Celebrating its tenth anniversary in Playa del Carmen, Mexico this January 6-15, 2017, The BPM Festival is very excited to announce ‘X : 10 Years of The BPM Festival’ compilation album mixed by Vatos Locos head honcho and Mexico’s own son Hector. As the second compilation album released by The BPM Festival, this very special release will highlight key players from the festival’s decade long history including Carl Cox, Dubfire, Jamie Jones, Jonny White, Josh Wink, Nicole Moudaber, and The Martinez Brothers, plus tracks that stood the test of the time and soundtracked the days and nights festival-goers danced upon the beaches of Playa del Carmen and exclusive VL Recordings and 8bit Records tracks from Andrea Oliva, Hector, Marco Carola, and Timo Maas.
'I feel extremely honored to have compiled and mixed ‘X’ to celebrate 10 years of The BPM Festival. Featuring exclusives and classics from artists close to the festival’s heart, this compilation will raise money for local charities to thank the community for playing host to one of the world’s best festivals for a decade.” -- Hector

About The BPM Festival
The BPM Festival is an annual ten day and night electronic music festival, founded by Craig Pettigrew and Philip Pulitano, held in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. BPM, which stands for “Bartenders, Promoters, Musicians” was created as a post-New Year’s gathering of industry professionals and has grown to a  70,000+ global gathering of DJs, producers, revelers and industry professionals; a must for any music lover with a discerning taste for quality underground dance music.  BPM parties are hosted both day and night at multiple venues in Playa Del Carmen, a picturesque beach town that runs along miles of soft white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters on the Mayan Riviera. The town offers a variety of luxurious and affordable boutique hotels and condos, and endless options for dining and tourism, including: ancient Mayan ruins, cenotes, aquatic sports and ecotourism.
In 2013, The BPM Festival won 'International Festival' from the DJ Awards in Ibiza and in 2016 was nominated by International Dance Music Awards for 'Best Music Event’ for a third year in a row, as well as “Festival of the Year” at the first ever Electronic Music Awards & Foundation. In addition, The BPM Festival won “Best Festival” in the EMPO Awards in 2015 with a nomination in 2016. Now embarking on its tenth year, The BPM Festival continues to be a dance music lover's tropical paradise and the perfect winter getaway.
