The Celebration Returns to the Ancient Lands of Israel September 9 and 10, 2021
Day Zero has been synonymous with new beginnings since its storied inception in Mexico’s Mayan jungles in 2012. Since then it has gone on to become one of the world’s most heralded events, combining incredible physical locations, groundbreaking production and world class musical performances—anchored by its founder, Damian Lazarus.
In 2021 as we emerge into a new era, Lazarus will return Day Zero to the Dead Sea and the historical and ancient mountain of Masada for an event like no other. Expanding to two nights, and adding an intimate desert inspired tent stage, revelers will come together, dance under starry night skies and observe the sunrise over Biblical mountains and the Dead Sea. Day Zero will again deliver a once in a lifetime chance to celebrate a new beginning.
It is with the soundtracking of this new chapter of humanity in mind that Lazarus has charted the event’s two day journey through the outer edges of global dance culture. Heroic DJ sets and mind-bending live performances will continue to push the Day Zero sonic ethos forward in one of the world’s most beautiful locales. Damian will be joined by the scene’s biggest players like Belgian techno impresario Charlotte de Witte, the illustrious Luciano, All Day I Dream icon Lee Burridge, and Life and Death’s DJ Tennis together with Carlita, Detroit’s next generation leader DJ Holographic, and Spanish house maestro Dennis Cruz. Progressive icons Sasha and Nick Warren will also make their Day Zero debuts.
Of course Day Zero favorites will make their much anticipated return to the fold, with standout performances from DJ Three, Francesca Lomabardo, Audiofly, Serge Devant, Chaim, Goldcap, and Nico Stojan, plus Diplo’s Day Zero debut following his stateside co-release of Damian’s ‘Flourish’ LP on his upstart Higher Ground imprint.
Live electronic exploration will also be on full display at Masada, featuring the likes of new age electronic giant Jan Blomqvist, jazz inspired Dutch brother duo Parallels, and newcomer Miraclis who is set to showcase music from his debut album expected on an exciting new sublabel from Crosstown Rebels.
The Mountain of Masada is one of Israel’s most storied historical locations, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, that sits on the shores of the Dead Sea and traces its origins to 30BC. Witnessing the sun rise over Jordanian Mountains and spill across the Dead Sea, illuminating the mountain is a truly powerful party experience.
The Day Zero mission remains clear and consistent: to produce the world’s most celebrated festival in sought after locations of sheer natural wonder. It is with an elevated understanding of total rave immersion that Damian and his renowned team of producers, performers and artists push into the next chapter. Crosstown Rebels will once again team up with Trippin Productions to create an event at the confluence of nature, artistry, and technology for the ages.
