#BPMOperationHydration

[Versión en español abajo]

Over the past few years, The BPM Festival has been contributing to the local community and getting involved in donations, events and charitable activities.

One of our summer local actions for this year is called (in English) #BPMOperationHydration.

If you live in Playa del Carmen you will agree with us when we say the heat can be exhausting during the summer season. So, we decided to help the community stay hydrated.

Fiji water and The BPM Festival join together on our mission to keep the people of Playa del Carmen hydrated.

Our goal is to share a free bottle of water with the people working under and in the sun all day. If you find our team on the streets, please don’t hesitate to ask for your bottle of water.

Reuse or bring your empty bottle(s) to authorized recycling spots in Playa del Carmen. You can also Bring it to the BPM Store which is open on weekends (Friday to Sunday from 12 to 6pm) and receive a surprise free gift.

Remember that water is vital to our organs. If you are in Playa del Carmen, please join #BPMOperationHydration.

Desde hace ya algunos años hemos buscado la oportunidad de colaborar con la comunidad local e involucrarnos en eventos de donativo y otras actividades solidarias.

Una de nuestras acciones locales de verano se llama #OperacionHidratacionBPM. Si vives en Playa del Carmen coincidirás con nosotros que durante esta temporada el calor llega a ser agotador.  Por lo que decidimos apoyar a la comunidad a mantenerse hidratados.

Con el apoyo de agua Fiji, The BPM Festival busca concientizar a la sociedad a tomar más agua regularmente. Hemos enfocado esta campaña en regalar una botella de agua a aquellas personas que trabajan todo el día bajo el sol.

Si en tus días de verano te encuentras a nuestro equipo, no dudes en pedir tu botella de agua.

Reutiliza o lleva tu botella vacía a reciclar en los puntos autorizados. Si lo llevas a la Tienda BPM, abierta todos los fines de semana (viernes a domingo de 12 a 6pm), obtén una sorpresa.

Recuerda que el agua es vital para nuestro organismo. Si estas en Playa del Carmen, únete a #OperaciónHidrataciónBPM.

Check out Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival June 16-19

If you’re counting down the days until January 6th then why not get a taste of things to come at the incredibly unique Secret Solstice Festival in Iceland this month? Showcases include the familiar names of No.19 Music, Culprit and Visionquest at this awesome four day festival. Aside from all the amazing artists scheduled to perform, the festival boasts 96 hours of continuous sunlight. That’s right, in Iceland during the summer solstice the sun never sets as it’s so close to the Arctic Circle, but don’t worry - you won’t freeze in this stunning corner of the world!

Festival goers will go straight to Hel (yes that’s a place in Iceland!) and dance it out to to their killer line up that is filled with lots of our BPM favorites Apollonia, Art Department, Benoit & Sergio, Derrick Carter, Droog, Edu Imbernon, Jamie Jones, Lee Curtiss, Matt Tolfrey, Maxxi Soundsystem, Nitin, Richy Ahmed, Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves, Skream, Stacey Pullen, wAFF, and more.

What’s more, you can party in a volcano, a glacier, a geothermal lagoon or attend a midnight sun boat party at one of their awesome festival side parties. Not a bad way to kick start the summer festival season!

Onca Maya donation / Donativo a Onca Maya

[Versión en español abajo]

The BPM Festival donates to local organization Onca Maya A.C supporting jaguar conservation programs in the region

The jaguar is an endangered species, also regarded as a magical beast in mythology dating back to the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. The BPM Festival is spotlighting the plight of this iconic cat and supports big cat rescue from the tourism trade in Mexico, and is proud to announce a new alliance with local organization Onca Maya. During a press conference Thursday, April 28, a donation was given to the Onca Maya representatives.

Onca Maya is a non-profit organization established in 2006 by a group of biologists, some of whom have been dedicated to the cause for over two decades, concerned about the future of natural habitats in the Mayan region.

Based in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Onca Maya's mission is to provide the tools and information needed to help biodiversity conservation in the Mayan Region, and to participate as decision-makers to protect the habitat.

At the press conference, Onca Maya shared that its estimated around 20,000 jaguars inhabited Mexico in the past, and only around 4,000 are left today. The most recent census registered only 200 animals in the north region of Quintana Roo.

Concerned about the region’s biodiversity, The BPM Festival supports this local initiative that enriches the natural attractions. In our ninth edition, The BPM Festival donated $70,000 pesos, to support local jaguar conservation programs via Onca Maya A.C.  The total corresponds to $1 peso per attendee.

The BPM Festival entrega donativo económico a la organización local Onca Maya A.C para apoyar programas de conservación del jaguar

El jaguar es una especie en peligro de extinción y una presencia mágica y mitológica que data de la era de la civilización Maya y Azteca.  Ante la difícil situación de este icónico felino, BPM decidió apoyar su protección y rescate mediante una alianza con la organización local Onca Maya.  En rueda de prensa el jueves 28 de abril, se entregó a los representantes de dicha asociación un donativo.

Onca Maya es una organización no gubernamental formada en 2006 por un grupo de conservacionistas preocupados por el futuro de los recursos naturales en la región maya, algunos de ellos dedicados al tema por más de dos décadas.

Con base en Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, su misión es generar herramientas e información necesarias para contribuir a la conservación de la biodiversidad en la región maya y participar en la toma de decisiones en torno a esta.

En rueda de prensa se comentó que se calcula que en México existieron cerca de 20mil jaguares, de los cuales solo quedan alrededor de 4mil.  En la zona norte de Quintana Roo, el censo más reciente registró cerca de 200 animales.

Preocupados por la biodiversidad de la región y dispuestos a sumar a aquellos proyectos locales que enriquecen los atractivos naturales del destino, The BPM Festival dona la cantidad de $70mil pesos, para apoyar programas enfocados a la conservación del jaguar mediante Onca Maya A.C. Total que corresponde a $1peso por cada asistente a la 9a. edición del festival.
