Like any new festival you gotta grab the spotlight in order for the people to rise. We’ll see how this new Florida festival fares as they look to add to next year’s festival mix and become the unofficial official start to festival season.
From the OKMAF Press Release:
Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival is centrally located at Florida’s Sunshine Grove on over 800 acres of pristine grasslands, clear lakes, and exotic tropical woodlands. Signature new venues like Aquachobee provide the perfect place to relax and hangout by the lakeside swimming beach and bar. The Lost Jungle offers and immersive dusk-til-dawn dance music experience, and an assortment of spectacular multi-media art installations will dot the landscape surrounding the wooded VIP camping areas.
Okeechobee’s multi-genre lineup is designed to appeal to a wide variety of audiences. The perfect Florida weather in March along with the timing will make the event an ideal Spring Break destination and an exciting option for music fans everywhere. When asked, festival founder & Chief Creative Officer Paul Peck said, “We want to present a more intimate experience in our first year so we are limiting the capacity to about half the size of other major American festivals…we have an incredibly special property and the opportunity to do something really special here, and we want to make sure we do it right.”
