Okeechobee, Florida (November 28, 2017): Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival (OMF) is back! OMF is thrilled to announce 2018’s initial lineup, featuring headliners Arcade Fire, Bassnectar (playing 2 sets), Halsey and Travis Scott. The four day music, arts, wellness and camping experience will once again take over Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida from Thursday, March 1st through Sunday, March 4th.
As OMF enters its third year on the heels of two sold out festivals, OMF has quickly grown to be the largest independent festival in the Southeast and the first major destination of the festival season. By blending the world-class lineups and amenities of mainstream events with the sensibility and community-oriented approach of independent festivals, OMF is designing the festival of the future.
Located in the heart of Florida, sitting between Miami, Tampa and Orlando, Sunshine Grove spans across 800-acres of pristine grasslands, clear lakes, and exotic tropical woodlands. The diverse, multi-genre festival celebrates the start of Spring with both world renowned and on the rise performers, art installations, yoga, meditation, local culinary treats and more.
In addition to The Grove – the expansive tropical wooded venue for musical performances on OMF’s Be, Here, Now stages, OMF continues to set itself apart with its signature areas like Aquachobee- an all day beachside music and swimming oasis, Jungle51- an after hours techno party deep in the jungle, and ChobeeWobee Village- the cultural and artistic epicenter of the OMF experience filled with treasures and delights around each and every corner.
Festival passes are available now at www.okeechobeefest.com/tickets. General admission tickets start at $269 (plus taxes and fees) with an option to purchase cost saving bundles.
