Okeechobee Festival is back and better than ever! Sunshine Grove is such a magical place filled with great music, beautiful art, and even better people. Like any camping festival, make sure to arrive prepared. Bring a tent, a canopy, plenty of sunscreen, and food. If you want to get fancy bring yourself an air mattress and even a stove to cook meals! Although the glamping (glam-camping) route is fun, I typically stick with pb&js and a thick blanket to sleep on.
During the day, the Florida sun is scorching, but at night the temperatures drop quite a bit, so make sure to bring a coat or a onesie. My favorite part about Okee was all of the late night parties and secret events I stumbled upon, including comedy acts and rap battles. Keep warm at night so you can take your time experiencing everything the festival has to offer.
The campground is a bit of a hike from the festival so be prepared to walk or bring extra cash to grab a bike! Getting back to the campsite can be just as fun as the main event if you just do a little wandering; there are tons of renegade parties going on and plenty of open minded festival-goers to become your new best friends.

As always, be safe, drink water, and look out for one another. All the love ~ Leela
I am a free spirited 22 year old massage therapist with a passion for helping others achieve health and happiness. Music fuels my soul so EDM festivals feel like a second home to me. I crave adventure and love, both of which I receive at raves. I couldn’t imagine where I would be without the rave community and I believe everyone deserves to have the beautiful people that fill music festivals in their lives!
