Ocaso Festival in Tamarindo, Costa Rica has announced the final line-up for its 2023 return.

Taking place between January 6 and January 9, the festival is known for its melodic house, techno and tech-house sound. Ocaso will bring the likes of Diynamic label boss Solomun, Swiss-duo Adriatique, Innervisions’ Dixon, Bob Moses, Doc Martin and more to the Central American Pacific Coast.

As the largest-scale event Ocaso have done, the festival will take place across three different open-air stages in the town of Tamarindo, with day and sunset parties on the beach, moving to a jungle setting at night time.

The festival has a leave-no-trace policy, and attendees take part in cleaning up the beach location both before and after the festival. Their clean up volunteer programme picks up an average of 10kg a year.

It takes place near the Las Baulas National Park, famous for its turtles, on the west coast of Costa Rica.

The festival will be the only North American shows by Solomun and Adriatique in the first two months of 2023. There will also be sets from smaller, up-and-coming artists including Zach Walker, Jon Lee, Papa Lu, Alel and Alex Orias.

Tickets start from $299 USD and accommodation of different budgets are available in Tamarindo, the nearby Gunacaste, Pinilla and Villareal. Get yours here.
