On December 21st, at 18:11, the fifth and final cycle of the Mayan world cycle will end. At this moment a galactic alignment will occur: for the first time in 25,625 years Planet Earth will line up with the center of the Milky Way.
To mark this momentous occasion, DAY ZERO festival presents 24 hours of music, performing arts, installations, and spiritual teachings. This once in a lifetime event, by a Mayan pyramid in Playa Del Carmen, will bring together party people for 24 hours, ending at the exact moment the Mayans decreed as the end of this world cycle.
Day Zero offers a forward thinking line up of house and techno acts including Damian Lazarus, Fur Coat, Infinity Ink, Art Department, Subb-An and many more besides. The spirit of the Mayans will represented through dance-performances and Shamanic rituals during the festival, and there will be discussion, yoga, relaxation and spiritual awareness classes to help you forget your real world troubles.

3D (Massive Attack) vs James Lavelle (UNKLE)
As part of Massive Attack, 3D has been central to the Bristol trip-hop scene since the early 1990s, returning most recently with 2010’s Heligoland; as a solo artist he has worked on a film soundtrack for 2008’s Gomorrah, as well as providing vocals on two of Lavelle’s UNKLE releases. James Lavelle meanwhile set up the Oxford-based Mo’Wax label straight from school in the early 1990s, releasing DJ Shadow’s seminal Endtroducing… album, and working with Shadow as UNKLE. He’s been a constant presence at fabric – opening their fabriclive mix series – and recently launched the Daydreaming with… project, combining music with visual arts. Their performance at DAY ZERO will include re-edits of Massive Attack hits, cmbined with a visual show.
Jamie Jones has carefully crafted his own unique brand of creamy, sultry house and disco on labels like Crosstown Rebels and his own Hot Creations; he has gone on to introduce the world to plenty more like-minded artists through his labels, also finding time to mix it up for fabric in 2011. This summer saw the release of his next hotly anticipated full-length album, again on Crosstown Rebels, whilst his own Paradise events on Ibiza this year have been a talking point for most,
Subb-An has toured the globe taking his jacking house and tech sounds to places like Mexico, BPM, WMC and so many more clubs and festivals, at the same time as running his own well respected One Records imprint, and releasing on labels like Spectral, Saved and My Favourite Robot.
