The All Souls Procession is perhaps one of the most important, inclusive and authentic public ceremonies in North America today, gathering well over 150,000 participants on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long human-powered procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes of the public for those who have passed.
Myriad altars, performers, installation art, and creatives of all kinds collaborate for almost half the year to prepare their offerings for this amazing event. The All Souls Procession, and now the entire All Souls Weekend, is a celebration and mourning of the lives of our loved ones and ancestors.
On Saturday the 2nd, Steve will be featured as a headlining artist at Night of the Living Fest at the MSA Annex, with a special two-hour set and album release party. Tickets are now on-sale.
On Sunday the 3rd, Steve has created an amazing, bespoke soundscape for the finale of this 30th Annual Ceremony, which is free to attend.
