If there hasn’t been enough evidence yet from third parties that Okeechobee 2019 isn’t meant to be, then this will be the proverbial nail in the coffin. Okeechobee released a statement this morning confirming that the festival will not go forward as planned in 2019.
“For the past three years, we have witnessed 100,000 strangers, from all walks of life come together to our home of Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida, to live, laugh, listen, sing, dance, learn, create, meditate, downward dog, eat & drink, explore, give back, embrace, and live OMF’s mantra to Be, Here, Now. Now that’s love. […] While the OMF portal won’t be opening in 2019, we’re looking to March 2020, and we can’t wait to see you again. Thank you for your love, support and understanding.”
Okeechobee 2018 featured headlining performances by Arcade Fire, Bassnectar, Halsey, Travis Scott, and Snoop Dogg.
