Ocaso

The inaugural Ocaso Festival took place in Tamarindo, Guanacaste, in January 2017. Since then, we have held five Guanacaste editions with an average annual attendance of over 7,000 people and more than 500 DJs scheduled.

Ocaso Festival has supported the development of the regional electronic scene more than any other festival, with over 50% of the festival’s bookings designated for central American artists.

This one’s setting, in the stunning country of Costa Rica, is motivation enough to visit on its own. To really give them a chance to shine in front of a loyal audience, it also offers one stage and one performer at a time. Watch for this year’s headlining announcements soon.
