Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival is taking place this March 4-6 with over 80 acts performing live in central Florida.

Mumford and Sons, Kendrick Lamar and Skrillex have been announced to perform in the first round of artists. In addition, the first wave features: Fetty Wap, Big Grams (featuring members from Phantogram and Big Boi from OutKast), Grace Potter, Jason Isbell, Big Gigantic, Gramatik, Lotus, Dr. Dog and several more artists from different genres of music.

The venue is located in Okeechobee, Florida, (just about an hour drive from West Palm Beach.) There is 800 acres of pristine grasslands, with clear lakes, and exotic tropical woodlands.

Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival will also feature a wide array of locally sourced dishes from some of Florida’s most popular food trucks, craft beer makers, and artisanal purveyors.

Environmental and other socially conscious campaigns will be presented, as well as yoga, meditation, and holistic workshops.

3-Day GA Passes include parking, tent camping and access to all three days of the festival.  One campsite is provided for each vehicle, and each campsite can hold up to eight people (although four to six people per site is recommended to optimize comfort).
