Jungle Jam, the music festival that returns to Jacó this weekend, has nearly doubled its pre-sale ticket numbers from a year ago. Celebrating its fourth year with a star-heavy lineup, including Slightly Stoopid, Don Carlos, and G. Love & Friends, the most recent edition of this beachside festival is generating much attention.
Eric Freitas, the festival producer, also said he expects more tickets to be sold at the door than last year.
Docelunas Resort, which can accommodate about 2,000 people, again plays host to the camping festival, allowing concert goers up-close access to the waves as well as nearby clubs. Tickets are listed at $149 for a standard four-day pass and $299 for a six-day camping and festival pass. The campground will open today, and music begins roaring over the sands on Thursday and will last until Sunday night.
Jungle Jam is becoming well-known for its acts playing impromptu jam sessions and on multiple nights. Late night sets begin at 2 a.m. and don’t end until the sun rises. During the day, patrons are encouraged to tour Jacó and neighboring attractions to experiencing the country’s more unique aspects, like surfing or zip-lining. For those who prefer not to rough it on the campgrounds, local hotel packages are still available.
