Something has been stirring in the jungles of Mexico. It's a mystical one-day gathering in Ak Tun Ak, near the ruins of Tulúm, that's been rumbling through the tree branches for the past four years; the immersive journey into Mexican and Mayan culture known as Day Zero blends traditional Mayan ceremonies, local performers, arts, the lush magic of the Mayan Riviera, top house and techno talent, and the support of Damian Lazarus’s Crosstown Rebels to guide attendees' through 24 hours of cultural, musical and self exploration in the jungle.
Day Zero, as always, encouraged attendees to go deep within and find their true selves. As guests wandered through jungle paths illuminated by signs asking “How Can I Make a Difference?” or “What Do I Really Want?” or explored cenotes and hidden caves adorned with “Get Lost” signs in bright neon, or got lost in Mayan acrobatic performances, it was clear the fest wanted to challenge personally everyone to find their true intentions, and encourage attendees to tap into personal growth, social responsibility, and creative expression. The interplay of humidity at Day Zero not only created a steamy jungle dance party but also allowed for lasers to shine brighter to create a vibe often only found in underground warehouses.
