The BPM Festival announced the Phase 2 artist lineup, with 247 artists added, plus new showcases and venues for its 2016 edition taking place January 8-17, 2016 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
The BPM Festival will also host parties at select new venues for 2016. The BPM Festival’s incredible new venue The Jungle will provide extended afternoon till dawn parties where fans can expect a festival within a festival; complete with multiple stages, palapa, intimate lounges, an adjacent cenote and a food court featuring local food concession partners.
For the first time, Day parties will be hosted at the open-air Wah Wah Beach Bar and brand new Martina Beach Club, with Day parties returning to the scenic Canibal Royal — all located right along beautiful stretches of white sandy beaches and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Parties will also take place at the new Coralina Daylight Club in the Grand Hyatt hotel.
New for 2016, Night parties will take place Salsanera, a brand new two-room venue built for dancing all night long, and also return to two floors at La Santanera, in its open-air terrace and main room Club. Both clubs will each host two parties for the price of one. Intimate local favorite La Mezcalina will also feature a number of events. Night and select day parties will be returning to Blue Parrot, with its spacious design featuring a pool overlooking the Mayan Riviera, along with an open air restaurant, and top notch sound system. Meanwhile, Tribeca will continue to host a series of free parties showcasing up and coming talent.
