“With PoWoW!, we’re cooking up an historic concert, the kind where you don’t know who is going to walk out on stage or what will happen next,” says Peck. “Miguel is a supreme talent and we’re working closely with him to defy and exceed all expectations. The idea is to create a show that we personally want to experience together with fans at Okeechobee. We’re going to invite fans to submit their ideas for PoWow! to us on Facebook and Twitter, and if we use an idea, we’re going to hook up those fans in a cool way.”
Past SuperJams produced by Peck include SuperJam with Skrillex and Friends, Rock & Soul SuperJam with Jim James, Brittany Howard, John Oates, R. Kelly and Billy Idol, the hip-hop SuperJam with RZA, Solange, Schoolboy Q and DJ Jazzy Jeff, Also Derek Trucks SuperJam with Chaka Khan and D’Angelo SuperJam with Questlove.
The Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival is slated for March 4th – 6th, 2016, on an 800 acre site in the Northeast part of the county.
