Okeechobee Fest

Making its debut this spring is the Okeechobee Music Festival. The four day festival is set to run from March 3-6 at Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida. With a diverse and expansive lineup, four stages, and other attractions, Okeechobee is on track for an impressive first year.

 

 

The range of music at Okeechobee covers a wide range of sounds. Bassnectar, Odesza, Skrillex, and Big Gigantic all have headlining sets; hybrid acts Lotus, Dr. Dog, and Big Grams (a collaboration between Phantogram and Big Boi) are performing as well. Additional artists include Kill the Noise, RL Grime, Gramatik, Bonobo, and Shpongle.

 

 

In addition to the music lineup, Okeechobee features other attractions, like the Chobeewobee Village, which hosts live painting, yoga workshops, and late night activities. Attendees can also enjoy sets by the water in the Aquachobee beach area. Late night techno sets will be hosted at the Jungle 51 stage and run all night long. One of the most interesting features of the festival will be the Powow Show, featuring a superstar collaboration from Miguel and Win Butler of Arcade Fire, John Oats from Hall & Oats, and many others.

Steve's obsession with music began when he was 16; he saw his then-favorite band, Metallica, play the TD Garden in Boston. His musical tastes have broadened since then, but he is still chasing that feeling of excitement & unity he felt at his first show. His introduction to the dance music came when friends brought him to a Bassnectar show, and he hasn't looked back since. When Steve heard MASS EDMC were looking for writers, he jumped at the chance to get more involved. Writing for MASS EDMC has given Steve a rare opportunity to combine two of his passions: writing & live music.
