Mexico’s BPM Festival Returns For 2016
Mexico has found it easy to hit international headlines in recent years, although admittedly not always for the most pleasant of reasons. But away from the brutality of the drug wars affecting some areas, the country’s electronic music scene has had house and techno lovers the world over sitting up and starting to take notice.
2016 will see the ninth year of the country’s renowned BPM Festival. Held across ten days in Playa del Carmen – the Mayan Riviera resort is as close as Mexico gets to Ibiza’s glossy, beautiful scene – the January festival’s line up featured over 375 artists this year including the likes of Richie Hawtin, Maya Jane Coles, Luciano and Sasha. Promoters have tipped 2016 to be bigger and better with further announcements still to be made as a who’s who of the electronic music world descend upon Mexico for sun and tequila a plenty.
