Recap: A Closer Look at Okeechobee 2018

March 5, 2018admin

Okeechobee Music Festival went down this weekend and we can say, the old adage is true. Third time really is a charm. Not only was the lineup balanced in a variety of genres, but the musical power was well spread between day and night jams. There was a great mix of emerging acts, viral darlings, and veteran players we all love. Sprinkle in that trademark Okeechobee magic and you’ve got yourself another solid festival.

Once again the artisans blew it out of the water. With entry ways, stages, and installations transforming the festival grounds into an artistic wonderland–we were free to frolic. That excitement for discovery was everywhere, even in the festival lineup. Okeechobee really knows how to build on an experience every year, and this one was one of their best. We sent over some undercover cameras to capture the festival and the results are everything you need right now. Check out the full gallery here.
