As its ten-day, ten-year anniversary festivities hit full stride, The BPM Festival announced plans to expand the BPM brand globally with two new festivals in Brazil and Portugal in 2017.
The BPM Festival: Brazil will be taking place this spring, from April 28 – May 1, 2017 in the picturesque beach resort towns of Praia Brava, Itajai and Balneário Camboriú with Brazilian partner Gustavo Conti, owner of highly acclaimed Warung Beach Club. The open-air venue, famous for its golden sunrises, has been consistently ranked in the top 25 in the DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll and is often cited as one of the “best clubs in the world” by many of the world’s most renowned underground DJs.
Across the pond in Europe, The BPM Festival: Portugal will be held in an untapped beach region in September 2017. The festival will be partnering with Will Gregory with more details to be announced.
Since The BPM Festival’s inception in 2008, the simple idea of friends dancing on a sandy beach in winter, sparked by Co-Founders and Directors Craig Pettigrew and Phillip Pulitano has ignited the international dance music scene on the Mayan Riviera in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico over the last ten years. Both co-founders reflected on the festival’s growth and the influence it extends in kicking off each new year as it looks towards global expansion.
“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.”

+More to be Announced
Following their most successful season to date in Ibiza in 2016, world-famous nightlife revolutionaries elrow have announced that they will join forces with Amnesia next season for their 2017 island residency. With ten consecutive sold-out events rounding off Space’s final year, elrow will host 18 nights from 3rd June to 30th September 2017 which will be spread across both the main room and the terrace of Amnesia.
With a production and stage design team that’s unrivalled, the promise of elrow’s latest island spectacular will not disappoint. Each show will be packed full with incredible sets, costumes, props, street theatre performances, circus characters, animation experts and showers of inflatables and confetti that’ll blow the minds of both party novices and veterans.
The Arnau families latest concept, ‘elrowcity’ – reformulating the “all-nighter” with one international guest centre of a stage constructed as an ode to their hometown – will take over Room 1 of the club. The terrace will be hosted by one of elrow’s ever-irregular schedule of shows, themed to such theatrical titles as: ‘From Lost to the River’; ‘Sambodromo do Brasil’; ‘Bollywood’; ‘Singermorning’; ‘Feria de Abril’; ‘Pychedelic Trip’; or, ‘Rowlympic Games’. Although the official programming is yet to be revealed in the coming months, elrow can already say that the opening chapter of their adventure at Amnesia will be of epic proportions, now afforded by a name that guarantees the best of times and talent.
The Amnesia and Arnau families praised their new fellowship, commenting:
“After many years of friendship with the Amnesia family, elrow are very happy and excited about the most incredible club in the world and the most crazy and bizarre party of the moment coming together to create an explosive combination that will be unforgettable. We are going to make sure that the audience will relive the essence and the crazy spirit that has always represented the white island.”
“We both really wanted to work together, and Amnesia are so excited to see this year one of the best parties in the world in one of the most emblematic clubs of the island! We share the same passion, identity and above all the love for music! We cannot imagine a more perfect combination anywhere else.”
elrowFamily is the Arnau’s umbrella brand, owners of the Los Monegros festival and the legendary club Florida 135. A family that has been involved in the world of entertainment for more than a century and is now revolutionizing it with its latest project, elrow, a new concept of nightlife entertainment, in which the figure of the DJ as a celebrity and the importance of the line up are replaced by an essential and 100% immersive thematic show that mixes decoration, animation and theater with the best electronic music of the moment and where the participation of the audience is key.
