The Edge presents R&V 2015

Rhythm and Vines is famed as one of the best festival experiences in the Southern Hemisphere and the first festival in the world to welcome the sunrise of the new year. For 2015 the festival is broadening its appeal even further, with more afternoon and early evening entertainment and a wider selection of musical genres.
Earlybird tickets were in hot demand when they were released in May, selling out within minutes, and their tiered price tickets are slowly starting to sell out.


Rhythm and Vines has an unbeatable array of accommodation options, from onsite camping amongst the vines at Waiohika Estate, through to the new beachfront camping product at Waikanae beach.

And for those who want that something extra, we have a range of premium accommodation options from glamping, Teepees, Hotel packages and more. There is something for everyone.
