Ocaso and his vision of underground music.
Ocaso has become one of the world’s most beloved underground events thanks to word of mouth from those who were lucky enough to have attended this idyllic festival. It brings together a world-class mix of DJs, friendly locals and music fans from all over the world, all in a heavenly setting. With an emphasis on intimate dance experiences, Ocaso is celebrated for its special sunrise and sunset sessions, beachside settings, in a beautiful jungle amphitheater surrounded by flora and fauna. lush, poolside gatherings and for the unique energy of the whole event. The natural beauty of Costa Rica is always a stunning backdrop and an immersive setting for this most natural and elusive adventure.
Ocaso does not support or believe in exclusion of any kind. This is not what we think of the underground and it does not respect the roots of this movement. Ocaso does not have a VIP area, does not have a VIP pass, does not have bottle service, or anything that cannot be enjoyed by each participant. We believe that we are all the same and that no wall should be placed between us. – the festival team

On our last show, Maceo Plex came back and performed with Doc Martin for one of our iconic sunrise sessions until nearly 9am. There were still 4000 people dancing when they finished. Magdalena also had an incredible extended set on Sunday, playing over four hours and it was one of the best sets that no one has ever witnessed. There will be even more magic in the air for this special event in 2022, so we hope you can join the family. – director of the Devin Ellis festival

In a country that aims to be carbon neutral by the end of 2021, Ocaso is a “leave no trace” event. Every year, festival goers clean Tamarindo Beach before and after the festival, and we are always looking for ways to reduce our festival’s carbon footprint. Everyone is aware of the conservation of water, wildlife and the waste they generate in Costa Rica. These are crucial questions for Costa Ricans and everyone involved with Ocaso.
Besides music, festival-goers can sign up to see some of Costa Rica’s natural wonders with a group of other people, as well as take part in various group outings during the festival.
