BPM – Safe Return and Condolences

An update to say 2017 BPM festival was a fantastic event for Amplified Radio, but the tragic events at the closing parties put a huge dark spot on the week.  We are safe and home but are a little spooked being exactly at the spot about 30 hours before a deadly shooting took the lives of 5 people and injured another 15 (as of 5pm on Jan 16th 201).  Our hearts go out to all those impacted.

I can say with true honesty I felt very safe in the city, and the people of Playa Del Carmen and Mexico are some of the hardest working and most hospitable people I have ever met.   Drugs kill so many people, in so many ways.

We will be posting photos, interviews and sets shortly, but send out our deepest sympathy to those who were lost and impacted by this tragic event.
