After much anticipation, The BPM Festival is proud to reveal its new winter home in the perfect dance music destination this January 15-19, 2020. Starting a new chapter on the Gold Coast in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, The BPM Festival looks forward to creating new memories on one of the most beautiful and modern beach destinations in Central America.
The BPM Festival
Since 2008, The BPM Festival has made its mark as a must-attend event and essential winter getaway on the global festival circuit. Originally conceived as a reprieve after the end of year NYE celebrations for the dance music industry, it returns to kickoff the new year in its new location with top DJ talent, industry professionals, and underground dance music fans from around the world.
Spanning five days and nights, attendees this coming January will have the opportunity to dance at to-be-announced venues including clubs, beaches, and jungle locations in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Located on Costa Rica’s northwestern Pacific coastline, Tamarindo is celebrated as a surfer’s paradise and for its ecotourism. Surrounded by national parks with an abundance of lush jungles and white sand beaches complemented by warm blue water and breathtaking sunsets, the surfing town and beyond offers the perfect opportunity to explore the natural beauty of Costa Rica. Easily accessible via Liberia International Airport (LIR), attendees will be able to experience a world class music festival while also chasing waterfalls, learning to surf the perfect wave, hiking nature trails, snorkeling through magnificent coral reefs, and much more.
Phase 1 Lineup
Among the first names announced for the festival’s return to its traditional post-New Year’s Eve gathering are Carl Craig, Chus + Ceballos, Hector, Luciano, Matthias Tanzmann, Nicole Moudaber, Paco Osuna, Stacey Pullen, and more. In addition to solo sets from both Dubfire and Sharam, the revered musicians will also reunite as Deep Dish as the GRAMMY-winning duo will play a rare set on the beach on opening-day at BPM for their only 2020 Costa Rican performance.
