Once again Okeechobee will host PoWow!, a mashup collaboration featuring special guests that will be announced closer to the start of the festival. Another intriguing performance comes from Blind Boys Of Alabama and Allen Stone, who will team with additional performers for a set dubbed “Okeechobee Gospel Soul Experience.” Kevin Collinsworth of Okeechobee organizers Soundslinger said, “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. Can’t wait to open the doors on March 2nd!” In addition to the music, festivalgoers can expect diverse food, wild art, yoga and healing workshops, swimming and dancing.
