Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival reveals the star-studded lineup for its annual PoWoW!, a once-in-a-lifetime superstar collaboration that brings top artists together for an ultimate jam session. Snoop Dogg, the leader of the evening, will be performing with an array of special guests that will span the genres of hip-hop, funk and soul. Philadelphia hip-hop legends and Tonight Show band, The Roots, will be joining the bill along with the Queen of Funk, Chaka Khan. Rounding out the megawatt lineup will be rap’s breakout star Joey Bada$$, Big Gigantic’s saxophonist Dominic Lalli, the exceptionally talented New Orleans’ multi-instrumentalist Trombone Shorty, and jazz great Cory Henry, will all be performing together. In true OMF fashion, additional surprise guests will be sure to make an appearance on stage at the signature PoWoW! event.
The Okeechobee PoWoW! has become one of the most exciting nights of music, creating one of a kind moments like last year’s collaboration with Solange, Michael McDonald, Gallant, Griz & others where they reimagined McDonald and Kenny Loggins hit “What A Fool Believes” and more. At OMF’s inaugural weekend in 2016, Miguel and Win Butler of Arcade Fire, along with John Oates (of Hall & Oates), Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Kamasi Washington created their own versions of David Bowie’s “Fame” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling”.

As Okeechobee Fest enters its third year on the heels of two sold out festivals, it has quickly grown to be the largest independent festival in the Southeast and the first major destination of the festival season. By blending the world-class lineups and amenities of mainstream events with the sensibility and community-oriented approach of independent festivals, OMF is designing the festival of the future.
Located in the heart of Florida, sitting between Miami, Tampa and Orlando, Sunshine Grove spans across 800-acres of pristine grasslands, clear lakes, and exotic tropical woodlands. The diverse, multi-genre festival celebrates the start of Spring with both world renowned and on the rise performers, art installations, yoga, meditation, local culinary treats and more.
In addition to The Grove – the expansive tropical wooded venue for musical performances on OMF’s Be, Here, Now stages, OMF continues to set itself apart with its signature areas like Aquachobee- an all day beachside music and swimming oasis, Jungle51- an after hours techno party deep in the jungle, and ChobeeWobee Village- the cultural and artistic epicenter of the OMF experience filled with treasures and delights around each and every corner.
