The aliens have colonized. Jungle51 returns. A nightly dusk-till-dawn electronic experience, set apart from the main stage area in a lush and tropical enclave, Jungle 51 became a highlight for music fans who attended the inaugural edition of the festival last year. As the sun sets each day of Okeechobee Fest, the jungle begins to rustle and comes alive. Festival goers will unite under the light of the moon to take in some of the world’s top names in underground techno and house. This years Jungle51 will feature an alien takeover creeping upon the outer edges of a cityscape, with a light show that will transport festival goers to another dimension, far beyond the human reality.
Listen to the Okeechobee Jungle 51 playlist on SoundCloud.
The Jungle 51 stage will feature three nights of otherworldly beats during Okeechobee 2017. Firehouse’s label head Kim Ann Foxman headlines Friday night with pulsating coolness, supported by Wolfram (Vienna’s current Mozart of Synthesis), and UmFang, a FACT magazine “Top 10 Artists To Watch”. On Saturday evening Berlin’s DVS1 and Ryan Elliott (Berghain and Panorama Bar residents respectively), headline, keeping people moving into the wee hours of the morning. Then on Sunday Detroit’s Omar S along with Nightmares On Wax and Sebastian Mullaert AKA Minilogue will close out the festival with an array of funk, groove, and cinematic energy.
Once again, Jungle 51 has been carefully curated by Sheik N’ Beik, a music/lifestyle collective that has produced some of New York City’s most talked about underground techno events. Jungle 51 is booked with a raw approach to the curation process, selecting artists who excel within their genre and will allow the audience to transcend every day reality within this one of a kind setting. Jungle 51 will be an all night cosmic rebirth. With a light show and thematic design that will transport everyone far away from planet earth into unexplored inter-galactic worlds.
