John Summit + Seth Troxler Headline Costa Rican EDM Festival

From January 4-8, in Playa Lagarto, the seventh iteration of Costa Rica’s Ocaso Festival will take place in the country’s Pacific-facing Guanacaste region. 

On Tuesday (9.19,) the music event confirmed phase one of its lineup starring tech house phenom John Summit, underground leader Seth Troxler and techno force Sama’ Abdulhadi.

In addition to the headliners, the underground house and techno focused festival will also host a collection of other internationally known dance/electronic artists including 8Kays, Adam Ten, Brina Knauss, Cassian, Deer Jade, Hannah Wants, Hunter/Game, Julya Karma, Konstantin Sibold, Mano Le Tough, Mind Against, Mita Gami, Tini Gessler, Tony Y Not and Zombies In Miami. 

Prior Ocaso festivals have featured the likes of Solomun, Dixon, Âme, Michael Bibi, Maceo Plex, Adriatique, Jamie Jones, Bob Moses and Damian Lazarus.

Offering overnight camping and beachside glamping options as well as hotel rooms, the Costa Rican festival will shift locations in 2024 to The Bohemian Lagarto, a 200-acre beachfront ranch with shuttle service available from the regional airport to the festival.

The environmentally-focused event is plastic free and hosts beach cleanup events during the festival. Playa Lagarto is also located some two hours from Santa Rosa National Park, where attendees can explore tropical forests, surfing, bird watching and more. 

Over the years, Costa Rica has become a relative hotspot for New Year’s-adjacent electronic music festivals, with Envision and BPM also happening in the country each January.

The phase two of the Ocaso Festival will be released in the coming months and tickets for Ocaso 2024 are now available.
