    Okeechobee To Take Hiatus In 2024 To Return To Their Diverse, Multi-Genre Roots

    Florida music festival Okeechobee will take a break in 2024 as a “fallow year” intending to return to its roots and bring it back with more diverse lineups.

    The news was broken by The Festive Owl who claims the break is happening in an effort to return the festival to its original, multi-genre core.

    Okeechobee first began in 2016 with varied names like Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, Robert Plant, Mac Miller, and more. Now the camping festival draws in over 30,000 attendees to the 600-acre Sunshine Grove property in Florida each year.

    Soundslinger, the founding company behind Okeechobee who partnered with Insomniac Events in 2019, does intend to keep Okeechobee active in the community as it considers the region and their attendees essential to the long-standing event.

    Okeechobee donates $2 of every ticket sold to select local nonprofits and has donated $475,000 so far.

    Soundslinger Founder Rechulski (aka Julio Mario Santo Domingo III) said about the break, “As owners and safekeepers of our beautiful land, Sunshine Grove, Soundslinger cares deeply about the community that it witnessed come together in those first few years of OMF from 2016 onwards. We are working hard to keep OMF close to its original roots in a big way and reignite the sparks. Those formative years were special to all of us. Hang tight and remember to always Be, Here, Now.”
