Famous for being one of the longest electronic music festivals all over the globe, BPM sees a vast and eclectic expanse of musicians every year. Check out some of the pictorial highlights from this year’s edition of the festival below!

Since the past eight years, BPM Festival has put Mexico on the map like no other music festival has. It emerged, seemingly out of nowhere, and took over the world of dance music with a massive bevy of international electronic acts over the span of ten days every year. As the 2016 edition of the festival comes to an end, The Sherp is here to give you a glimpse of what went down at the festival.
