FestPop Awards BPM Best Music Festival in Mexico


The BPM Music Festival | January 8-17, 2016

The cornucopia of Music Festivals 

In its 9th year BPM a 10-day festival for underground or deep house dance has rapidly established itself as an essential music destination on the global festival circuit. Last year’s programming showcased over 375 artists with more than 60,000 attendees from over 60 countries descending upon the festival. A dance music affair like no other, The BPM Festival is the perfect kickoff to the year for industry professionals, artists, and fans of all forms of underground dance music.

The BPM Music Festival continues to showcase the world’s premiere DJs. BPM draws in an international hybrid of festivalgoers, which contributes to the unique DNA of BPM and its mystique. The 24-hour programming combined with a plethora of activities from water sports and eco tourism, to venturing off the beaten path to explore Mayan ruins and archeological sites.

The BPM Festival co-founders Craig Pettigrew and Phillip Anthony Pulitano selected Playa Del Carmen as the home of BPM as a more central location for deep house fans in contrast to schlepping it all the way to Sirocco Beach, Ibiza. The international airport in Cancún makes getting to and from your home country easy. The bonus for Americans is zero jet lag since Mexico shares our Midwest CST time zone.

New for 2016, The BPM Festival unveils the official BPM crest spotlighting the Black Jaguar in traditional mask form, as one of Mexico’s national animals. The Black Jaguar  (also known as “panther”) is an endangered species and a magical beast with mythology dating back to the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. BPM is spotlighting the plight of this iconic cat and supports big cat rescue from the tourism trade in Mexico.
 The BPM Festival offers festivalgoers an unmatched setting in Playa Del Carmen, amidst the scenic landscape of the Mayan Riviera. The cosmopolitan beach town is home to stunning beaches, breathtaking ecotourism sites and attractions, ancient archaeological wonders, and world-class nightlife.
