On January 10 of 2015, Playa del Carmen was once again witness of Crosstown Rebels’ infamous tradition, Day Zero festival. On this fifth consecutive edition, Damian Lazarus along with a rather stellar lineup took over a new patch of land to thousands of rebels for nearly 24 hours. One main concern was the weather, which is unpredictable on these parts. I literally just fell some drops come down during Francesca Lombardo’s set the morning after and nothing more, but when I drove into Playa del Carmen at 11:30 am, my car was swimming down the streets to a torrential downpoor that would most definitely have put a stop to the festival. The lords listened, the skies opened, and we rejoiced.
