Bacardi Announces The Bacardi El Coco Tropical Danceteria Festival Tour

This Summer, Frank Booker (NZ), CLYPSO, Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Lady Erica, Amrita Hepi and more will lead a series of tropical day-to-night dance parties this festival season with two major parties in November.

This summer, the Bacardi El Coco Tropical Danceteria will be rolling into your favourite Australian festivals, hitting Return to Rio, Spilt Milk, Lost Paradise and Mountain Sounds with the taste, sight and sounds of the tropics.

Bacardi today announces the first list of artists due to grace the Bacardi El Coco stage, with performances from local and international acts including Frank Booker (NZ), Lady Erica, CLYPSO and the all-star El Coco House Band.

Offering an all-day party with sunset at its peak, expect non-stop good times on the Bacardi El Coco dancefloor with live disco, latin funk and hip-hop classics from the El Coco House Band, complementary dance classes from choreographer Amrita Hepi, and many more to-be-revealed surprises.

The Bacardi family have always known the right ingredients for a great party and the Bacardi El Coco tour, named after the symbolic coconut palm that helms the original Bacardi Distillery, continues this long-standing love affair with good music, great parties and even better drinks. Freshly made Bacardi mojitos will be hand-poured from a vintage 1950s chevy truck, converted into a first-of-its-kind rolling mojito bar, as our local and international guests transport festivalgoers to the Caribbean and back.

Bacardi El Coco will debut at Return to Rio from November 9 to November 11, for three days of tropicana-inspired dancing and mojitos beneath the palms of Wisemans Ferry Resort.

Bringing a seasoned tropical vibe straight to the nation’s capital on November 17, Bacardi El Coco will pop-up at Spilt Milk in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park. Quench your thirst with a delicious mojito made fresh from the fully equipped chev bar, before discovering your next signature move inspired by Amrita Hepi’s dance class. Put moves into practice with CLYPSO’s afropunk infused beats, hip-hop and reggae blends from DJs Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Jade Zoe, Ebony Boadu, Nes and Ayebatonye, and hit grooves from the El Coco House Band beneath the afternoon sun, alongside a surprise guest set to be announced.

Friday, November 9 – Monday, November 11
