BPM lures in thousand of revellers from abroad, plus vacationers roped in by the call of the beach clubs and a growing contingent of locals. There’s nothing else like BPM in North America.” – Resident Advisor

Celebrating its 8th anniversary, The BPM Festival will make its return to Playa del Carmen, Mexico on January 9-18, 2015. Since its inception, BPM has grown organically each year with an astounding roster of global talent, quickly establishing itself as an essential stop on the festival circuit for all underground dance music aficionados and as an essential winter holiday destination. The 10-day festival provides a distinctive opportunity for attendees to enjoy the beauty of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in an idyllic beach setting – and dance around-the-clock.
Fans have been anxiously awaiting the Phase 1 artist lineup for the eighth edition which brings a mix of BPM veterans and exciting new talent that does not disappoint. BPM artists will be performing at both day and night events with over 75 events to choose from over the 10-day festival and many of the world’s leading record labels will be hosting showcases for their esteemed artists.
New for 2015, The BPM Festival will be introducing payment plans for festival passes so fans need not worry about budgeting restraints as the holiday season approaches. Attendees will now be able to pay for their festival pass in several easy installments.
