Okeechobee Music Fest schedule, set times released: When to see Mumford and Sons, Kendrick Lamar and more
Fans have been chomping at the bit for a schedule and set times for the inaugural Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival, March 3-6 in Okeechobee County. And with less than a month until the festival, it's all finally here.
After a buildup of an opening day on Thursday, March 3, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, Daryl Hall and John Oates and Bassnectar will hold down the main stage on Friday. On Saturday, the big names are Skrillex, Kendrick Lamar and Miguel, who will also host his star-studded "PoWoW!" jam session with Win Butler and others that night. And on Sunday, it's Mumford and Sons, the Avett Brothers and Ween.
The music on the three main stages starts at around noon each day, and stretches until well after midnight. But DJs and other live performers will be spinning literally around the clock on four side stages.
