Dome Music Festival returns to Uvita
From the print edition
The Dome Drive Thru Restaurant in Uvita on the southern Pacific coast will host the second annual Dome Music Festival on April 28.
Last year, the one-day festival took place in June and celebrated the grand reopening of the Dome Drive Thru. It proved a local success, and owners Mike Allen and Brent Thomas agreed that Uvita needed a yearly dose of the best music around.
Best Time Ever Productions has brought national and international talent to this year’s Dome Music Festival. DJ Philippe Chapuy has a large local following and will unite drum and bass with house and dance music to liven up the crowd. Ojo de Buey from San José will headline the event, drawing people with their smooth Latin reggae fusion and sending out positive dance vibes to listeners.
Also in attendance will be Jami Sun from the U.S. state of South Carolina. She’s an original rock-n-roller and a master on the guitar. Polishing off the line up is The Ben Fagan Trio, also from South Carolina. The trio has become well known in the Costa Ballena area and will bring a danceable island funk flavor to the festival. Jami Sun and The Ben Fagan Trio will be touring together after the festival; their next stop is the Jazz Café in Escazú.
Admission to The Dome Music Festival is ₡5,000 ($10) per person. Drink and food tickets will be available for purchase at the gate. The Dome Drive Thru Restaurant is located in the center of Uvita, along the Costañera Highway. Arrive early to enjoy the 5-7 p.m. happy hour featuring the opening musical performances and drink specials.
