Wahaca is bringing Mexico's Day of the Dead celebrations to Waterloo with a four-day festival of music, food, art and film.

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.

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.
