DJ and producer Damian Lazarus founded the estival Day Zero in 2012, inviting the electronic community to spiritually connect–described as a convergence of mysticism and music–and inviting Carl Craig, Nina Kraviz, and more, onto three stages in the ancient Mayan city of Tulum. In 2019 Lazarus expanded to include Day Zero Masada, an all-night experience overlooking the Dead Sea and the Jordanian Mountains with 15,000 attendees, including desert sculptures and other art installations, and another breathtaking musical experience of Lazarus’ occuring on historical land. Day Zero Masada: Dwellers of the Dead Sea returns on September 16th for its second year.
The line-up is yet to be announced, but Lazarus, his Crosstown Rebels team, and the Tripping Productions are committed to throwing a no-trace policy event that includes carbon emission-offsetting, sustainable event production, and a heavy emphasis on recycling and biodegradable materials. Day Zero Masada in 2019 became the first plastic-free event in Israel, and the 2022 event will be continuing those efforts as a strictly plastic-free music festival.
The sunrise-to-sunset festival’s return is highly anticipated, and according to Day Zero, festival-goers should be prepared for a celestial meeting of art, technology, and nature.
Early bird tickets of trust are available for purchase now at Day Zero Masada’s official site and stay tuned for the to-be announced line-up.
