Every year, Damian Lazarus and the versatile team behind Day Zero Tulum embark on a mission to create the most extraordinary party on the planet. Nestled amid the ancient traditions of the Mayan civilization and a contemporary embrace of hedonism, this festival stands as the pinnacle of what a rave can encompass. On January 12, Day Zero is set to return to the enchanting jungles of Tulum, defying all expectations.
Traversing realms both physical and spiritual, Day Zero beckons revelers on an immersive odyssey through the avant-garde. It weaves together ancient Mayan rituals and performances by local guides with mind-altering production technology, all within the lush jungle setting, creating a fusion of the modern and the mythical.
Demonstrating the remarkable curatorial vision of founder Damian Lazarus, Day Zero’s sonic landscape stretches from sunset to sunrise, animated by groundbreaking live acts and selectors. The lineup boasts regional premieres and Tulum-exclusive performances from artists who reside at the vanguard of the dancefloor experience. A convergence of the global underground elite, visionary Mexican talents, and emerging artists from the Crosstown universe promises a journey found nowhere else, both in Tulum and beyond.
Echoing the Mayan reverence for the Earth and its resources, Day Zero embodies a profound appreciation for the natural world and remains unwavering in its commitment to environmental preservation through the Crosstown Consciousness initiative. The festival partners with Mexican company Petgas to convert production waste into fuel that powers the event, while its recycling initiatives set new benchmarks for environmentally responsible event management within the region.
Day Zero 2024 follows the monumental 20th-anniversary celebrations of Crosstown Rebels. These celebrations included the CR20 World Tour, an 8-track compilation, and a captivating 240-page coffee table book. Shaping the electronic music landscape for over two decades, Crosstown Rebels continues to be an influential tastemaker, consistently unearthing emerging sounds and launching global stars like Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, and Art Department. With globally renowned events like Get Lost and the pioneering Rebel Rave series, alongside the iconic Day Zero, Crosstown Rebels’ presence is woven into the very fabric of the underground party culture.
At its core, Day Zero is a profound exploration of the interplay between musical connection, the natural world, and cultural reverence. The mystique that has consistently made Day Zero an unparalleled marvel on the global party circuit is crafted through a blend of artistic expression and a deep respect for tradition. Once more, Lazarus calls upon those seeking to carve a fresh path in the new year to leave their collective mark amidst this extraordinary celebration of creativity.
