Bleachers never disappoints. If you ever get a chance to check them out- DO IT! They have amazing energy on stage and btw- they have a sax player… You want to see them now don’t you? We lucked out at Okeechobee because Jack Antonoff, the lead singer, said that was the last show where they’re playing a set list off their album Strange Desire before they release their new album!! When he said that you can imagine how much I embarrassed myself from my jumping around and screaming
In between sets we chatted with some listeners and found some awesome artists in action! To be honest, the people at Okeechobee are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Everyone was so welcoming and happy to be there. It just made the already amazing atmosphere even better!
And of course we can’t forget to mention another hilarious sign that we spotted
We headed back over to the Be Stage to catch The Lumineers‘ set and I was bursting with excitement. Btw, their stages were named “Be”, “Here”, and “Now” which is super smart and a convenient way to remember the stages! Ya girl (Nicole from the street team) has an awful memory so that was greatly appreciated
The Lumineers was nothing short of incredible which came as no surprise. This was my first time seeing them and i’m most definitely going to try to see them again soon. I didn’t know that they had a cello player in the band?! I couldn’t help but watch her the whole time because she was SO COOL. I want to be her when I grow up.

Next up was Kings of Leon and they BLEW US AWAY! They played a two hour set and all of our favorites were on the set list. They had a massive crowd and we were super lucky to be a part of it! We jumped around so much I’m pretty sure we burned off all the calories from the incredible food we ate the past three days…

You know sometimes when you see a band live and they sound even better than the record? Yeah, that’s how I feel about The Lumineers and Kings of Leon.
We had such an incredible time at Okeechobee this weekend and we are already missing it. This was the perfect way to kick off the festival season and we can’t wait to see what the portal has in store next year! Peep the Day 3 photos to check out even more of our experiences through our lens.
