As Mexico's internationally-renown The BPM Festival celebrates 10 years of success with 10 days of the best in underground sounds in Playa Del Carmen, the brand forges new paths into the future.

Today, the festival Pete Tong called “firmly established” on “the techno tourist trail” announces two expansion events in Brazil and Portugal, coming to swift fruition April 28 through May 1 of 2017, and September of 2017, respectively.

“BPM’s organic growth over the last 10 years speaks to the integrity of the artists and the music that we present,” co-founder and director Craig Pettigrew is quoted in a press release. “We’re proud to have launched a dozen DJ careers and be a stand out platform for quality underground music, and we are looking forward to expanding our vision and festival family aesthetic to Brazil and Portugal.”

BPM Brazil will descend upon the beach resort towns of Praia Brava, Itajai, and Balneário Camboriú. It is a collaborative effort with Gustavo Conti, local owner of the famed Warung Beach Club, an open-air venue that parties well past sunrise ranked by DJ Mag as one of the top 25 clubs in the world.

BPM Portugal taps into the European market with an off-the-beaten-path beach location yet to be announced.

“After 10 years of honing our craft, we’re ready to take our grand show on the road,” continues co-founder and director Phillip Pulitano. “We hope to continue our commitment to diverse and forward-thinking lineups, expand to new territories, and show the beauty of different countries to our international fans who are the true techno tourists.”
