Third line-up announcement coming soon!

New Zealand’s premiere three-day festival Rhythm & Vines returns bigger and better for 2009, promising an exciting, upbeat experience at the stunning Waiohika Estate in Gisborne. Just 10 minutes away from the city and surf, the idyllic vineyard venue is world class, with multiple acts performing over numerous stages throughout the three days.

Set on New Zealand's sunny East Coast, Gisborne and the surrounding areas lends itself to the ultimate holiday destination . The white sand inner city beaches team with surfers and sun seekers alike. Enjoy the local cuisine in one of the many harbourside eateries as the fishing boats roll in with their daily catch. Take a winery tour in famous Chardonnay country while basking in the summer sun.

Starting out in 2003 as a one-day party on December 31 organised by a group of friends, Rhythm & Vines has developed to a first-class three-day event running from 29 December to 1 January, expanding in size, playing host to over 25,000 people and boasting a top notch international and local artist line-up.

Rhythm & Vines guarantees a vibrant atmosphere full of people, culture, food, drinks and music, and is the first festival in the world to bring in the New Year, which is does so in style.

“Rhythm & Vines is more than just another New Years gig – it’s a full three day festival experience with a unique atmosphere in one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand,” comments Rhythm & Vines Programme Director Hamish Pinkham. “Whether you’re sampling the fine array of local cuisine, lying amongst the vines and enjoying the Gisborne sun or watching a world class artist performing on the Cellar stage, Rhythm & Vines has something for everyone.”
