With weather conditions that make for clear and sunny skies for nearly all 365 days out of the year, Florida has become a hot bed for a myriad of different music festivals. Not every event makes it however, as for every new festival that emerges, another chooses to discontinue, leaving only the strongest to survive and enjoy furthered success. Festivals like Ultra, EDC Orlando, and Tortuga have dominated most of Florida’s music scene for the last few years, but a new festival just established its presence on the sunshine state’s map. The Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival brought in an entirely new festival experience that Florida had never seen and so desperately craved. Okeechobee’s inaugural debut has now come and gone, so let’s reflect on a few highlights from this year’s edition.
