The BPM Festival Portugal 2017 Experience

The BPM Festival Portugal 2017 Experience

I had to sit for a few minutes to decide how exactly to preface this post in order to do-right-by the festival and decided there is no other way than to exclaim its name. Seriously, bravo The BPM Festival!

The electronic festival organization moved its 10 year long run from Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, to Portimao & Lagos, Portugal. There was much pause on whether it would uphold the status it has achieved in its Mexican home base, but it is without much hesitation that we put that claim to rest – 12,000 attendees and 90 countries in attendance, they have truly outdone themselves.

The journey started with an easy to access The BPM Festival check-in area. Here, space was practically walkable to any hotel, and once banded, just as quick a walk to 90% of the venues. All of the staff were exceptional in their speed, customer service and ultra accommodating, especially with all the vast language speakers in the area.

The one difference I would say that stood out the most from Playa was the mega-venues located in Portimao. These, mostly open-air spots were enormous, with state of the art sound and lighting, No Solo Agua and Blanco Beach; not to mention Cloque, Katedral, and Congressos were, for the most part, night venues, but still carried the theme of massive spaces and top notch quality.

The Portimao strip is an ideal location for The BPM Festival. It had a very similar feel to the Playa strip, and I can absolutely understand why this location was chosen for its succession. The entire strip is nestled atop 200+ foot cliffs which ride along the beach coast. As you walk along through this beautiful town, you hit bars, restaurants, clubs, casinos and even a strip club all scattered through little alleyways. It was a truly electrifying vibe, and new experience each night.

The BPM Festival was an experience to remember! Here are some original pictures our photographer from the events, brought to you by Mix247EDM!
