Did someone say Halloween? Or Day of the Dead, maybe? Oh, hell yes! Following our Halloween House of Eccentricities in London, ICBRKR kept it weird all the way to Morelia, Mexico for a Día de los Muertos Experience with Mezcal Amores. The whole weekend was full of amazing events, including a cathedral light show with fireworks and a family-style picnic. But the ghouls come out at night… and on Friday from 930 - 1130PM, it was time for ICBRKR Presents: Dusk of the Day of the Dead featuring Parallells.

Que calor, lindos! Read on for our top ICBRKR Moments and pictures from the weekend. Thanks for being the best community a team could ask for. 💙

1. The setting was magical and fit the mood perfectly

On Friday night, our event took place in the picturesque town of Tzintzuntzan, just outside of Morelia. It was raining, but spirits were high and everyone kept dancing carefree in the rain.

2. The food was local, authentic, and of course, incredibly tasty

We served local, organic food prepared by Dona Rosalba Morales Bartolo. Dona is Purépecha, from San Jerónimo Purenchecuaro. She started formally cooking when she was 14, has traveled the world with her stone metate and vacuum-sealed ingredients, and has even been filmed by National Geographic. For our event, she prepared veggies from her backyard, meat marinated, cured and air dried from her roof, ceviche fished from the center of the local lake, and her famous pitayah sauce. Needless to say, we enjoyed every flavor!

3. Parallells lit up the dance floor with their live set

We’ve been onto Parallells since we first saw them at Burning Man 2018. This brothers duo from France, now based in Amsterdam, bring it every time and this night was no different. Julien played the sax and Thomas lent his vocals to their transportive set. We can’t wait to work with these guys again.

4. Everyone came in beautiful, magical character

On Saturday night, the party was held at a stunning private house in Morelia. The decoration was breathtaking and everyone showed up with their best Day of the Dead face paint. It’s something quite special when everyone’s in character…

5. Music, music, and more amazing music

The tunes throughout the weekend were honestly out of this world. Holger Hecler came in from Germany and Mateo both played a phenomenal live set. He typically composes all of his music, and his set fit perfectly into the Día de los Muertos spirit.

6. We got a stunning light show in Morelia’s downtown square

To conclude the festivities, we gathered in Morelia’s main square for a beautiful light show outside the Catedral de Morelia. What an experience! Is it too soon to count down to next Halloween and Día de los Muertos?
