Okeechobee Music + Arts Festival set times have dropped, and the festival is coming up THIS WEEKEND! Taking over the Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida, Okeechobee Music + Arts Festival is back for another great event.
If you’re looking through the schedule and wanting a few new names to check out, be sure to “heart” these artists and add them to your list to not miss at this year’s Okeechobee Festival.
Playing Sunday night, Bia’s infectious (and viral!) hits will take to Sunshine Grove at the NOW stage. The Platinum-recording artist is a rap femme fatale, blowing up after her hit single in 2020 “WHOLE LOTTA MONEY” dropped during the pandemic. Listen to her album For Certain below.
Black Carl! [saturday]
One of our “20 Artists to Watch in 2022,” Black Carl! takes over the firey Incendia stage on Saturday night at 1am. Starting the year on a high note, Black Carl! began 2021 with his Mixed Signals EP which was all the gas he needed for an explosive year. Making up the other half of Integrate alongside VCTRE, another name who made it on our list of artists to watch this year, Black Carl! is due for a banner year with plenty of shows and most likely, more hard-hitting music. Catch Black Carl! & VCTRE both at Okeechobee Music + Arts Festival.
There’s two opportunities for you to catch Khiva during your Okeechobee Music + Arts Festival fun. On Friday, she’ll be providing Friday funday tunes at Aquachobee at 2pm then later that night, at the Incendia stage at 11pm. Her background in music production and songwriting, Khiva’s “true love” is within “sonic sculpture and nurturing a propensity toward the emotionally fueled […] bass-driven styles” of music.
Known for having a hard-hitting discography and delivering speaker melting sets, NotLö should have no problem getting the attention to kick off your Sunday Funday at the HERE stage at 1:30pm. NotLö has enjoyed exponential growth in the last year opening up for names like GRiZ and even joining LSDREAM for select dates on the Peace, Love, and Wubz Tour.
Manic Focus [sunday]
Manic Focus is always a funky fun time, and the perfect way to conclude your Sunday at the festival. At the HERE stage at 6:55pm, Manic’s funk, soul and new era hip-hop livetronica will certainly get you up on your feet and grooving after a 4-day festival. Get to the HERE stage 2 hours prior and catch…
Following right before Manic Focus on the HERE stage at 4:55pm, MIZE has received plenty of accolades and love from the River Beats team – most recently being named one of our “Top 10 Breakout Artists of 2021.” He’s built an incredibly dedicated fanbase through SoundCloud mixes loaded with unreleased IDs blended perfectly with timeless vocals, and a social media presence many try to emulate.
One of the best-known eastern European techno/house DJs, Nastia’s techno tunes will fill Jungle 51 with “melancholic, minimal stripped down ghetto funk and sustained house” from 5pm – 8pm.
Ross from Friends [friday]
Playing on the “HERE” stage, Ross from Friends is not actually Ross from “Friends.” Felix Clary Weatherall, better known by his stage name Ross from Friends, is a British electronic record producer and DJ signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. Catch him on the Here stage on Friday night at 8:05pm.
Make your way to Jungle 51, the techno jungle at Okeechobee, after your Saturday night festivities for Volvox at 4am for a sunrise dance party. A dominant force on the Brooklyn underground scene, Volvox is known for tough, stripped-back techno and groovy, acid-flavored sets.
