Bursting with live music, dance performers, face-painters and Latin tunes, organisers are promising a Glasgow twist on some traditional Mexican rituals.
The event, at the SWG3 Studio Warehouse promises an alternative Hallowe'en party hotter than a jalapeño pepper.
It will feature a performance by Rapido Mariachi, a Scots four-piece who add their own unique twist to traditional Mexican music.
Glasgow's Femme Fetale dancers, who recently wowed crowds at T in the Park, will bring their kitsch, sultry take on Mexican folk dance to the fiesta.
Transporting the party to Mexico City and beyond will be the Subcity Radio DJs, and Glasgow indie floor fillers, Cancoes Do Sol and Tigerbeat, who'll bring their exotic mix of Latin, Central and South American sounds to the dancefloor.
Recreating the carnivalesque spirit of the festival, facepainters will be on hand to metamorphosize partygoers into the 'alavera skulls', universally associated with the festival.
A spokesman for the organisers said: "Day of the Dead Glesga coincides with the real annual celebration which takes place throughout Mexico on November 1 and 2, where the living remember the deceased.
"With a belief system inherited from the Aztecs, Mexicans believe that at this time of year the spirits of the dead are free to return home from the afterlife.
"To welcome the dead, families erect alters and lay out offerings of colourful candles and yellow marigolds as well as their relatives' favourite food and drink, including mescal and tequila.
"Although Day of the Dead has a serious meaning, the festival is famously characterised by its humour and is renowned for adopting an optimistic outlook on life and death."
The festival takes place at SWG3, Eastvale Place, on Saturday November 2. Tickets £10.
