Day Zero Festival 2012

THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD. THIS IS A NEW BEGINNING. THIS IS DAY ZERO.

The Basics

20-21 December 2012
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

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, Festicket have packages to Mexico. They include DAY ZERO festival, presenting 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.

This is a time for transformation and renewal, a time for change - celebrate with us as we party and await the future!

Festicket is the official UK travel partner of Day Zero.
