To kick off the new year, I spent 10 days on the tropical beach side of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I was there for the 10 year anniversary of the BPM Festival, where 100’s of the most amazing dj’s in the industry come together. The techno fever was real! Thousands of people from all over the world attended the 10-day festivities, it was truly amazing. The fact that everyone spoke different languages, yet we all were there for one shared passion, the music.
The second night I was there, my friends and I attended a show in the biosphere reserves of Sian Ka’an in Tulum, Mexico. I have to say, this was by far my favorite night as I literally spent the early hours of the day dancing in the dark, under heavy, heavy rain to the tunes of Tale of Us. It was truly incredible 💛
Throughout the week I bumped into so many friends from back home, which was so awesome! We knocked back dozens of margaritas, danced on rooftops, 💃and met so many new people.
As I try to preserve all the positive memories from BPM, I do have to address the tragedy that took place on the final night of the festival in Playa. On Sunday, January 15 as event goers were celebrating the closing party at Blue Parrot Nightclub, gunmen opened fire. A confirmed 8 people lost their lives, and numerous injured. By the graces of God, my friends made it out of the club and grabbed me from my hotel. We didn’t know what was happening at that moment other than the fact that everyone was in danger, when all we were trying to do was celebrate the music. Bless the lives that were lost, and may the rest peacefully 💙
On a lighter note, I hope you enjoy some of the pieces I put together while I was there! I’ll be posting up some more pictures for you all!
