Day of the Dead, also known as Día de los Muertos, is a Mexican holiday celebrating the lives of family and friends who have died. This was celebrated in Melbourne and Sydney on Halloween with a warehouse party across 2 levels in the city centre, aptly called Warehouse Project 3.1.
It was a creative spectacle that not only included DJs playing Mexican (downstairs) and dance (upstairs) music, but also live art installations, light projections and our favourite, amazing face painters who made sure attendees were in theme for the night.
Warehouse Project 3.1 was stocked well with food from Sydney restaurant Playa Takeria, Mexican cerveza and cocktails, with our favourite concoction being a Chambord-based cranberry cocktail.
Overall, it was an extremely well organised event. We loved the cool vibes earlier on in the night before we danced and enjoyed the music til the early morning (though we must admit we didn’t last all the way until 5am!).
