Get into the festival spirit with this immersive celebration of the departed, featuring live bands, DJs, Mexican street food, art and more, all over three in Waterloo’s underground Vaults.

Running from 2 - 4 Nov.

Inspired by the traditional Día de los Muertos celebrated across Mexico, our festival will encompass different aspects of Day of The Dead - from rituals and prayer to dance and theatrics, plus yummy stuff from authentic Mexican foodies Wahaca - all brought together in our underground tunnels.

There will be live music, Mexican performers and art, and hands on experiences for revellers to enjoy. The festival’s labyrinth of tunnels will play host to a Mayan jungle and a re-creation of the Cemetery Panteon General in Oaxaca, with performances of poetry and songs where guests will be encouraged to pay their respects to the loved ones they’ve lost. Understand your soul by exploring your Mayan reincarnation, or if you're brave enough visit La Llorona for a fortune.

And once you're ready to celebrate those gone by with your best dancing shoes, music will be curated by Movimientos, with DJs playing late into the night.

You can also come along with your little ones to enjoy arts, crafts and Mexican movies at Wahaca's Family Day on Saturday 4th November 1pm - 5pm.
