BPM Festival 2013

The BPM Festival in Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico is considered one of, if not THE festival of our times.


In its sixth year of existence this edition is going to break all records previously achieved simply by its massively expanded line up including more than 250 (!) artists from all over the globe, representing countless labels and much more.

From the 4th to the 13th of January 2013 the whole circus will move down to Mexico to celebrate the arrival of the new age -imagine one week of non-stop partying in a location that is of the most beautiful on the planet. You can enjoy the most beautiful beaches at daytime and numerous parties during the night. Sounds a bit like Ibiza but this is definitely something different as it is more concentrated and Playa del Carmen is unique. On top you can make trips to the Cenotes (underground water reservoirs of pure water) or other incredible spots – but i guess if you head for the BPM festival you are more into some (not so) serious partying accompanied by some easy beaching and socializing of the finest as you will meet people from all over the world.

The venues where the different showcases are held range from a spectacular cave which is originally a restaurant over some incredible beach clubs to some real dance temples – all prepared for your utmost listening pleasure. To name the line-up here would take too much space, you can see it on the posters – there is no other one coming even close to it.

To get there the makers of the festival work together with different agencies, from Europe it is recommended to contact Technotravel, for South America contact PDC Travel, for USA and Canada contact Expedia and finally to buy only tickets for the festival go to wantickets. If you want to know about hotels and possibilities for accomodation then please visit the homepage of the BPM festival and go to ‘viaje’ or simply click here.

And in case you can not make it there but would like to listen to it then you can do so on Ibiza Sonica Radio, Sunday 6th they will be broadcasting from 5 pm to 9 pm from Kool Beach with the likes of Josh Wink and Stacey Pullen and from 1 am to 5 am from the Blue Parrot with Nic Fanciulli and Carl Cox. Then Monday 7th from 5 pm to 9 pm from Kool Beach again with Nic Fanciulli b2b with a special guest, Laurent Lane and Robert Dietz and from 10 pm to 6 am from Coco Maya the Circo Loco crew with Seth Troxler, The Martinez Brothers, Maceo Plex, Tale of Us, Andrew Grant, Ellen Allien and System of Survival. And last but NOT least Tuesday 8th from 12 pm to 8 pm from Mamitas the Ibiza Sonica Showcase with Xavier Fux, Igor Marijuan, Simon Baker, Nick Curly and a very special guest tba.
