Day Zero’s Lineup Emerges for January 13 in The Jungle of Tulum.
Featuring Âme, Bedouin, Damian Lazarus, Dinky, Dixon, DJ Three, Lum, Mathew Jonson, Metrika, Satori, Serge Devant, and Very Special Back to Back Sets.
A convergence of mysticism, music, natural wonder and apocalyptic sentiment spawned Day Zero on the final day of the Ancient Mayan Calendar in 2012. In its subsequent four chapters, it has evolved, awakening a community of curious thrill seekers and adventurers from all four corners of the globe, pulled to the Mayan jungles surrounding Tulum to celebrate the magic of one of the world’s singular events, soundtracked by some of its most exciting artists.
Day Zero has come to reflect the seamless ebb and flow of its jungle habitat, a sacred space where the sonic tools of the ancient world meet that of the new. As the event takes in sunrises and sunsets and deep late moments, one can’t help but feel the venue’s profound energy spilling forth from its caves, cenotes, and naturally formed amphitheater. It is the unparalleled vibe of this unique location, paired with Damian Lazarus musical curation, that has created a unique infusion from which the world’s best electronic music can be properly experienced in mind, body and spirit.
2016 saw the event hit full stride as it welcomed Cirque Du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte’s Red Moon to the fold, as the curator of some of the planet’s most unique and immersive environments and otherworldly performances. It was this year that Billboard Magazine reflected that Day Zero could go down in ‘party history.’
2017 will welcome a finely tuned cast of musical visionaries as Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels continues its 14 year triumph as one of the most boundary pushing names in modern dance music. Joining Lazarus in 2017 will be Crosstown cohorts like Dinky, DJ Three, Serge Devant, Mathew Johnson, and Metrika, as well as representatives from other like minded global crews such as Innervisions Âme and Dixon.
Day Zero has fostered a means for introspection through a reimagination of modern-rave and a chance for its unique community to reconnect and reawaken for the year to come.
