From the vibrant heart of Costa Rica, the echoes of the 90s are set to return. The iconic Finca Fest, which once defined the nation’s rock scene, is poised for a grand comeback. With the harmonious efforts of the original “Four Farmers”, the musical spirit of Costa Rica is ready to flourish once more.
Revival of a Legacy: Finca Fest Edition Five
Mark your calendars for September 2nd! This year, the festival not only revives its roots in ska, rock, and reggae but also introduces the rich beats of creole music. In a heartening display of national pride, every artist in the line-up boasts music crafted within the beautiful boundaries of Costa Rica.
Stellar Line-up with the Founding Icons
Naturally, the spotlight remains on Mentados, Los Garbanzos, El Guato, and República Fortuna – the foundational four groups who crafted the festival’s legacy. Their iconic status is undeniable, having been the festival’s pillars from its inception. Complementing their legendary status, artists like Mod-Ska, UFO & Amigos, Scooter 79, Santo Remedio, Sócial, Mechas, Seka (Esteban y Joako), and the duo Carolina and Charlie Shuffle will grace the stage, amplifying the event’s eclectic vibe.
Dance Rhythms with Esteemed DJs
For those with a penchant for dance and electronica, renowned DJs such as The Aces Sound System, The Sound Syndicate, Six, and Marcus Selecta will ensure the night remains alive with rhythmic beats and electrifying energy.
Two Venues, One Unforgettable Experience
To accommodate the sheer wealth of talent, the festival has expanded across two venues: Pepper and Peppers Chill Out. Starting from 2 pm, music enthusiasts can revel in non-stop melodies. Tickets, priced at a modest ¢14,000, are available at www.latiqueteracr.com.
The Masterminds Behind the Magic
A commendable collaboration between Costa Rock, House of Artists, Jaika Productions, and Tour Manager ensures that this year’s Finca Fest surpasses all expectations.
