It is no surprise that electronic music has taken the world by storm. From EDC in the United States, Ultra Japan, and Tomorrowland in Belgium, a global music community has been created. Now, Central America will join the ranks of those regions falling for the music revolution. Panama is taking the initiative by hosting the third annual The Day After festival, and festival organizers Showpro and Disco Donnie are showcasing their determination to lead Central America in the EDM scene as their headliner is none other than Tiësto himself.

If the father of trance isn’t convincing enough, it was recently announced that deep house artist Oliver Heldens will be joining the lineup as well as:  Damian Lazarus, Art Department, DVBBS, Claude VonStroke, Fur Coat, and Desolat Talent. Featuring a main outdoor stage and the first ever Beatport stage in South America, inside, you’ve have endless talent to choose from.

The location is second to none. Panama is known for beautiful beaches, rich history, and exquisite cuisine. The southernmost country in Central America, the weather is always gorgeous and current tourism trends have allowed for the country to undergo serious development. Places like the Pearl Islands are home to private airstrips, luxury resorts, and private yachts that you can charter when you want to relax from the pounding bass of the festival. If an endless budget is not yet within your reach, Panama is also home to gorgeous beaches that stretch for miles with small currents and consistently warm temperatures.
