BPM Through The Eyes Of The Artists

The BPM Festival may be almost a month in the past, but the beats and warmth of Playa Del Carmen are still fresh in the minds of LessThan3. We could wax poetic all day about how BPM beats the pants off of most of the world’s music gatherings, but we’d rather let the artists tell you. We asked eleven BPM 2014 performers what they love about the festival, and everything from the food to the family vibes came up. Check the quotes below, and get excited for Jan. 2015.

Adriatique @ Culprit
Fusion Beach Club
Jan. 6, 2014

“As it was our first [BPM], we had loads of expectations and heard plenty of good things in advance. We can say it’s even better than what we heard. The place, the vibe, the people, the food, seeing friends from all over the globe, hanging out with your crew, hearing other great artists–the list goes on.”

ENDO @ Bedrock Showcase
Mamita’s Beach Club
Jan. 3, 2014

“This year was not only the best BPM Festival, but possibly the best week-long festival I’ve ever been to. I was there from the first record until the last, and all of the madness in between and every day was amazing. The DJs were all on their A-game playing great sets. It was great catching up with all my dear friends and artists from around the world, and Playa is always such a great vibe.”

Camea @ Bpitch Control
Coco Maya Beach Club
Jan. 3, 2014

“BPM might be one of the most amazing festivals I have ever been to. You can tell the staff really loves what they do because they are all so nice and organized, and it’s unbelievable how many artists come down and share music with each other. It’s so amazing to be in such a beautiful location just hanging with everyone on the beach and hopping around to all of these parties. I wish it would last a month and not just a week!”

Three @ Listed Productions
Mamita’s
Jan. 9, 2014

“The location. The time of year. Nearly everything is a simple walk from wherever you’re standing. I see it as an industry holiday for us after the normal holiday madness has ended. Just so laid back yet with excellent parties which are mostly outdoors on the beach! And then Tulum is just a short jaunt away and you can really vacation properly there if you choose.”
