BPM Festival Returns to Playa Del Carmen


Marking its ninth anniversary, The BPM Festival returns to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico on Jan. 8-17.

Kicking off the global festival calendar as the “preeminent destination for dance music enthusiasts,” BPM delivers an “incomparable festival experience while providing the essential winter getaway along the picturesque Caribbean coastline.”

Stretched across 10 days of continuous musical programming with an ever-growing calendar of events and roster of global talent, The BPM Festival continues to solidify its stature on the international festival circuit.

New for 2016, The BPM Festival has unveiled the official BPM crest spotlighting the Black Jaguar in traditional mask form, as one of Mexico’s national animals. The Black Jaguar 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.

Last year’s programming showcased more than 375 artists during 10 days and nights, 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 festival plays host to showcases from top record labels and underground party brands.

Serving as the official ticketing platform for The BPM Festival 2016, Tixr, a new ticketing platform, offers 2016 festival passes. Three-, seven- and 10-day passes are currently on sale.
