Ocaso Festival stands out as a socially conscious, eco-friendly gathering for music, nature, and culture enthusiasts. It’s certainly and essentially a sanctuary for your soul, a venue to enrich your life, and a perfect opportunity to relish in a paradise-like setting accompanied by an immaculate soundtrack. I assure you that this hypnotizing rendezvous will captivate all your senses with majestic sunsets, awe-inspiring jungle landscapes, and especially the rhythmic solace of dancing under a sun-kissed sky. Set on a 200-acre beachfront ranch with a cutting-edge, state of the art Funktion One sound system, the festival offers overnight camping and luxurious beachside accommodations. The venue is located just 24 miles south of Tamarindo and 18 miles north of Nosara. Shuttle buses from both locations and the local airport ensure convenient access to this wondrous experience.

Guanacaste is the province where the festival will be taking place, it is located in the northwestern region of Costa Rica, renowned for its beaches and biodiverse parklands. It features the Santa Rosa National Park. Here, you can explore rare dry tropical forests, surf, stroll along endless beaches, swim in calm waters, partake in diving trips, and as if that wasn’t enough, you could even take up a variety of super exciting water sports.

The festival extends beyond its main event, hosting pre- and post-parties that maximize the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets which I know we all love, which ensures a continuous musical journey amid the diverse ambiance and cultural experience. Something I love about Ocaso is how committed they are towards environmental responsibility. Ocaso Festival proudly maintains a plastic-free ethos, organizing beach cleanups in collaboration with Tamarindo Clean Wave. This collective, united by a shared commitment to a clean and healthy environment, focuses on beach cleanups, social projects, and ground-breaking initiatives to transform Tamarindo into a zero-waste community.

Something new, and super-exciting is that this year, the festival provides an enhanced backstage experience on top of an excellent culinary and beverage service. This fresh take will certainly make their seventh edition the most exceptional one to date. Festival-goers can anticipate five days of non-stop performances featuring international DJs and local favorites, with plenty of opportunities for dancing, fostering positive community vibes, and connecting with the region’s vibrant wildlife. Ocaso Festival’s history boasts legendary sets from artists like Solomun, Dixon, Âme, Michael Bibi, Maceo Plex, Adriatique, Jamie Jones, Bob Moses, Damian Lazarus, and Guy Gerber.

The clock is ticking for this organically immersive and unforgettable escape.
