RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – This Saturday, December 15th, award-winning Welsh DJ and producer Jamie Jones will be headlining the first party thrown by new festival organizers Plush. The party will take place at the Armazém da Utopia in Rio’s recently renovated Porto Maravilha region.
Jones has previously visited Brazil back in 2012 with his electronic outfit ‘Hot Natured,’ and now he is returning to the Cidade Maravilhosa as part of a huge party featuring other big names of the Brazilian electronic music scene, including Milena Scheide, Croma, and Rara Djs.
“I’ve been in Brazil about 3 times and people are very musically educated. It’s a beautiful country, too.” He commented when talking to da House Mag back in 2012. Jones caught the attention of many electronic music fans when he was voted the number one DJ by Resident Advisor in 2011, and he’s been busy since. He has founded one of the most in-demand club nights in the world with ‘Paradise’ in Ibiza, and has headlined music festivals such as Burning Man and Coachella.
When asked about his biggest attraction to Rio by Time Out Magazine, Jones says, “I like the energy – it’s like a postcard, like what you’ve always seen in the movies, so it’s nice just to sit back and take it all in.”
