Named one of Mixmag’s best international parties, BPM is not just your ordinary EDM festival. Originally designed as a networking event for the world’s top dance music talent, the spectacular international event has since become something far more substantial. This year, the festival will play host to more than 200 DJs and 23 label showcases. The lineup is stacked to and through the roof, and with beautiful Playa Del Carmen as the backdrop, you really can’t go wrong here (full lineup after the jump).
This year marks the fifth year anniversary for the BPM festival, and the event promises to set the Mexican Riviera abuzz. With events planned in eight venues day and night for 10 consecutive days (Dec 30-Jan 8) in the cozy resort town setting, its clear that this will be Mecca for the most hardcore electronic music enthusiasts and professional partiers all over the world.
You can’t host a ten-day event this time of the year and not also throw down in epic fashion for New Year’s Eve. I spent last New Years at Shpongle/Infected Mushroom in NYC. This year, I’m looking forward to seeing New York legend Danny Tenaglia and Italian producer extraordinaire Luca Bacchetti throw down under the Mexican moonlight. BPM is truly shaping up to look like an outrageous experience! If you’re adventurous and you can afford the travel expenses, this looks like the party of a lifetime. Do it up. Hop a plane, go to Mexico, and get down with the best DJs the world has to offer.
