The wonderfully theatrical Dance of the Dead is the greatest funeral party you’ll ever have the pleasure of attending. Just like they do down in old Mexico, you’ll be gathered to celebrate the departed in one spectacularly wild and vibrant fiesta!
Every song is from a deceased artist – as the DJs let loose some spine tingling remixes and rare bootlegs from the likes of MJ, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Nirvana, Amy Winehouse, T-Rex, Whitney Houston, Bob Marley, 2Pac, Queen, INXS, Rick James, Buddy Holly, Joy Division, Jimi Hendrix and James Brown; and in 2016 we will also be saluting Bowie and Prince just to name a few!
If that wasn’t enough thrills and spills already, then you can also select from our pool of cabaret acts, including Elvis Corpsley arriving in a white and silver studded coffin to take to the stage and perform a medley of his greatest hits along with much much more.
You’ll also find other shenanigans along the way like face painting stations, fiery latino comperes hosting party games such as: chilli eating competitions, tequila shots, mexican waves and of course the piñata smash-up, as well as some of London’s best cabaret performers embracing other ‘gone but not forgotten’ legends.
2015 saw Dance of the Dead throw parties at Mahiki, Queen of Hoxton, Shoreditch House and Besitval. Not to forget also making an appearance at Wahaca's Day of the Dead festival.
