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!

Let’s clear the air: Dust reduction efforts for 2011
When Electric Zoo opened up last year, on Saturday September 4 at 11am, the Randall’s Island Park lawn was lush, long, and seemingly healthy. But the dancing and frolicking of 25,000 pairs of feet coupled with the unusually dry summer took a toll, and by the end of the day, the grass had been trampled and a lot of dirt had been kicked up into the air. When the wind gusted – especially around the Sunday School Grove, but in other parts of the festival grounds too – the dust was downright obnoxious. Many of you, understandably, have expressed concerns about this. We hear you, and we’ve been working on measures to address this problem in 2011. We’re serious about doing everything we can to minimize the dust, so we can ALL breathe easy and focus on what we love – the music!
Here’s a list of things we’ve put in place to reduce the dust:
  • Flooring will be used in all of the tents. This means that where all that dancing is going on, the grass will be protected and dirt won’t be kicked up.
  • Dirt service roads will be covered with flooring. As our crew travels in golf carts and other vehicles to get from place to place around the perimeter of the festival grounds, there’ll be far less dirt stirred up.
  • Making use of existing pavement for high traffic areas, including the area directly in front of the main stage. The main stage will be moved back this year in order to create more space. This will mean that a large area directly in front of the main stage will now be situated on pavement rather than grass. So when you “tear up the dancefloor” in front of the main stage, you’ll no longer be tearing up grass and kicking up dirt at the same time
We’ve also hired lawn specialists to consult with and work with our friends at Randall’s Island Park to improve on the maintenance of the field and to get it as healthy as possible before Electric Zoo. At their recommendation, we have also taken these measures:
  • Installed additional irrigation in early Spring
  • Lawn aeration
  • Reseeding, fertilizing and adding gypsum
Stay tuned for more lineup announcements!
