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. U.K.’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.

Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya is an idyllic, beautiful Mexican resort town, tucked into the coastline of the Mayan peninsula, 45 minutes south of the tourist haven Cancun. White sand beaches, turquoise waters, and plenty of sunshine are just steps away from the hot nightlife spots La Santanera and Blue Parrot Beach Club, where the Primavera Festival will be holding nightly parties. Meanwhile, daytime party spots Kool Beach Club and Canibal Royal Beach Club are located directly on the beach. The Primavera Festival takes place during Semana Santa, Mexico’s most important holiday season of the year, which runs from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. With everyone flocking to the beach during this popular holiday week, the festival is sure to be a spirited affair.
Although the Spanish Virgins lie just 6 miles from Puerto Rico and 15-20 miles from the U.S. Virgin Islands, they are far less crowded. Even though they’re part of the United States, they have none of the commercialism of the U.S. Virgin Islands, nor the crowds of charter boats that fight for moorings in the British Virgin Islands. For those who are looking for a boating vacation where gunk-holing is the order of the day and star-gazing de rigueur for the night, the Spanish Virgin Islands are perfect. Old hands describe them as “the BVIs 35 years ago.” Why are these islands still so pristine and unspoiled? Blame it on the Marines — and the U.S. Navy — they owned the islands for private operations until the mid-1970’s. It’s an easy flight to either San Juan Puerto Rico or St. Thomas, USVI, then on to the Spanish Virgin Islands! Read more… http://bit.ly/h1Jr9j
