We all know Florida has a big dance music scene, and an even bigger festival scene. This comes naturally, due to the year round good weather and sunshine. While Florida is already home to Ultra, EDC Orlando, and Sunset Music Festival, it doesn’t yet have a high profile multi-genre festival. All of that is about to change as Superfly, the creators of festivals like Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, have set their sites on Florida’s center for a new festival.
In a small country town known as Okeechobee, Superfly is creating the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival on 848 acres of property formerly known as Sundance Trails. Property owner Clifford Rosen hopes that Okeechobee will gain its spot on the map much like Coachella in California. The festival will feature more than 80 artists, bands, and DJs on 5 stages over 3 days during March 4-7, 2016. Additionally, the festival will feature camping, dusk-til-dawn electronic music stages, and once-in-a-lifetime collaborations much like Bonnnaroo’s SuperJam. Expect headliner announcements in mid-October spanning the genres of classic rock, indie, alternative, and folk and will be similar to Coachella or Bonnaroo. Check out the teaser video below and you better start learning how to spell Okeechobee now, because you’ll be hearing about it a lot more in the future.
