Australia’s ultimate pre-summer weekend getaway and fancy dress party Return to Rio recently announced the first wave of acts for their 2023 Halloween Weekender!

Taking place from 27 – 29 October 2023 at the Del Rio Resort, Wisemans Ferry, organisers have invited dance-pop legends Sneaky Sound System, disco and house maestro Late Nite Tuff Guy and other prolific names such as Nick Warren and Mark Farina.

In addition to the music — an eclectic mix of house, electronic, reggae, soul and funk — partygoers can expect spooky stilt walkers, a walking-dead mariachi band, eerie fortune tellers, haunted houses, horrifying drag shows, an all-new chillout and wellness space (‘The Sanctuary’), a Day of the Dead pool party and heaps more ‘’spooky surprises’’.
