Jacó will get a truism boost in January with Jungle Jam IV. Organizers said that 2,000 persons showed up last year, and they expect even more this year.
The event is from Jan. 16 to 19, and a four-day pass is $149.
Organizers said Tuesday that these groups have agreed to participation: G. Love and Friends, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Dumpstaphunk, Max Creek, The Expendables, Nicki Bluhm And The Gramblers, Oteil Burbridge, Zach Deputy, Ryan Montbleau Band, Kung Fu and dopapod. Another headliner is Slightly Stoopid.
Said the festival organizers:
“The one-of-a-kind music and camping festival in Jacó, Costa Rica, is hosted by the beautiful DoceLunas Resort Hotel and includes concerts at multiple locations in the area, including beachfront venues, late night clubs and local theaters, all designed to create an up-close and personal concert experience. It is not unusual for bands to play multiple days at Jungle Jam. Nor is it unusual for sets to turn into big jam sessions.”
“This year’s line-up represents a mix of genres and styles that fit in perfect harmony with the culture, surroundings and the vibe of Costa Rica. Roots Reggae, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, Fusion, Americana, Jam and Electronic it’s all here,” aid Eric Freitas, event producer for Jungle Jam IV.
Organizers have set up a campground for visitors, but they also promote a string of local hotels.
Most Jungle Jam IV performances will take place during the evenings allowing attendees the opportunity to take advantage of all that Costa Rica has to offer from zip line adventures across the rain forest, boat cruises to see crocodiles, surfing lessons, day trips to Manuel Antonio National Park and much more, said organizers. The event has set up this Web site.
