One month ahead of this year's Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival, organizers have just announced their lineup for the festival's annual PoWoW, a star-studded jam session tradition since the festival's inaugural weekend in 2016.

This year's session will be led by Snoop Dogg in collaboration with the Roots, Chaka Khan, and Joey Bada$$. Big Gigantic saxophonist Dominic Lalli, multi-instrumentalist Trombone Shorty, and Cory Henry will also join the set, which festival organizers say will span the genres of funk, hip-hop, and soul. With what is perhaps the best Okeechobee festival lineup to date, expect even more surprise guests to drop in on the session unannounced.

Past Okeechobee Music Festival PoWoW veterans include Miguel, Solange, Win Butler of Arcade Fire, John Oates, and Kamasi Washington. Relive some of last year's PoWoW below and make sure to snag some tickets to the festival here while you still can.

Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival. Thursday, March 1, through Sunday, March 4, at Sunshine Grove, 12517 NE 91st Ave., Okeechobee. Tickets cost $289 to $1,116 via okeechobeefest.com.
