Nestled amongst the rolling hills and the vines of picturesque Waiohika Estate, Gisborne, Rhythm & Vines is the first place in the world to see the sun rise and the finest location in the land for a party.

Now in its eight year, Rhythm & Vines is New Zealand’s biggest and best New Years Eve festival, with a killer three-day line up for 2010.

Headlining in 2010 are international heavyweights N*E*R*D and Justice (DJ set), with other internationals Carl Cox, Chase and Status (DJ set), Chromeo, Boys Noize, Erol Alkan, Netsky, Mystery Jets, High Contrast, Tinie Tempah and Miami Horror.

Local superstars Shihad head a stellar local line-up including Hollie Smith, BARB, Bulletproof, P Money, Electric Wire Hustle, Mt Eden Dubstep, Dick Johnson, Optimus Gryme and Our:House Presents.

Tickets to Rhythm & Vines are on sale through, Ticketek and Real Groovy.

Various ticket and accommodation options are available with the line-up only part of the experience.

Set in the vines onsite at Waiohika Estate, R&V Onsite Camping is a premium R20 camping experience right next to the Festival action enjoyed by around 2,000 campers.

A festival in its own right, BW Campgrounds on Waikanae Beach offers its 10,000 R18 campers daytime activities such as wakeboarding and bikini competitions, and its own stellar line-up of international and local artists.

This year’s BW line-up includes legendary UK dance act The Freestylers and local acts Kora, The Black Seeds, Sola Rosa, The Checks, P-Money, State of Mind (Live), The Upbeats, Mt Eden Dub Step and High Contrast, with more to be announced.

For those who prefer a little luxury, there are hotel and holiday homes options available via our accommodation partner Posh and Pooh. All accommodation options fill up fast, so go to for more information and get in quick to secure your choice.

Still on the luxury theme, the VIP Lounge Experience is back after last year’s resounding success. With limited tickets available, lucky VIP ticket holders get to rub shoulders with artists, media and other VIPs in a separate area overlooking the main stage with its own luxury toilets, bar and food stands. Sounds pretty good huh?

Get your ticket, book your accommodation and tell your friends, and stay tuned for more awesome artists in our second line-up announcement in October!
