Okeechobee Music Festival, Florida’s latest music festival endeavor, have announced their initial 2017 lineup, returning to Okeechobee, FL for the second straight year. The four day music festival will take place March 2-5 at Sunshine Grove and features 80+ musical acts across 5 stages.
Last month it was revealed that festival founders Paul Peck and Steve Sybesma from Soundslinger, LLC would no longer be associated with the festival citing “philosophical differences”. However the festival plans to build upon the success of their inaugural year under current CEO Kevin Collinsworth. “We are excited to build upon the success of OMF 16. This year’s lineup is great and we have more surprises to come. We are opening up more of our amazing property for people to explore, and continuing to invest in art and the overall festival experience” said Collinsworth.
Kings of Leon, Usher & The Roots, Bassnectar, Flume, and The Lumineers top the first wave lineup announcements. Other exciting artists on the 2017 lineup include Wiz Khalifa, Pretty Lights, Solange, Rae Sremmurd, Young The Giant, Porter Robinson (LIVE), Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, GRiZ, Cold War Kids, Blood Orange, D.R.A.M., Bleachers, SOJA, The Revivalists, Snails, Mac Demarco, Sleigh Bells, Snakehips, Louis The Child, The Growlers, Moon Taxi, Joey Purp, BADBADNOTGOOD, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, and the return of PoWow!, a mashup collaboration with special guests to be revealed in the near future.
