Day of the Dead Festival

Wahaca presents Day of the Dead Festival co-produced by NOMAD and the Embassy of Mexico in the UK

Wed 31 Oct - Sat 3 Nov 2012

Wahaca is bringing Mexico’s vibrant Day of the Dead celebrations to London, for a four-day festival of music, food, art and film hosted at The Old Vic Tunnels.

Performing each night, on the first leg of their European tour will be this year’s Wilderness Festival headliners, Rodrigo y Gabriela with their unique instrumental blend of metal, jazz and world music. The tunnels will be transformed, with Wahaca’s very own temporary street kitchen and Mezcalaria bar, where bartenders will be serving cocktails made from award-winning Tequila, Olmeca Altos, along with an exhibition of work by highly acclaimed Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide, work by the eminent Mexican artist Dr Lakra and newly commissioned installations of visual arts by the London based Le Gun collective, British artist Hew Locke and Nancy Fouts.

In addition to the night time shows, during the daytime hours of Saturday 3 November, families are invited to attend an array of traditional Day of the Dead children’s workshops. Click here for more FAMILY DAY information.

Evening entrance from 7pm offers access to the visual arts show and the headline music concert Rodrigo y Gabriela, screening of Santa Sangre with performance of a new live score by the Cabinet of Living Cinema, a Mezcalería experience and more music, performance and late night revelry with Communion DJs. Evening tickets priced at £51 include food from Wahaca’s Street Kitchen and two Olmeca Altos cocktails.
