The BPM Festival, the house and techno marathon that takes place each year in Mexico's Playa del Carmen shortly after the New Year, is going ten days in 2017 in honor of its tenth anniversary. Ahead of the beachside bacchanal, scheduled for January 6-15, organizers have shared the massive first wave of artist talent and showcases.
Carl Cox, John Digweed, Martin Buttrich, Daniel Bell, and Nicole Moudaber are just a handful of the 100-plus DJs confirmed to be heading south for the winter festival; along with Guy Gerber, Dusky, Lauren Lane, The Martinez Brothers, and Kollektiv Turmstrasse. Other acts, such as Nick Monaco, Dubfire and No Regular Play, will be performing live (or in Dubfire's case, a live-hybrid set).
As for the showcases, Romanian label [a:rpia:r] will be making its BPM debut, while returners to the festival include Lee Burridge's All Day I Dream, Solomun's Diynamic in the Jungle, Marco Carola's Music On, Gerber's Rumors, and Jamie Jones' Paradise.
