The festival which is headlined by Slightly Stoopid, the Reggae Rock group from Ocean Beach/San Diego and Thievery Corporation returns to the resort city March 9-12, 2017.

Featuring four days of continuous music and activities, this year’s line-up also includes Stick Figure, Twiddle, Fortunate Youth, Hirie, Mike Love, Rob Garza (DJ set,) Congo Sanchez, Organically Good Trio, Sonombulo, Santos Y Zurdo. Matt Carey, and Selecta Coco.  The lineup has been rounded out with the recent additions of Ryan Montbleau solo and with Hayley Jane, Roots of Creation, Talawa. FEATherWOLF, Matos, Selecta Coco. Docta Rhythm Selecta and Cypher One.

Located next to the Best Western on Jaco Beach, the new Jungle Jam Festival Grounds will offer ample space for fans and performers alike. The festival will also include artists, artisan food vendors, fire dancers and more. The festival grounds will also include a secure VIP Camping area. Other VIP accommodations and camping facilities are just a short walk away.

“We’re very excited to bring Jungle Jam to the beach and downtown Jaco,” said festival producer Eric Freitas. “Jungle Jam will still have the same high quality production values. We’ll have more room and we will be in the heart of Jaco. The new grounds will be much easier for people to enjoy everything that Jaco offers.”

Music will fill Jaco beginning Thursday March 9 with an intimate artist showcase and traditional Costa Rican barbeque for VIP ticket holders. Main-stage performances run Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Each day at Jungle Jam starts with live music yoga on the beach.  Then, attendees are encouraged to engage in one of the spectacular eco tours, sport adventures and excursions available, from zip line adventures across the rain forest to boat cruises to see crocodiles.  Attendees can take surfing lessons or a trip to Manuel Antonio National Park. There is simply no better way to experience Costa Rica up close, often with the festival performers right next to you.
