Rainbow Disco Club celebrates 15th anniversary with exclusive event in Naarm

In the world of electronic music festivals, few command as much reverence and anticipation as Rainbow Disco Club (RDC). Having resurfaced last year after pandemic-related restrictions, the illustrious Japanese festival is set to mark its 15th year with an exclusive showcase in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia, as a collaboration between Japan’s RDC crew, Translate Events and Tours and Naarm-based Tangle Agency.

Scheduled for Friday, March 1, 2024, Bourke Street Courtyard in Melbourne will host an exciting line-up of names for the plenty of electronic music aficionados of the city.

When asked about the special connection RDC has with the city of Naarm, organisers revealed that both are intertwined not only through music but also through the cultural reflection that both share; “RDC is also art-based, which Naarm prides itself on too.”

The process of curating the line-up for the event was nothing short of a collaborative effort. "We worked closely with the RDC crew in Japan with lots of back-and-forth messages to eventually produce a line-up we are very proud of,” mentions Mitchell Gee of Tangle Agency.

From beloved festival fixtures such as Sisi and Kikiorix to the exclusive Australian appearance of Danilo Plessow aka Motor City Drum Ensemble (MCDE), the selection reflects meticulous curation and choices, which also includes Aldonna, DJ JNETT, Kabuto, Moopie, Sophie McAlister, and Tornado Wallace, with additional acts yet to be announced.

The success of RDC lies in its ability to not only entertain its attendees but also “educate its punters over the years by bringing the best disco and house artists from across the world every year and still being able to produce fresh and innovative line-ups,” organisers add. By doing so, the festival has been able to maintain high anticipation and excitement for its events.

This year’s main Rainbow Disco Club event in April has been announced to take place once again at the Higashi-Izu Cross Country Course in Japan, inviting over Four Tet, Mr Ho, HAAi, Hessle Audio, Tim Reaper and more.
