The BPM Festival Portugal Confirms Phase 1 Artist Announcement

The BPM Festival has been held annually in Playa del Carmen, Mexico since 2008. Unlike a traditional weekend-long festival experience, BPM has taken place over 10 full days, hosting over 70,000 guests including DJ’s, promoters and fanatics alike. Earlier this year, a shooting at the annual Mexico edition forced organizers to cancel future events in Mexico, as well as it's inaugural appearance in Brazil. However, out of the ashes of The BPM Festival Mexico rises the festival’s first Portuguese event.

This year BPM will host its first European edition at Praia de Rocha on Portugal’s southern coast. The festival will span from September 14 through September 17.

The phase 1 announcement features 63 artists in the house and techno genres, including the likes of Alan Fitzpatrick, Chris Liebing, Dubfire, Jamie Jones and Seth Troxler.

BPM promises the announcement of many more artists in the coming months.
