California New Year Eve EDM Festival Expands Countdown to Florida

California New Year Eve EDM Festival Expands Countdown to Florida

Since Orlando’s reign in the 1990s as the home of ingenuity, EDM has had a strong hold on Central Florida. Diplo, a former Orlando resident, is still a household name on the area’s marquee, and the Electric Daisy Carnival has long since jumped from desert to swamp. Now another EDM festival is expanding in the area, with Insomniac bringing the New Year’s Eve Countdown Festival to Sunshine Grove near Lake Okeechobee.

Countdown Campout will take the twice-run festival in California and turn it into an overnight event. As you might have guessed, the space-themed bash will let the revelers out.

Festival organizers shared a statement: “Unique to Countdown Campout, which debuted at Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida, festival-goers will be able to sleep under the stars for an out-of-this-world camping experience.”

Not much is known about the festival beyond its history, the weekend before New Year’s Eve. More information should be available on their website in the coming months.
