Last month, it was announced that Steve Sybesma and Paul Peck, co-founders of Soundslinger, LLC, which founded Okeechobee Festival, would be parting ways with the company. Current company CEO Kevin Collinsworth released a statement on the festival’s sophomore year, saying, “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!”
A limited number of early-bird tickets are on sale now at the festival’s website. See the full lineup below, with more artists to be added in the future.
