Day of the Died

The spirit of Mexico's most famous festivals, Day of the Dead, is set to descend on Glasgow's East End this Halloween!

Day of the Died

About Day of the Died

Following four sell out shows at venues across the city, the annual fiesta returns to Saint Luke’s with another piñata-packed night of live music, dance & theatre performances, Latin tunes, facepainting, lashings of tequila, cocktails and Mexican street food.

Rapido Mariachi, Scotland’s best loved sombrero-topped four-piece, famed for their Barrowlands appearance with Canadian art rockers Arcade Fire, will take to the stage to perform their danceable, alternative pop twist on the mariachi tradition.

Transporting the fiesta to Mexico City and beyond will be resident BALKANARAMA DJ Ewan Evans, aka, Señor Poco Loco, spinning an exotic mix of heavy Latin rhythms, classic tunes, and tropical disco.

Face painters will be on hand throughout the night to metamorphosize partygoers into sugar skulls.

Día de los Muertos attire is strongly encouraged – come dressed in your finest Calaca apparel!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Day of the Died are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
