In addition to its stellar phase 1 lineup names, the festival looks forward to welcoming 50+ phase 2 acts to round out the celebration.

Following their successful debut during the inaugural edition of BPM Canada in 2022, Neverdogs’ Bamboleo, Yaya’s Tamango, and Carlo Lio and Nathan Barato’s Rawthentic will be teaming up for a collective showcase that is set to give guests a taste of what each label has to offer.
Fast-rising Miami-based experiential event concept Hurry Up Slowly and Toronto-based venue Soluna, both of which also made their BPM debut in Toronto, will be presenting their respective BPM Costa Rica showcases for the very first time. Additionally, the 5-day festival will feature a selection of special showcases that are slated to make their BPM debut, including From The South, a curated takeover from Manchester outfit Mason Collective’s MVSON, and Qlub.
