The BPM Festival: Sixth Edition January 4 - 13, 2013



The BPM Festival returns to Playa del Carmen from January 4 - 13, 2013 for its sixth year. After the smash success of last year’s milestone fifth anniversary, The BPM Festival continues its tradition of bringing the world’s best DJs to one of the most alluring party hotspots on the planet.

Unlike other festivals, The BPM festival is a 10-day celebration of music while offering all the stunning attractions and adventures of the Mayan Riviera. One can enjoy dance beats both day and night at multiple venues at a relaxed pace, with ample time to discover the sparkling turquoise Caribbean waters, white sand beaches, mysterious jungles and ancient ruins.

This global gathering of DJs, producers, revelers and party professionals has become a must for any music lover with a discerning taste for quality electronic dance music. BPM 2012’s fifth year anniversary blowout had over 35,000 attendees enjoy more than 200 artists and 50 events over 10 sun-drenched days and cool nights. As global clubbing scribe DJ Mag describes it, "The festival affords plenty of space, time and opportunity to meet people on a level as they recline in the blissful setting of a white sandy beach surrounded by lush, tropical plantations, allowing easier integration into the influx of what’s essentially an A-to-Z of who’s who in house music today."

With over 100 world-class artists returning this year, BPM 2013 promises to be the best edition yet. Like us on facebook & follow us on twitter for exciting news & line-up announcements!

The music is not my cup of tea, but the people watching is not to be missed. You will see some of the most beautiful faces and bodies ever, and the fashion is amazing.

I have to agree with you there Hooterville Mom. We book our room at the Royal as far away as possible. It's a bit of a nighmare actually the constant boom boom boom. I swear they play the same song over and over with the same monatonous beat.....I'm just getting old I guess.

But as you say the people watching is bar none. People from all over the world come for the BPM every year. Just wish we could book our holiday at another time, but we can't. Sooo, we carry on....Can't beat them, may as well join them.....
