Ocaso Music Festival, one of the world’s largest underground electronic music festivals, will take place in Costa Rica from January 6 through January 9, 2023!
Returning for its sixth edition, the four-day spectacle will see a mammoth line-up of artists, including Solomun, Doc Martin, Adriatique, Dixon, Michael Bibi, Bob Moses, Fideles, and a bunch of others. We look at a few things you need to know about the upcoming festival that will be held in Tamarindo, a small town on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. Get your tickets to the festival from the Ticket Fairy.
Stemming from the gorgeous beaches and jungle clearings of Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Ocaso Music Festival dubs itself as “a life-enriching, soul-enhancing escape from the every day.” Bosnian-German DJ Solomun was among the first to announce his return to the festival via Instagram. This was met with a wave of positive comments such as “The King is back to Ocaso 🙌”, “COSTA RICA IS YOUR NEW HOME 🏠. WELCOME TO THE PARADISE 🇨🇷😎”, and “Can’t wait to have you back!! 👑🇨.🇷”

Three open-air stages will be carefully constructed for the Ocaso Music Festival in 2023, allowing attendees to enjoy the music whether they’re on the beach or in the mountains. Similar to all previous year’s events, there is a 50% representation of talent from Central America. Since Ocaso Festival’s debut in Guanacaste, more than 7,000 people have attended each year, with performances from over 500 DJs.
Ocaso Festival also raises the bar in terms of environmentally friendly practices! Together with The Clean Wave Foundation, they have set up multiple beach cleaning activities in November and December 2022 in their ‘Camino A Ocaso’ or Road to Ocaso! Volunteers at these programs stand a chance to win tickets to the music festival in 2023! The next beach clean-up is scheduled for January 6 at 2 PM.
The festival kicks off on January 6 from 12 PM onwards! Shuttle bus services are available every 15 minutes and cost $2 per trip. If attendees are interested in purchasing one of the reserved tables, they can contact the organizer at [email protected]
