If you’re looking for an excuse to hit Mexico, here it is. The countries biggest dance music festival is gearing up for its 5th anniversary in Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya. I haven’t been to the BPM festival, but I have been to the Riviera Maya and it’s pretty damn stunning. So if I were you, I’d mark your calendar: December 30, 2011 to January 8, 2012. You know what else is pretty dope? The fact that the whole thing coincides with the end of the Mayan calendar.

Last event drew 25,000 attendees and featured 120 of the planet’s top DJs and producers playing day and night for 240 sun-drenched, moon-dried hours in the beautiful Mexican Caribbean. White sand beaches, turquoise waters and top talents like Damian Lazarus, Dubfire, Laidback Luke, Lee Burridge, Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, Steve Angello and Steve Lawler (just to name a few) make the BPM Festival a perfect winter getaway in one of the most spectacular beach locations on the planet.

“When I first came here, I really noticed a very unique vibe and energy that has escalated every year. It’s become a really special place to come to in the winter time.” -Ali Shirazinia, aka Dubfire.

If you’re crazy excited about it already, there are a limited number of super special advance sale priced 10-Day VIP wristbands available.

Here’s a teaser video:

And here’s one of Dubfire chatting:
