The BPM Festival is an annual world-class electronic music festival which takes place in the beginning of January in idyllic Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Originally designed as an elite dance music industry networking event, the festival has morphed into an international mélange of electronic music lovers, DJs, producers, revelers and party-goers. The BPM Festival features world class international DJs and producers, which in the past has included Dubfire, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Guy Gerber, Lee Burridge, M.A.N.D.Y., Sander Kleinenberg, Steve Angello, Steve Lawler, Victor Calderone, and many more.

Since its inception in 2008, parties are hosted both day and night at multiple venues around the beautiful resort town, tucked into the coastline of the Mayan peninsula, warm turquoise Caribbean waters, white sand beaches, mysterious jungles and ancient ruins. With a variety of luxurious and affordable boutique hotels and endless number of places for dining, dancing, beach parties and clubbing, BPM Festival is a perfect opportunity for music lovers and party-goers all around the world to escape winter and revel in the sun.
