On today’s very special episode of Songmess we are joined by Roberto Montero, director of Costa Rica’s premiere indie music festival, Epicentro. Our conversation swerves through Roberto’s long personal history with Costa Rica’s music scene, managing artists, engaging with the international music community and the birth and growth of Festival Epicentro. At Songmess we are very fond of music festivals so talking with Roberto allowed us to geek out about logistics, talent curation, environmental impact and gender parity on line-ups. Of course, Roberto also curated a fabulous playlist of boundary-pushing artists, and expresses some thoughts about what direction he’d like to see Costa Rican indie take in the future. Featured Artists: El Shirota, 424, Clubz, Raido, Ovsicori and Las Robertas.
