The BPM Festival Portugal 2017: What to Expect
In a world where new music festivals seem to sprout out of the woodwork on the daily, The BPM Festival has been able to uphold a standard of quality for over a decade. The BPM Festival was originally created for the true lovers and creators within the industry. The abbreviation got its’ name from the audience they wanted to target, Bartenders, Promoters, Musicians. Of course, it’s difficult to keep such a unique and spiritual experience a best kept secret. It only took some time before The BPM Festival became as familiar and synonymous as names such as Timewarp, Hyte and Movement; with that, it is launching its first ever production outside its normal Playa del Carmen grounds – and into Portimao in south Portugal. So, what can we expect? Will this new location uphold the reputation of its’ predecessor?
The news of branching out The BPM Festival brand to other locations came early in the year right before their 10 year anniversary in Playa del Carmen. The decision must have been difficult with much time dedicated to research and comparisons, and after reading this article, you will understand how Portimao is a stand-up choice. Castles along the coastline of the beach, hidden caves and beaches, glass elevators descending to beaches and escalators etched into sides of cliffs, the freedom to do and be who you want combined with one of the safest countries in the world – it is no wonder to see how the magical experience can flourish in this environment.
To those who have been to The BPM Festival in Playa, I know there is a subject area top of mind: the food. I want to be the one to put your mind at ease. Being an attendee myself for Playa, I will be the first to say how phenomenal the quality and pricing of the food was in Mexico. This will be met with the same expectations in Portimao. Get ready to enjoy yourself some traditional fresh bacalhao (codfish) and polvo (octopus) most likely drizzled in olive oil, accompanied by a pastel de nata for dessert(an original flaky Portuguese treat). Simply put, if you loved the meals in Playa – you will be blown away by the selection in Portugal.
Last but not surely not least, the class act line-up. We all assumed that The BPM Festival would be busting out all the top contenders for their first year outside of their regular domain, but since its release that would be an understatement. Art Department, Chris Leibing, Chus & Ceballos, De La Swing, Dubfire, Eats Everything, Jamie Jones, Josh Wink, Latmun, Lee Burridge, Loco Dice, Nicole Moudaber, Pan Pot, Sam Paganini, Seth Troxler and Stefano Noferini are just a FEW of the names on the super stacked lineup ready to take over the city of Portimao.
See you all there!
