Unless you're adept at scalping tickets, you might be out of luck if you had a hankering to see the Kings of Leon, Usher, Wiz Khalifa, and other acts at this weekend's Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival.

Florida's largest camping fest has no more tickets, sponsors announced Wednesday afternoon. It is the second year in a row for the gathering that's held two hours north of Miami in Sunshine Grove.

“We are very excited," Soundslinger CEO Kevin Collinsworth says. "We look forward to a fun weekend filled with music, art, and community."

People from every continent but Antarctica have bought tickets, organizers say. About 40 percent are from out of state, hailing from 2,370 cities.
