“The ultimate goal of Bamboo Bass Festival is to bring artists from all over the world to Jaco Costa Rica,” comments Jordy Grant, Director and Founder of Bamboo. “There is a growing and thriving bass scene in Central America, and it gives electronic music enthusiasts the chance to get out of their comfort zone and experience a festival away from home, in paradise.”
However, Bamboo Bass is much more than a music festival. Following the success of 2017, event organizers have built strong roots within the community of Jaco and are involved in multiple community projects and benevolent programs, benefiting the local economy, schools and charities. 2018 is shaping up to see dynamic growth for festival attendance, with several exciting community projects announced in the coming months.
“In our third year, we’re positioning Bamboo Bass Festival to be the premiere destination festival for bass music, culture and art in Central America,” comments Grant. “We’re working with an incredible team of music industry professionals from Canada, The States and Costa Rica, and we’re excited to share year #3 with all of you.”
Bamboo Bass is a musical project designed to gather bass music culture’s most talented artists, performers, and designers to create an environment focused on unique stage designs, quality sound systems, and high calibre artistic performances. The 3-day event brings participants from around the globe to Jaco Costa Rica to join together in building an atmosphere of sharing, inclusion and celebration while revelling in world-class bass music, live painting and art exhibits, dance and flow performers in unique stage environments.
Bamboo has found a new home at the Jaco Ropes Adventure Park, accessible directly off Costanera Sur Highway 34, minutes from downtown Jaco Beach. Nestled in a canopy of ancient trees, with a path that leads participants on a 10min walk to the ocean and a popular surf break, Bamboo creates a festival experience that could only exist in the beautiful jungle of Costa Rica.
Bamboo Bass Festival is hosted February 16-18, 2018, Jaco, Costa Rica. Tickets to Bamboo Bass Festival on sale now: http://www.bamboobassfestival.com
