“If you’ve never been before and you like this style of music, this is definitely the place to come.” — Mark Knight
“The whole theme of BPM is the champion of the underground, that’s what people cherish. It was never about big theatrical events, pyrotechnics, stuff like that. It’s focused more about the music, and the social circle. I always get asked the question ‘Is Vegas the new Ibiza?’, well really no, Playa Del Carmen is almost Ibiza to an American audience.” — Pete Tong
“What I see, is that it’s just not a regular festival. You can come here to either party or just vacation, or do both. You’ve got a lot of options. You’re in the sun and you’re in the heat. Again, we play many festivals around the world but you get everything at this one festival. BPM has done a really job of including almost everybody. It’s almost bad if you’re not playing BPM.” — Art Department
Give me one valid reason of why The BPM festival shouldn’t be your next destination.
