After weeks of anticipation, the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, now entering its third year, has announced its lineup. Headliners include Arcade Fire, Halsey, Travis Scott and Bassnectar (performing twice). The lineup goes the something-for-everyone route, mixing festival veterans like the Flaming Lips with up-and-comers like summer jam "Young Dumb & Broke" singer Khalid. Dance music and its myriad subgenres continues to dominate festival lineups with Okeechobee seeing appearances by Zeds Dead, Tipper, Big Gigantic, Gramatik, Illenium (not a Will Smith side project, BTW) and more. Orlando gets represented by everyone's favorite roving soul party, the Sh-Booms, who – in our opinion anyway – should probably bring fellow neo-soul powerhouse Leon Bridges on stage with them at some point.

The festival is scheduled for March 1-4, 2018, outside of Okeechobee, Florida. Check out the full lineup at okeechobeefest.com.
