgrade will be felt across each and every stage at OMF18. Our production team from 2016 is back and ready to make this the biggest & best year yet!
The upgrade will include:
– Reorienting the stages within the Grove
– Upgrading the PA systems on both the NOW and HERE stages (to d&b)
– Upgraded PAs in Aquachobee
– Flying the PAs on towers at Aquachobee
Cheers to the biggest, baddest, loudest OMF yet!”
Also noted on the official site is the announcement of Destination Okeechobee, a series of shows in Miami, Orlando, Gainesville, and Tallahassee where local up-and-coming bands battle it out for a chance to share the bill with the world-renowned artists of Okee 2018.
“Participants in the battle have earned a slot by beating out 3,200+ artists across the country in Round 1 of the competition. Winners of Round 2 will be determined by audience voting and you must be in attendance in order to vote!”
