I am excited to announce that a brand new music festival will be coming to the East Coast, more specifically Florida! This brand new festival is named Okeechobee Music and Art Festival, and will be held in a similar style to Bonnaroo or Coachella. Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival 2016 will be taking place at Sunshine Grove, Florida on March 4-6, 2016. To make things more interesting, there will also be camping available at the festival, which is located at the very edge of Southern Florida. Even the teaser trailer about Sunshine Grove gets me even more ecstatic about the venue.

I don’t know about you but I’m excited to see what this new festival brings to the table. More so what the vibe will be like. Will it be similar to Swuanee Hulaween or will it be similar to Mysterland or TomorrowWorld. Only time will tell.

After serving in the military for eight years and attending Florida International University in Miami, I attended my first EDM concert in 2012. The DJ I saw was Kaskade and I fell in love with the scene immediately. Since joining the EDM community in 2012, I have been to several different music festivals which include: Ultra Miami, EDC Las Vegas, EDC Orlando, TomorrowWorld, Mysteryland, Electric Forest and many others. I have also been to several shows but prefer music festivals overall. Some of my favorite DJs include: Deadmau5, Kaskade, Rabbit in the Moon, and many others. EDM has always had a place in my heart and it actually came into my life when I really needed it, you could say it saved my life.
