[The Audiofiles] The BPM Festival Goes Global With Expansion Events in Portugal and Brazil

Standard

For a select group of audiophiles, the New Years celebrations have continued far into 2017 as they dance with delectable House and techno rhythms in Playa del Carmen at The BPM Festival, deep into the heart of the night. But for others – including the team behind the BPM Festival – this has been a time of change, growth, and transformation. With this year’s event in full swing, The BPM brand is excited to announce their plans to expand the franchise internationally with two new festivals in Brazil and Portugal in 2017.

From April 28th through May 1st, frolic in the gorgeous beach resort towns of Praia Brava, Itajai and Balneário Camboriú with Brazilian partner Gustavo Conti, owner of the esteemed Warung Beach Club. Known for their fabled sunrises over the open air venue, Warung Beach Club finds itself in the top quartile of The DJ Mag’s Top 100 Club polls. Meanwhile, across the pond in Europe, The BPM Festival’s Portugal iteration will descend on an untapped beach region in September and will be partnering with none other than Will Gregory of Goldfrapp fame.

Curated in almost a decade ago in 2008, the evolution of The BPM Festival has been a testament to the creative ethos cultivated by friends, Co-Founders and Directors Craig Pettigrew and Phillip Pulitano.

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

[The Audiofiles] Day Zero Returns to Tulum For a Mystical, Musical Journey

Standard

One part musical journey, one part mystical experience – what the Ancient Mayan Calendar surmised about the cultural significance of Day Zero has catapulted into a once in a lifetime, or once in a year if you’re lucky, party in a jungle paradise. Since 2012, Crosstown Rebels have frequented Tulum, encouraging revelers, moonchildren and wanderers from across the globe to dive in and celebrate the wonder of one of the world’s most singular events, entranced by an international roster of artists.

Old world magic meets new world sound as Day Zero continues to make a name for itself in the Mexican wilderness. Nestled deep in the heart of the jungle, Day Zero reflects the constant ebb and flow of the natural habitat. With each consecutive sunrise and sunset, the ethos of Day Zero seeps deep into the soul, while the palpable energy from the caves, cenotes and natural amphitheater linger around every corner.

With the new chapter of Day Zero comes a new cast of cohorts; in addition to Crosstown Rebels’ bossman Damian Lazarus, this year’s music will be supplied by Dinky, DJ Three, Serge Devant, Mathew Johnson, and Metrika, as well as representatives from other like-minded global crews such as Innervisions Ame and Dixon.  Day Zero makes its triumphant returns from January 13-14th.
