Okeechobee Music Festival is returning to SoFlo for its 5th edition this weekend, March 3rd through 6th. The multi-genre festival features some of the most anticipated names in live music, including both underground and mainstream acts. Festival-goers and DJs alike have quickly dubbed OMF as one of their favorite festivals in the country. This is due to the unbelievably stacked lineup and the many other opportunities and experiences beyond just the music. In a previous article, we talked about the many experiences, activities, and stages; now, we’re going to put you onto some of the must-see names at OMF 2022 this weekend.
5 Must-See Artists at Okeechobee Music Festival 2022
Be Stage: Thursday @ 11:05PM – 12:20PM
Two Feet carves a genre-fluid path of his own with an atmospheric and moody sound that borders electronic and jazz. The New York City artist’s signature sound boasts strong guitar riffs and cavernous bass grooves that, along with his soulful vocals, create a wildly contagious sound. Two Feet is most known for his hit singles “I Feel Like I’m Drowning” and “Go Fuck Yourself.” Since those early releases, Two Feet has released three well-received full-length albums.
Two Feet is my most anticipated set at Okeechobee, and luckily I won’t have to wait much longer; he takes over the Be Stage from 11:05PM to 12:20AM on Thursday.
Here Stage: Sunday @ 1:30PM – 2:15PM & 3PM – 3:30PM
One of the most exciting emerging names in bass music is Denver-based producer/DJ NotLö. Respected names in EDM, including GRiZ and CloZee, have cosigned her, solidifying her place in the electronic music landscape. I first came across the budding artist at Firefly, who wrapped up the whole festival with an intoxicating, weighty deep bass set. The RMR team then caught her at Suwannee Hulaween for a b2b set with VEIL, full of dark and distorted sounds. Now, at Okeechobee, NotLö will be taking the stage for two sets, including a b2b set with VEIL.
Catch NotLö at the Here Stage on Sunday from 1:30PM to 2:15PM, followed by VEIL from 2:15PM to 3PM. Then, catch the two of them b2b at 3PM to 3:30PM.
Now Stage: Sunday @ 3PM – 4PM
Partway through NotLö and VEIL’s b2b, I’ll be running across the festival grounds to the Now Stage for Mindchatter at 3PM. The rapidly rising artist’s name is a glimpse into the messages expressed in his lyrics, which “often address the human condition and speak to the chatter in our minds.” Mindchatter blends his generally mellow electronic sound with indie, hip-hop, and singer-songwriter elements, creating an entirely new genre of his own. Though the lyrics are simplistic in nature, the message is strong. Mindchatter’s music truly scratches a mental itch with his contagious and hypnotic cadence.
Of The Trees
Aquachobee: Friday @ 6PM – 7:30PM
After joining CloZee on the majority of her Neon Jungle Tour, as well as releasing a very well-received EP, Of The Trees had a huge 2021. His success has only continued to explode in 2022, with many festival bookings and joining REZZ on multiple stops of the Spiral Tour. The rising artist’s sound lies in the ever-growing landscape of underground bass, with influences stringing from hip-hop, ambient, and various subgenres of dance music. The Portland, Maine-raised producer/DJ, now based in Denver, has solidified himself as one of the hottest up-and-coming names in the North American underground electronic music scene.
Catch Of The Trees performing at the waterfront Aquachobee Stage on Friday from 6PM to 7PM, right as the sun sets.
Here Stage: Sunday @ 9:20PM – 10:20PM
CloZee is a renowned and constantly traveling DJ from France. The international producer inspires a sense of wonder and awe through her lucid and atmospheric electronic sounds. She pulls from her travels, mixing classical sounds with a more freeform and experimental cadence. Her genre is described as “world bass.” CloZee has performed on some of the biggest stages at festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, Hulaween, and more. She is now returning to Okeechobee this Sunday from 9:20PM to 10:20PM on the Here Stage.
