The four-day festival is hosted by Soundslinger LLC and is held on a 600-acre property in Central Florida.

Last year was my first time attending to Okeechobee. I had heard so much about the first edition and how great its production and the vibes were, I just needed to check it out. Okeechobee 2017 ended up being one of the best festivals I have experienced to date. The array of music and art was one of the best I have ever seen, there was a bit of music for any mood that I was in. The stages had a Bonnarooesque vibe to them with their names and styles, which left me in a constant state of nostalgia. The food vendors were a delight inside the fest, with so many different vendors catering to anyone’s food palate.

What stood out most at Okeechobee though was it was my first big festival that I got to shoot photos for. It was a surreal experience for me and first affirmation I had in my photography career. Those 600 acres had so much inspiration in them, I met some of the coolest people, shot some of my favorite photos to date and heard some of the coolest acts I have ever wiggled my body too.

Christopher, or Brown Bear as his Festival Family and most of his friends call him, got his humble beginnings in the dance music scene when he was a child from none other than his mother. The weekends were filled with dance music from the 80’s and 90’s like La Bouche’s “Be My Lover” and Corona’s “Rhythm of the Night”. In 2010 his friends showed him a video from Bonnaroo of Pretty Light’s “I Know the Truth” and he immediately dived on in. Since then he has attended every live music festival from Spirit of Suwannee’s, Purple Hatters Ball (Jam Bands), to Let It Roll Drum & Bass Festival in the Czech Republic. Chris has an eclectic palate for music; from Shpongle and Bassnectar to Oliver Heldens and Porter Robinson, he vibes with it all. He has traveled from coast to coast and around the world looking what he calls The Bear Necessities of Life; the simple things that make you smile, or you find visually moving. This pursuit and travels inspired Bearlosophy, his photographic journal of all his adventures. He aspires to travel the world taking photos for non-profit organizations or to work for one of the top EDM photography teams like aLIVE Coverage.
