Back for its 2nd year, Florida's Okeechobee Festival just announced its lineup and it's a duesy. The festival goes down in the "Tropical Paradise" that is Sunshine Grove, where on one end, there's the sandy lakeside beach of Aquachobee, flanked by a ferris wheel and on the other is Jungle 51, tucked away in a forest of luminescent trees. 

The fest is headlined by Kings of Leon, an inventive mash-up of Usher with The Roots and Bassnectar. Other diverse standouts include Solange, Flume, Blood Orange, Wiz Khalifa, Pretty Lights, Mac Demarco and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals. Also of note, is the return of the PoWoW! which —much like Bonnaroo's Superjam— is a collaborative mashup featuring a variety of artists from the festival. Check out our photo recap from 2016's edition for a glimpse into the vibrant people of Okeechobee, check out the full line-up below and early bird tickets are available here , starting at $229 + fees.
