“One New Year’s resolution you should make, however, is to attend BPM Festival, returning on 4th January to the gloriously tropical climes of Mexico’s stunning coastline region, Playa Del Carmen, for its sixth edition… Originally conceived as the industry’s chance to escape the grind of constant travelling and endless late nights, by offering a series of beachside parties in paradise with plenty of downtime, its evolved into a fully-fledged festival bearing possibly the longest line-up of underground dance talent we’ve ever laid eyes on each year. It’s only getting bigger, too.” — DJ Mag
