While celebrating its ten-year anniversary in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, The BPM Festival announced this week plans to expand the BPM brand with two new festivals in Brazil and Portugal this year.
The BPM Festival: Brazil will be taking place this Spring from April 28 – May 1, 2017 in the beach resort towns of Praia Brava, Itajai and Balneário Camboriú. The BPM Festival’s co-founders and directors, Craig Pettigrew and Phillip Pulitano, are partnering with the owner of the highly acclaimed Warung Beach Club, Gustavo Conti. Warung Beach Club is famous for its open-air venue and sunrises as well as being consistently ranked in the top 25 in the DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll.
Both BPM co-founders, Craig Pettigrew and Phillip Pulitano, reflected on the growth of The BPM Festival since its inception in 2008 and the upcoming expansion of the brand. “BPM’s organic growth over the last 10 years speaks to the integrity of the artists and the music that we present. We’re proud to have launched a dozen plus DJ careers and be a stand out platform for quality underground music. We are looking forward to expanding our vision and festival family aesthetic to Brazil and Portugal ” said Craig Pettigrew. Phillip Pulitano continued, “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.”
