TSIS Has A Beach Party Stage At Okeechobee Music Festival 2017 With A Sick Lineup

okee tsis

We've been talking about how excited we are for Okeechobee, one of the newest festivals to enter the American festival family, for a while now. It has a simiilar vibe to Electric Forest with its 600 acres of grasslands, clear lakes and exotic tropical woodlands. The event is decorated with impressive art installations, yoga / meditation and amazing food that's spread out between various stages -- from an all night forest to a beach stage. The lineup for 2017 looks out of control. We will be out there in full force and highly recommend you all attend as well. If that isn't enough for you, we have some even more exciting news.

TSIS will be throwing a special stage takeover at the festival's beach stage, "Aquachobee", for the first ever TSIS Beach Party!! 

It's going down on Saturday, March 4 and we have an amazing lineup in store. TSIS favorites Kasbo, Louis Futon, Whethan and Brasstracks will all be throwing exciting sets. It's going to be a party all day long happening literally feet away from the beach and water at the festival. 

Okeechobee has also revealed more additions to the lineup which include Logic, Sturgil Simpsin, 12th Planet, Pell, Vulfpeck, The Floozies, Space Jesus, Ganja White Night and a handful of others.

If you haven't made plans yet, we highly suggest doing so as this is sure to be one of the best festivals of the year. You can see more info on tickets and full lineup here. Enjoy!

Anderson .Paak Announces New Free Nationals Album In 2017

Free Nationals Album Artwork

Anderson .Paak had an insane year in 2016. He dropped one of our favorite hip-hop album of the year and cracked our top 10 a second time with his NxWorries album alongside producer powerhouse Knxwledge. Now .Paak has some more big news for us...he and his touring band / collaborators The Free Nationals have an album coming out this year.  

He took to Instagram announcing “2017 will bring a whole lot of amazing music your way. One of the projects I am most excited for is this freenationals LP tho!! #FreeNats #thefreenationals #obituaries #OBE” and shared the artwork (below) via twitter. The live performances we’ve seen from .Paak have been incredible and an LP on the way from his band is something we’re very stoked about.

He hasn’t given any details about the project but his hashtag has us thinking the project might be called Obituaries. We’ll see. Stay tuned for more info and new singles. In the meantime, check out a couple videos of .Paak and The Free Nationals live below. Moreover, they're joining Bruno Mars on his massive 24k Magic Tour. Enjoy!
