While the summer of 2017 is still in full swing, the summer of 2018 is building hype among festival patrons as early as possible. Perhaps a sign of the market tightening before the widely discussed “festival bubble” pops, these early releases of information and tickets are a win for those wanting to plan ahead and perhaps even save some cash on next year’s adventures.
Recently announced, Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival in Florida will take place March 1st through 4th in Sunshine Grove. Going into 2018 for its third installment, Okeechobee has promised OkeeOGs (2016 ticket buyers) and OkeeHomies (2017 ticket buyers) special loyalty presales beginning Monday, July 17th at 10 AM and noon EST, respectively. Regular early bird presale for all other patrons will begin Tuesday, July 18th at noon EST.
