With the portal gates finally opening, ElectroJams wanted to share some last-minute reminders for those of you attending the annual Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival (OMF). Above all, though, remember to have the time of your life and stay hydrated!
Full Moon Party
On Thursday night, there will be a freestyle full moon party hosted on water’s edge. No phones, no lights, no video—just a gathering set out to connect all its participants with nature via disconnect and a lifeline of warm downtempo sounds.
The PoWoW! is a massive, once-in-a-lifetime, collaboration between artists where anything can happen. Like what, you might ask? Like incredible rap legends like Snoop Dogg and The Roots as well as newer faces like Lil’ Dicky making an appearance! This event gathers incredible artists and musicians together in order to remind us what we can’t be allowed to forget, the greatness of music.
The Big Quiet
The Big Quiet is an experience which seeks to create the largest, musically-guided meditation gathering to help others understand not just the power of music, but the power of rumination. Perhaps the most definitive qualities of The Big Quiet are the event’s reach and acceptance of those with little to no experience in meditation, as well as its mission to marry the people with the beauty of human creativity and innovation by bringing them to renowned landmarks such as the World Trade Center or Madison Square Garden.
