5 People Reportedly Killed In Shooting At Mexico’s BPM Dance Music Festival

Eyewitnesses report as many as five people have been shot dead at a BPM Festival event in Mexico.

Attendees and artists at the electronic music fest’s closing event, held at the Blue Parrot venue in Playa Del Carmen, say a gunman opened fire on a crowd of revelers during a set.

In tweets (which have now been deleted), festival organisers urged punters to stay away from the area while police investigate the matter.

BPM Festival is a ten day-long event, billing itself as a “global gathering of DJs, producers, revelers and industry professionals.”
