Known for its lush ecotourism, the surf town of Tamarindo is the prime location for exploring Costa Rica’s abundant nature, exemplified by its many national parks, beaches, and jungles. The tropical landscape will provide the perfect backdrop to the latest chapter in The BPM Festival’s story, and serve as a continuation of their knack for blending world-class talent with picture-perfect locations.

The BPM Festival is a must-attend event that began as a gathering of bartenders, promoters, and musicians in 2008. In a short amount of time, it’s grown to be a massive staple on the global festival calendar, with each annual edition being held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico until 2017. Celebrating its 15th year anniversary at its newest flagship event, the brand will continue the festivities throughout the remainder of 2022 with new events in various locations to be announced.
The BPM Festival invites their BPM familia to their own private jungled oasis, one which is designed for dancing across multiple stages and multiple nights, all built out of natural elements such as bamboo, wood, and foliage. All transformative experiences require careful curation to truly make an impact. Further information venues, on-site health measures, and additional lineup details are soon to follow.
