Crosstown Rebels presents Day Zero at the pyramids of Playa del Carmen

There’s no doubt about the devotion of Damian Lazarus by Mexico and the whole issue of the Mayan ruins. That’s why next 11 January 2014 he’s back to the pyramids in the jungle of Playa del Carmen. In collaboration with Secret Productions, Crosstown Rebels presents Day Zero, with a line-up of exception:

Acid Pauli, Damian Lazarus, Francesca Lombardo (live), Fur Coat, Infinity Ink (live), Mathew Jonson (live), Magda, Metrika (live), Simian Mobile Disco, Thievery Corporation (live), Tiga, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Having made waves in the past 2 years as the newest star in the Crosstown Rebels galaxy, classically trained musician, DJ and producer, Francesca Lombardo will be playing her first ever live festival performance, a show that has captured people’s hearts since being exclusively aired on the Boiler Room last month.

Playing live at the event will be Grammy nominated and electronic superstars Thievery Corporation who will play their first ever live set in Playa del Carmen at Day Zero. Fusing dub, bossa nova and jazz with cool electronica and a punk attitude, their carnival-esque live performances are second to none.

After bringing his set from last year’s festival to a dramatic close with Phil Collins’ In the air tonight, Crosstown Rebels founder and the man that made Day Zero a reality, Damian Lazarus, will return with a typically creative, energetic and rebellious approach to electronic bliss as he takes on the sunrise session.

Damian said: Last year we created an event that felt so special and so right. The planets literally aligned to help us create a magical spectacle that we assumed would be a one off event but after much reflection and much soul searching, we decided that we would come again and build on what we started.
