With Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival getting close, many are unsure of what to expect since it is the inaugural year of this festival.  After exploring the festival’s website, I’m able to compile somewhat of an idea of what to expect with this festival.  If you have not already, be sure to purchase your tickets by clicking HERE.

According to the official webpage, there will be different areas throughout the festival grounds.  There will be Chobeewobee Village, Yogachobee, Aquachobee Beach, Jungle 51, PoWoW, along with some other locations as well.

ChobeeWobeeVillageText_WEB-300x300Chobeewobee Village is sponsored by Kulturhaus. This area is meant to feed the soul, inspire your inner creativity, bring a sense of community and awaken your inner festival weird.  It’s pretty much a festival within a festival. Chobeewobee is meant to be a collection of different communities coming together to create a neighborhood to nourish the mind, body, and spirit. During the daytime you will be able to find yoga and workshops, live artist sessions creating beautiful pieces of artwork right in front of you and late-night shenanigans that will be sure to entertain you and create lasting memories. As mentioned by the Official Okeechobee Music & Art Festival Social Media, this area will be open during the extended fourth day of the festival.

There will also be a plethora of some of the tastiest vendors featuring local delicacies, organic choices, and comfort food serving trucks, that will be carefully selected for your culinary enjoyment. As your soul is seeking enlightenment, so should your taste buds.

Based off of this information alone, I’m very excited to see what this festival brings to the table. Apart from their descriptions of each location within the festival, the pictures of each of the locations is beautiful.  The scenery is breathtaking. I know I’m definitely ready to #Entertheportal into OMF16, are you?

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.
