Having first held the event on the final day of the Mayan calendar, December 21, 2012, Day Zero has come to represent a turning point in the world of dance music; a new beginning of sorts.
Each iteration of the event launches the new year with a stellar lineup of talent. In the past stalwart selectors including Dixon, Thievery Corporation, Fur Coat, and Mathew Jonson have made appearances, but the magic of Day Zero goes much further than a lineup.
The jungle setting offers a unique type of energy which reminds attendees that these gatherings have roots in the beginnings of human kind. Civilizations as ancient as the Mayans would come together and dance long into the night, celebrating the world’s natural splendor. As dance music events become synonymous with commercialization, Damian Lazarus invites party-goers from around the world to experience that same communal spirit through Day Zero.
Day Zero 2019 will take place in Dos Osos, Tulum on January 11. Tickets of trust will be on sale September 5th, with general on-sale following the lineup announcement shortly after.
