It's mid-year and everyone is chomping at the bit to sink their teeth into one massively mammoth music festival to warm our winter blues, and thank the mighty music heavens above we have just been blessed with the line-up for one of the best shindigs in Sydney!
Return To Rio is hitting the Hawkesbury this November 11-13 to deliver us the ultimate weekend escape at Wisemans Ferry, packed with music, partying, dancing and everything you could hope for.
None other than Carl Cox, one of the world's best and most respected DJs, will be headlining the festival with his partner in crime Eric Powell, to rock the crowds with their 10 hour Mobile Disco set. They are absolutely going to dominate the Del Rio location!
You're going to be treated to the old and new, from disco, jazz-fun, soul and classic house track, to anything they think will get your blood pumping - and there's no doubt about it!
Carl's already spoken out about his Return To Rio debut, saying, " “12 hours - oh yes, oh yes! I can’t wait to hit the Hawkesbury for Return to Rio as I’ve heard lots of great things about this very special event. It’s about time I experienced some of the Rio magic myself…”
So who else an you expect to send you into a trance over the weekend?
Well, Grammy-Award winning De La Soul will be giving an unforgettable live performance, DJ EZ will bring down Rio with garage vibe old skool tracks; international DJ and Rio pro MR C Superfreq will be back in town; as well as global heavyweights LTJ Bukem, Atish, Super FLu, YokoO and MORE set to bring ther A game... A whole string of impressive talent is yet to be announced, so keep your ears and eyes on standby!
Promoter Ricky Cooper commented on this years shows, revealing, “We’re pulling out all the stops this November as this will be our one and only three-day spectacular for the next 12 months. I’m off to get hitched to my beautiful fiancé in March and need to plough all my time and creative juices in to our celebration of love!”
If you're keen for some seriously great sounds, decked out installations and sets, mind-blowingly good sound systems, a chill AF waterside location (where you can water ski, golf, play all your fave sports), delicious drinks, drive-up camping spots for you and your mates (or luxurious accommodation options), and glorious food to chow down on, then jump to it and get your tickets ASAP HERE.
If you want in on the fun before November, then head to their launch party on August 20 at Manning Bar, and witness M.A.N.D.Y. taking to the stage for a not to be missed five hour set...
Let's Return To Rio, folks. You're NOT going to want to miss this.
