The fourteenth concert of 2018 #Kelsi100Concerts
100 concerts in one year...the challenge is on! If you have no idea WTF I'm talking about, click here for the full scoop. Okeechobee Music & Art Festival was definitely one for the books. There is nothing in Florida like it. Over 100 artist come out to perform for over 30,000 people on 600 acres in the middle of the woods. Oh, and the best part...the music goes on 24/7. Before we started our first adventure, we set up camp. Shout out to my festival buddies for the weekend Hippie Rob, Curtis & Dom. Tons and tons of people also camped & it was a sweet little community. We made friends with all of our neighbors & ended up meeting people from Ohio, Michigan, Georgia & all over Florida
When we finished setting up our campsite we headed out to the main stages. I have seen Slightly Stoopid a bunch of times and was super excited that they were the first band I caught.
After catching some of Slightly Stoopid's set, I headed backstage to do an interview with Khalid before he hit the stage.
We talked about staying true to yourself, the songs that inspired him to get into music & the first thing he does when he gets off stage. Click below to listen to the interview
Once my interview was wrapped up, we headed back into the crowd for Khalid. This was my first time seeing him and I'm truly impressed. His positive energy is contagious and I'm totally digging that karate kick that he randomly throws out
The best part about Okeechobee Music Fest is how close the stages are. While, I was waiting for Halsey, I headed over to another stage to see this guy Tipper. I only stayed a little bit because you know I had to go see my girl Halsey!
The main stages shut down around 2 in the morning, so we went on a late night adventure and stumbled on some really strange middle of the night activities. I present to you the rooster seesaw...
We thought that was super weird until we stumbled upon the Jive Joint next to the Lost Tea Village. Prepare yourself...things are about to get weird
Check back and stalk this blog for a year of music and good stories. Remember, I have to average about 2-3 shows a week. Well, until next concert.....
