After a year-long break, this will be the first year of the Okeechobee music festival, organized by Insomniac Events, replacing its founder, Soundslinger LLC. In its first three years, 2016-2018, OMF attracted 100,000 people in three days to Sunshine Grove, a bucolic site near Okeechobee.
Although the new team deserves a mulligan in the first year, it should be noted that the programming of 2020 does not, in the current state of things, a great variety of music that has made the previous OMFs so popular for so large number.
Influential rappers missing (among the former OMF, including Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Future and Mac Miller), classics of rock and pop (without Robert Plant, Hall & Oates), pilots of violent demonstrations (Jason Isbell, Tom Morello), Weirdos (Ween, The Flaming Lips, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic) and women who have something urgent to say (Solange, Billie Eilish).
