Dear BPM Family & Friends

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies remain with the families and friends of those victimized by the horrific events of January 16, the final night of our 10-day music festival in Playa del Carmen. Our hearts are broken by the loss of six wonderful lives that were cruelly cut short. We will not forget them as we struggle to come to grips that such a tragedy could have occurred at an event that is the very embodiment of positivity and shared love of music in the global dance community.

As days go by, we will draw inspiration from Kirk and Geovanni’s heroic and selfless acts. We will also continue to grieve the deaths and pray for the families of the four victims who were with us as guests.

-Geovanni Francisco Ruiz Murillo (Mexico) Security detail
-Rafael Penaloza Vega (Mexico)
-Alejandra Villanueva (USA)
-Daniel Pessina (Italy)
-Giovanni Arturo Amparan Saragossa (Mexico)

The dance floor is where people come together to share joy, be with friends, create memories, and celebrate life. While our festival and dance community have experienced a tragedy, we’d also like to remember the magical moments, new friendships, and beautiful landscape of Mexico that we’ve all shared over the last 10 years.

We appreciate all the support from fans all over the world. We look forward to celebrating with you once again in the near future. For now, we will be postponing our plans for The BPM Festival: Brazil until further notice but we do hope you will join us at The BPM Festival: Portugal (September 2017) later this year.

Our love goes out to all of our extended BPM Family fans, artists, staff, industry, volunteers, the local community and especially to all the victims’ families. As members of the global dance music community, let us stay strong in the knowledge that we stand together against all kinds of violence and will continue to spread love through our music.


Peace, Love & Respect,

The BPM Festival

Queridos amigos y familia BPM,

Nuestros pensamientos y condolencias más profundas siguen siendo para las familias y amigos de las víctimas de los terribles acontecimientos del 16 de enero, la noche final de nuestro festival de 10 días en Playa del Carmen. Nuestros corazones están rotos por la pérdida de seis vidas maravillosas, que fueron cruelmente terminadas. No los olvidaremos, mientras nos esforzamos por comprender que tal tragedia ocurrió en un evento que es la encarnación misma del positivismo y el amor compartido por la música en la comunidad dance mundial.

A medida que pasen los días, nos inspiraremos en los actos heroicos y desinteresados ​​de Kirk y Geovanni. También seguiremos lamentando las muertes y orando por las familias de las cuatro víctimas que estaban con nosotros como asistentes.

-Kirk Wilson (Canada) Equipo de seguridad
-Geovanni Francisco Ruiz Murillo (Mexico) Equipo de seguridad
-Rafael Peñaloza Vega (Mexico)
-Alejandra Villanueva (USA)
-Daniel Pessina (Italy)
-Giovanni Arturo Amparan Saragossa (Mexico)

El dance floor es donde la gente se reúne para compartir alegría, estar con amigos, crear recuerdos y celebrar la vida. Si bien nuestra comunidad de festivales y música dance ha sufrido una tragedia, también nos gustaría recordar los momentos mágicos, las nuevas amistades y el hermoso paisaje mexicano, que todos hemos compartido durante los últimos 10 años.

Agradecemos todo el apoyo de los fans de todo el mundo. Esperamos celebrar con ustedes una vez más en un futuro cercano. Por ahora, vamos a posponer nuestros planes para The BPM Festival: Brasil hasta nuevo aviso, pero esperamos que se unan a nosotros en The BPM Festival: Portugal (septiembre de 2017) a finales de este año.

Nuestro amor se extiende a toda nuestra familia de fans, artistas, staff, industria, voluntarios, la comunidad local y en especial a todas las familias de las víctimas. Como miembros de la comunidad mundial de música dance, mantengámonos firmes en la idea de que estamos juntos contra todo tipo de violencia y continuaremos difundiendo amor a través de nuestra música.


Paz, amor y respeto,

The BPM Festival

It is with great sadness to share that police have confirmed reports of a lone shooter outside the Blue Parrot nightclub in Playa Del Carmen earlier today, which resulted in five fatalities and fifteen injured. The violence began on 12th street in front of the club and three members of the BPM security team were among those whose lives were lost while trying to protect patrons inside the venue.

The BPM Festival has been working closely with the local authorities (Seguridad Publica / Policia Turistica) throughout the festival to ensure public safety and security for all visitors. We are overcome with grief over this senseless act of violence and we are cooperating fully with local law enforcement and government officials as they continue their investigation.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims and their families and all those affected by these tragic events.

Es con mucha tristeza que compartimos los reportes confirmados de la policía que las acciones de un sujeto solitario en Blue Parrot hace unas horas, resultaron en sucesos fatales con cuatro fallecidos y quince heridos. Este acto de violencia inició en Calle 12 frente al club y tres miembros del equipo de seguridad de BPM están entre esas vidas que perdimos, mientras trataban de proteger a los asistentes en el interior de la sede.

The BPM Festival ha estado trabajando en estrecha colaboración con las autoridades locales (Seguridad Pública / Policía Turística) durante el festival, para asegurar el bienestar de todos los asistentes. Estamos conmovidos con el dolor de este acto de violencia sin sentido, y cooperando plenamente con la policía local y funcionarios del gobierno a medida que continúan su investigación.

Nuestros pensamientos y oraciones están con todas las víctimas y sus familias y todos aquellos afectados por estos trágicos acontecimientos.

Listen to YOTTO’s mix for our 12 Days of BPM Podcasts

The 12 Days of BPM Podcasts are nearly over but Finnish DJ/producer YOTTO keeps you dancing with our eleventh mix, premiered by Dancing Astronaut. Growing up in a house full of music and musicians, it wasn't long until YOTTO began working on his craft. Taking inspiration from the likes of Kevin Saunderson, Kerri Chandler, and Masters at Work, his deep knowledge and understanding of music and production led him to release on his work on Anjunadeep. From remixes for RÜFÜS and Coldplay to having one of his tracks named the 'Essential New Tune' by Pete Tong in 2016, it's easy to see why Dancing Astronaut selected YOTTO as one of the 'Top 25 Artists to Watch in 2017.' Make your way to Wah Wah during #BPM2017 on Thursday, January 12 for All Gone Pete Tong and Friday, January 13 for the Anjunadeep showcase to catch YOTTO's BPM debut. Get your tickets now!
