RHYTHM & VINES BRINGS GLASTONBURY TO 2014 FESTIVAL



Rhythm and Vines is excited to announce it will be adding a little slice of Glastonbury to the 2014 festival with the inclusion of the Arcadia Afterburner.

The Arcadia Afterburner stage has been a regular feature at Glastonbury Festival, and now Rhythm and Vines is bring it to New Zealand’s biggest New Year’s Eve party in Gisborne.

New Zealand fans of Glastonbury no longer have to look on with envy as UK festival-goers descend on Worthy Farm for the weekend of their lives.

Rhythm and Vines will continue it’s pedigree of bringing the world’s hottest acts to the festival and is set to become a party destination yet again for the electronic dance music crowd who descend on Gisborne every year. The Arcadia Afterburner will house some of these DJ’s until the early hours of 2015. Previous artist highlights at Rhythm and Vines include Disclosure, Netsky, Wilkinson and Flying Lotus. This year will be no different with some of the world’s best electronic dance acts booked to play. More on what international DJ’s will be playing the Afterburner structure will be revealed during the first line up announcement.

Custom made and originally born out of a cowshed in Dorset, the Arcadia Afterburner fuses elements of sculpture, architecture, fire, music and lighting to build a multi sensory experience.

The unique stage will house a 4000 strong dance floor, with a DJ booth at the core of the structure, a towering spire that fires 30 foot flames into the air, flaming tree sculptures, and a barrage of light and visuals that shoot out across the crowd in synchronization. Surrounded by a heavyweight sound system, the spiraling arms of the Afterburner reach into the crowd creating multi level dance platforms along them.

This is the first time the Arcadia Afterburner has been to these shores and is like no other DJ stage seen in New Zealand before.

Bastille are coming to R&V 2014!

The Edge is once again presenting Rhythm and Vines 2014 and we're very excited to announce the first headliners for 2014... Bastille!

London-based Bastille have had a meteoric rise to fame since their March 2013 debut album Bad Blood entered the number one spot in the UK charts and achieved platinum status. It started in 2011 when they pressed only 300 copies of their debut single ‘Flaws’ and shortly afterwards the accompanying video scored half a million hits on You Tube. Virgin Records quickly signed them, and after only three singles they were selling-out their first headline UK tour before their album was even released.

Their anthemic fourth single ‘Pompeii’ charted at number two in the UK charts and went on to become the second most streamed track of 2013, just behind Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’, and so far holds the record as the song to spend the most number of weeks at number one on the Official Streaming Chart. Their triumphant 2013 ended with another number two UK hit single, ‘Of The Night.’

Their phenomenal success has continued into 2014 and has seen them nominated for four BRIT Awards (British Breakthrough Act, British Group, British Album, Best Single for ‘Pompeii’). The band have recently been touring America and playing festivals such as Coachella and The Governors Ball in New York before touring Australia.

Bastille’s appearance at Rhythm and Vines and Rhythm and Alps will be their first ever NZ shows.

Lead singer of Bastille, Dan Smith says “We are massively excited about heading to New Zealand for the first time in our lives and that we get to come to do such fun festivals. We’re really happy to be one of the headliners. We’re really excited.”

It seems like yesterday when 25,000 people were counting down the new year at Rhythm and Vines 2013, and now the time has come again for festival goers to lock in their plans to attend the ultimate New Year's festival.

It is time to secure tickets for New Zealand’s internationally acclaimed 12th annual three day music festival.

Set in one of the most beautiful locations to welcome in the New Year, the Waiohika Estate Vineyard in Gisborne, Rhythm and Vines has become known as New Zealand's biggest New Year's Eve festival showcasing the best Kiwi and international musicians.

In the coming months Rhythm and Vines have some very exciting announcements about the festival site and line up. There will be more to be revealed soon. In the meantime details about ticket prices are now available.
