The founding organizers may have split with the brand, but any fans who wondered if Okeechobee Festival could possibly pull off another amazing event without them can have some piece of mind. If there's anything to disappoint fiercely loyal fans, it certainly won't be the lineup.
Kings of Leon, Usher and The Roots, Bassnectar, The Lumineers, Flume live, Wiz Khalifa, Pretty Lights, and more stack the top of the Okeechobee 2017 lineup set for March 2-5. Dance acts include Porter Robinson live, Griz, Snails, The Knocks live, Tennyson, and Nightmares on Wax. The festival remains as diverse as ever with Rae Sremmurd, Mike Posner, Sleigh Bells, Anderson. Paak and the Nationals, BadBadNotGood, and really, you'll just have to read the full list below.
Back again are the beloved Pow Wows, where different musicians from different genres come together in one superband to play covers of crowd favorites across styles and eras. Last year stunned with Pow Wow performances from Arcade Fire's Win Butler, Miguel, Hall and Oats' John Oats, Mumford and Sons, Skrillex, Mac Miller, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Yeah, that happened, and it was glorious.
Fans who came out to the Festival's debut in March of 2016 left feeling an immediate kinship with the brand. It remains to be seen if that special atmopshere can be recreated, but if the music has anything to do with, thing are looking pretty damn sunny.
