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 current situation of the earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear plants is in a way the most severe crisis in the 65 years since World War II.”
Naoto Kan, Japanese Prime Minister

Every human being in this planet is born with an innate ability to help other people in some way.  The trick lies in practice.  It’s usually easier and more rewarding than you might have expected.  The world is full of people in need. Get out there! Ask questions! Find a problem you can help with.  This is not the time for alienating yourself when…We all know the future is about connectivity and we all have something to learn from one another.  IT’S TIME TO CONNECT!
– Jay Haze
