Okeechobee isn't really near any of the big Florida cities (150 miles from Miami and 125 miles from Orlando.) Recognizing this, however, the festival partners with the Tri Rail and other regional bus services to offer.
Where to Stay
The festival offers both on-site camping options and deals with local hotels. Those wishing to camp at Sunshine Grove must be 18 or older, or be accompanied by an adult. Car parking passes are needed for any car coming to the festival. The best deal is a portal pair pass which includes 2 festival passes and a car camping parking pass. And for those who prefer roofs and running water, the festival has partnered with Hotels for Hope to isolate affordable rooms in the greater Okeechobee area.
"Vibes" are an important part of OMF; it's why attendees are called Okeechobeings. Everyone is a human. Everything is real. And everyone has to enter what's called The Portal to reach the heart of the festival.
OMF goes hard on the vacation vibes too. You'll want a beach towel (especially if you plan on indulging at Aquachobee Beach), sunscreen, and bug spray. Come prepared!
