The team behind the BPM Festival, Mexico’s biggest dance music party, is proud to present the first ever PRIMAVERA Festival in Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya, Mexico during the Semana Santa holiday week from April 21st – April 24th, 2011. The four-day festival includes night parties headlined by Lee Burridge, Sander Kleinenberg and Sasha, as well as free day parties at Kool Beach Club and Canibal Royal Beach Club.
The inaugural PRIMAVERA Festival will host several free daytime beach parties, as well as three night parties with some of the world’s top DJs to set it off. UK’s globetrotter Lee Burridge, titan of the former Tyrant parties at Fabric in London, has released highly acclaimed music on Global Underground, Cecille Records and Fabric Records, as well as his own Balance Series compilation. Fellow Brit Sasha is recognized as one of the world’s most innovative icons of electronic music, having constructed a number of forward-thinking concept albums, including the Grammy-nominated “Involver”, as well as inventive remixes for Depeche Mode, Madonna and Radiohead, just to name a few. And the flying Dutchman Sander Kleinenberg has built an international reputation on his versatility in mixing musical styles as well as integrating video imagery and other visuals into his masterful DJ sets, taking the dance music experience to a whole new level.
