Festival Preview: Wahaca’s Day Of The Dead Festival 2015

This November, Wahaca are bringing to London a 12 hour party celebrating the dead and the living, indulgence and debauchery, loud music, fine food and provocative debate, surrounded by beautiful art.

Here’s why we’re looking forward to it!

The music

Performing will be,

TicketWeb favourites, Crystal Fighters

The enthralling Savages

The always fantastic live, The Horrors

And loads more!

The food

Wahaca will be providing street food stalls at the event providing favourites from their bar and kitchens.


The art

Saatchi Gallery are will be showcasing their “Dead: A Celebration Of Mortality” exhibition, commenting on the subjects of death and mortality. There will also be street art from Mesical political muralists Lapiztola.

Lucha Libre

That’s right, there will be Mexican style masked wrestling. And not only can you watch, if you’re feeling up to it you can also take part!

You can get tattooed

There will be tattooists on site to give you a permanent reminder of the day. Probably best avoided if you’ve had too many margheritas.

The talks

A chance to delve into Mexico’s culture with speakers such as Camilo Lara, DBC Pierre and Diego Luna. A great opportunity to learn more about Mexican culture.

It’s for a good cause

10% of all food and drink sales will be donated to the charity Pereodistas de a Pie, in remembrance of the Mexican journalists who passed away while fighting for freedom of speech. More info HERE
