After a two year hiatus, Festival of the Dead is returning to Glasgow for Halloween as part of their UK tour. 

The O2 Academy in the Gorbals area of Glasgow will play host to the festival, known for its skeleton face paint and carnival costumes inspired by the Mexican festival Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead).
