Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival decided to extend the festival a whole extra day. So much talent to be seen, all expanded to a fourth day. It sure is set to be a great weekend for festival goers. Why the extra day? Well the extra amount of performers and the huge demand is why. They released a statement following up on it.
“Due to a wealth of talent and overwhelming excitement for the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, organizers have decided to extend the event an extra day. The festival gates will now open on Thursday March 3 at 12 noon and feature programming starting at 5pm going late into the night. Fans who arrive at noon on that Thursday can enter the gates and immediately start sunning themselves or swimming. The Aquachobee Beach stage will have music and games until sunset at which point an all-night electronic experience at the Jungle 51 Stage will begin. Fans can also enter and explore ChobeeWobee Village and have first access to artisan craft vendors, incredible art installations and intimate performances.”
The people who already had bought tickets were upgraded to a “OMG 4 Day Pass” for the extra day. This includes entry at noon on that Thursday, access to music and beach games at Aquachobee and all night music at Jungle51, preferred camping spots, and reduced entry wait times and 4 days of Music, Arts & Entertainment.
“We’ve been so blown away by the incredible response to the festival, that we thought it made sense to welcome fans in to kick off the party early,” said festival co-founder Paul Peck. “We have so many great performers coming, so we thought we’d unveil our incomparable 800 acres of pristine South Florida land and lakes early and share it with our fans and artists. We really can’t wait for everyone to see this magical place and begin experiencing Okeechobee.”
If you haven’t yet gotten your fourth day pass yet, make sure you do! You can’t say no to a 4 day camping experience. Be safe and hope to see you there!
