Daytime and nighttime shows are scheduled, in various venues ranging from the beach, to the jungle, nightclubs and other spots in and around town.
1) Beachside BPM Events
BPM originally started as a beach-side event and continues to take over the beach in Playa del Carmen for the 10 days of events. Shows take place in the famous Mamitas Beach Club. Right next door to Mamitas, along the same stretch of beach, you will find KOOL beach club. These are both located around Calle 26 and the beach.
A little north is Cannibal Royal (calle 48) with a hip vibe and a more intimate setting. At calle 4, Fusion Beach club also hosts a variety of shows.
2) Night club BPM Events
Nightclubs include famous Blue Parrot. The Blue Parrot is a beachside club, open daily and nightly, that was one of the first in Playa del Carmen, having opened in 1984. Located on the beach, at the bottom of the nightlife hub of 12th street, the location could not be better. Next door to Blue Parrot, the Coco Maya beach and nightclub will also be hosting a variety of BPM shows. Other venues on 12th will include Tribeca,
La Santanera, located on 10th and 5th also hosts quite a few BPM events.
3) BPM Outside Playa del Carmen
Events and shows also take place outside the main Playa del Carmen town area. One of the venues is the Blue Venado Beach Club, about 15 minutes drive outside town, where you can party in a remote beach / jungle environment. The eco-chic destination of Tulum, will also be the top spot for certain artists on the roster as well. With rustic accommodation and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Tulum is attracting more and more artists and visitors.
4) BPM Pop Ups
There are always a sprinkle of random shows, known as pop ups, going on around town, so once you are here, keep your ears open for the info. In 2014, Richie Hawtin & Dubfire announced a surprise show at a local taco place, El Fogon. The show was announced at 6pm and by 7pm the streets were flooded!
