It’s been a long year, and we are all long overdue for that inimitable Okeechobee magic. On March 5th, 2023, the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival’s portal opens again in Sunshine Grove with four days of dancing, music, art installations, and all-around great vibes. I know I can’t be the only one excited to dance and feel that funky euphoric magic that is Okeechobee once again. This year’s lineup (see below) features some of the biggest names in almost every genre. They’ve come a long way since 2016.
With this year’s huge headliners, such as Earth Wind and Fire, Excision, Turnstile, and Baby Keem to artists like JPEGmafia, Hippo Campus , and Inner Wave Okeechobee, has stayed true to its eclectic lineup and drawing in a diverse crowd. We even welcome our very own local indie artists like ROHNA and Flipturn.
With the classic six stages – Be, Here, Now, Aquachobee, and Incendia, over 100 artists and Multiple art and wellness installations scattered across the sunshine grove, it’s no surprise this year is expected to bring in tens of thousands of people from all over the globe. Just a few more months before we enter the portal and feel the warm embrace of the Florida sun and the elevating feeling of the OMF atmosphere. See you in the portal.
