There's only one thing that would bring Mumford Sons, Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, and Bassnectar to a small Florida town that doesn't even have a starbucks: a music festival. Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival kicks off this Friday, which means you're running down to the wire if you're still coordinating your first festival outfit of the year.
Since this is the camping music fest's first year, we don't have much to go on in terms of what to wear. That's why we've taken the liberty of pulling our favorite looks from some of last year's national festivals like Coachella, Governor's Ball, and SXSW, and two smaller local ones like Miami's III Points and Brooklyn's Full Moon Fest.
A Few Tips
It's camping, so keep it comfy and spruce up your look with accessories like sun protecting hats and plenty of stacked bracelets, rings, and necklaces. Remember folks– it may be winter, but this is still Florida. Pack light clothing, bring a light sweater just in case, and make you sure you have on a durable pair of sneakers or boots to conquer this vast musical land.
In case of rain, bring a waterproof coat and boots. Bring a bathing suit in case you want to participate in water activities at Aquachobee and yoga gear (and a mat!) in case you want to get your Shavasana on in the AM at Yogachobee. Oh, and sunscreen. Don't forget the sunscreen! Here's a breakdown of all the areas you can explore at the fest.
