OFFICIAL STATEMENT

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.

-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.

WE WILL NOT FORGET.

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.

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.

NUNCA LO OLVIDAREMOS.

Paz, amor y respeto,

The BPM Festival
