BPM Festival organizers today released the trailer to their upcoming documentary which will premier at the festival’s tenth anniversary, set for Jan. 6-15, 2017 in Playa del Carmen, Mex.
Presented by Mixmag, Handlebar Films, and Bud Light Mexico, “The BPM Festival Official Documentary: Dancing in Paradise,” (trailer below) will highlight the festival’s historic rise to become one of the most influential dance music events in the world.
BPM Festival was founded by Craig Pettigrew and Philip Pulitano was a post-New Year’s gathering of industry professionals but has since grown to a global gathering of 70,000+ DJs, producers, revelers, and industry professionals. It has come to be described as a must-do festival for any fan of quality underground dance music.
The film, directed by Kevin MacKenzie, features interviews and behind-the-scenes views with festival directors and staff, Rafael Castro Castro, former Playa del Carmen Mayor and the Secretario General of the Municipio of Solidaridad at the time of filming, and Director of Bud Light Mexico Nicolas Mamboury. A wide range of BPM artists are also featured, including Apollonia, Boris, Cassy, Chus & Ceballos, Coyu, Danny Tenaglia, Dubfire, Dusky, Ellen Allien, Gorgon City, Hector, John Digweed, Lauren Lane, Nicole Moudaber, Richie Hawtin, Robbie Akbal, Solomun, Stacey Pullen, and Steve Lawler.
Attendees of BPM Festival 2017 will enjoy a free screening of the film.
BPM Festival 2017 tickets are still available in three, seven, and ten-day packages. Individual tickets for select events are also on sale now.
