Introducing the Rio Revel…

Revel (verb):
1. To engage in mischievous festivities.
2. To indulge in extreme pleasure and delight.
3. Enjoying yourself in a lively way (especially with drinking & dancing).

The Rio Revel will be a marquee event at EMCPLAY running from 5pm – 3am at Manning Bar. Registration for pre-sale tickets open 9am (AEST) today, Thursday 6 September. General on-sale will commence 9am (AEST) Tuesday 11 September.


We couldn’t be more thrilled that The Rio Revel is happening on Saturday 17 November as a part of EMCPLAY’s new format. To have such legendary artists performing at an indoor/outdoor event on a summer afternoon and evening in Sydney is the perfect celebration of electronic music excellence. I know that I for one will be planting myself on that dancefloor at The Rio Revel!” EMC Executive Producer Jane Slingo said.


“We are backing it up from the ‘ultimate weekend away’ to throw an almighty shindig in the centre of Sydney. It will be a chance for music fans who missed the chance to catch extended sets from these legendary artists at Return to Rio experience a sprinkling of the magic at the Rio Revel. The Riopians will be out in force and with indoor and outdoor stages it’s primed to be one of the summer’s biggest electronic music extravaganzas.” Richard Cooper, Chief Mischief Maker, Return to Rio said.
