What to expect at Florida’s #1 camping festival
Upon arrival at Okeechobee, one might mistakenly assume they followed Alice down the rabbit hole. From the creative art exhibits to dazzling outfits, there is something to spark the imagination. Check out Okeechobee Festival’s official 2022 announcement video to get excited for the great times ahead.
Okeechobee is a camping festival, which differs greatly from a traditional festival as there is ALWAYS something to do. Good luck getting sleep during your 4 days of jamming out and basking in the Florida rays. In the campground there are always new sights to see. Such as live DJ sets, wellness events, and friends to make. Not to mention countless activities put on by both the festival staff and the campers as well. As a seemingly random group of campers transforms into a loving, raving family, the spirit of “Okeechobeeings” is felt.
Sunshine Grove’s 800 plus acres is the perfect place for Okeechobee Festival. Originally planned as an equestrian development site, the scenery matches the vibe flawlessly. Boasting vast rolling hills, the gorgeous Lake Okeechobee, and Aquachobee Beach. In recent years, Insomniac has taken over the workings of Okeechobee Festival. LA based Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac, stated that Sunshine Grove holds a “powerful energy,” and is one of the most beautiful locations he has ever visited.
Okeechobee Festival offers way more than just music and arts. To name a few: Yogachobee, health and wellness centers, water filling stations, battery charging stations, lockers, healing sanctuary, food and other amenities.
A wide range of music genres, spread out over 7 stages
Okeechobee’s acts are spread out over 7 unique stages: Be Stage, Here Stage, Aquachobee Beach, Jungle 51, Lost in Tea, Incendia, and POWOW! Each one has its own distinctive vibe.
