Return To Rio announce The Martinez Brothers as their first headliner for 2019’s festival

With Return To Rio set to kick off the Hawkesbury River’s biggest party this November 8-10, the busy bees have been hard at work squaring away this year’s monstrous lineup. But to tide us over until the big announce, they’ve given us news of the first headliner.

Puerto Rican house lords The Martinez Brothers will be heading to Aussie shores following a five-year hiatus.

The duo are arguably veterans, first hitting the road at the ripe old ages of 15 and 17. They’re now regulars at clubs across the world like Circo Loco at DC10 in Ibiza, London’s FabricSpace in Miami, Burning Man and heaps more.

Of their spot on the Return To Rio lineup, the brothers said: “We’ve heard so many great things about Return to Rio – the crazy costumes and all-round good vibes. It’s been a while since we’ve been to Australia and we’re hyped to come back.”

Previous years of RTR have featured the likes of Carl CoxSashaDixonLee Burridge and more, so this year’s event is set to be a big one.

Due to popularity, tickets for the party will be on sale May 7 via a ballot system, with pre-sale tickets costing you $250. To get in on the ballot, register your interest here.
