RIGHTEOUS RAINBOWS OF TOGETHERNESS (LIVE)
The Righteous Rainbows of Togetherness are a live techno act that defies explanation. These two intergalactic wizards weave bass, beats and melodies that inspire carbon lifeforms to shake. The live show is dominated by colourful dance troops and a feeling of inclusion that makes all feel welcome and uninhibited to get loose. The underground duo have performed together for over a decade, including notable appearances at Bass Coast and Rifflandia.
