Return to Rio drops lineup for rescheduled Halloween weekender in 2022

Return to Rio drops lineup for rescheduled Halloween weekender in 2022

Organisers of Return to Rio have announced an impressive all-Aussie lineup for February 2022. The fancy dress party was originally scheduled for Halloween later this month.

Sticking with the same spooky theme next February, the Rio crew have assembled some of the biggest and best names in dance and electronic music. The list consists of Australia’s dance-pop legends Sneaky Sound System, disco and house maestro Late Nite Tuff Guy and prolific DJ/producer Dirty South to name just a few.

Return to Rio’s Ricky Cooper said: “With two years off thanks to COVID, we’re back in Feb for a Rio reunion like no other. We’ve had plenty of time to put some serious love into this one, so it’s going to be extra spooktacular. After the years we’ve all had, it’s extra important to spread happiness around.’’

As far as post-lockdown celebrations go, Return To Rio 2022 is going to be a cracker!
