You might remember people talking about this festival, Okeechobee, last year and wondering what the heck people were even saying?! The epic event, named after the Floridian city in which it takes place, is back again for its second year and they’ve just announced their lineup. Trust us when we say, “Okeechobee” is going to be your new favorite word.
Taking place basically inside a Florida jungle from March 2-5, the four-day festival doesn’t only come with headlining sets by Kings of Leon, Usher & The Roots (yes, you read that right), and Bassnectar, it also comes with “wild art,” yoga, swimming, dancing, and DJ sets by Nightmares on Wax, Rob Garza, and Escort (see the full lineup below, but just know, more artists will be announced in the coming weeks).
Let’s get this straight, Usher performing with The Roots? Swimming and dancing? Sounds pretty ideal to us.
Lucky for everyone, a limited quantity of early bird tickets are already on sale. Scoop yours up here.
As if you needed more of a reason to head to Sunshine Grove (not an amazing level of Wave Race on N64, rather, the site of the festival grounds IRL), they’re also offering various VIP packages including a Super VIP Luxury Tour Bus package called “The Grand Kachobe.”
Wondering what went down last year? Check out the recap video below, and read more about their 2016 PoWoW! —a Mashup Collaboration with Special Guests here. This year’s PoWoW! guests are a mystery for now, but last year’s featured Win Butler (Arcade Fire), Miguel, John Oates (Hall and Otes), Mumford & Sons, Skrillex, Mac Miller, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and more.
We’ll see you there.
