The Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival has announced their 2017 dates and will make limited pre-sale passes available this week.

The four-day fest, which takes place in Sunshine Grove, will happen on March 2-5, and fans can secure tickets starting Wednesday, August 17 at 11 a.m. EDT.

Last year's event sold out thanks to a decision by organizers to limit capacity and ensure ticket buyers had a good experience. CL has reached out to see if that will again be the case in 2017.

A press release says the fest will "evolve beyond last year's in terms of scope and creativity, continuing the tradition of excellence, while adding new and exciting elements to the music lineup and activity features."

"There were so many once-in-a-lifetime moments at Okeechobee '16. In 2017, we're going to build upon the magic we created last year by adding new, next level surprises," Chief Creative Officer and co-Founder Paul Peck said.  "Those special, shared experiences that will never happen again is what Okeechobee is all about."

Four-day GA & VIP passes go on sale tomorrow and will cost you $229.50-$599. More information is available at okeechobeefest.com or on CL's events page. Watch a recap video from last year below.
