March Festival Preview 2017

Last month we gave you an inside look at the most intriguing festival lineups of February in locations around the world from Tucson to Thailand. The festival calendar for the month of March revolves around the 10 day extravaganza that is SXSW but thats just one of the fantastic events that the XLIVE team is excited about as we bring you a few of our favorite festivals taking place during the third month of 2017. 

Okeechobee Music  Arts Festival - March 2-5 - Okeechobee, FL

If there was a Rookie of the Year award for festivals, you would be hard pressed to find a first year festival that was more successful last year than Okeechobee with sold out crowds making their way to one of the most scenic festival properties in America. The sophomore edition of Okeechobee features a headline performance from Usher backed by The Roots, EDM luminary Bassnectar and roots-rock favorite Sturgill Simpson just to name a few. 

McDowell Mountain Music Festival - March 3-5 - Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix is one of the more underrated festival markets in the country and the non-profit McDowell Mountain Music Festival is quickly becoming one of the premier live music experiences in the Valley of the Sun. Were fired up for a lineup including The Shins, Flume, Chromeo, Grouplove and a rare festival appearance from jam bad legends Govt Mule. 

Treefort Music Fest - March 22-26 - Boise, Idaho

Their presence on our XLIVE Advisory Board is far from the only reason why you need to make a trip to Boise after SXSW this year. Treefort is one of the few places in America where you can learn how to code, enjoy some of the Pacific Northwests tastiest brews, take a yoga class and enjoy tunes from indie staples like Mac Demarco, Alvvays, Deafheaven, STRFKR and Lizzo all in one city center.

Colombia has quietly emerged as one of the hottest vacation destinations in the world and Estereo Picnic is the perfect time to visit the vibrant capital city of Bogota.
