Rhythm and Vines is one of the most wicked music festivals in New Zealand - especially if you're around for new years.
Loosest.co was selected to be part of the retail crew for the 2016 Rhythm and Vines Music Festival in Gisborne!
There's nothing better than getting loose at one of the sickest new years parties in New Zealand, so we brought some of our gear down in the van (plus the strongman) and headed over to the east cape.
"There's nothing like a midsummer music festival in New Zealand. Rhythm and Vines is the perfect party for new years - beautiful outdoor site, heaps of tunes (CHANCE THE RAPPER this year!), loads of chilled out young people, camping for days (some rain), and the buzz is turned all the way up."
The best part of going to music festivals is the people you meet. Sure, the music was dope and the vibe was positive. But nowhere else can you meet so many people for the first time and feel like you've known them for ages.
Artists from all over the world make the trip out to NZ to be in Gizzy for new years. This year, we got to see:
- Chance the Rapper, Kimbra, Zhu, Rüfüs, Netsky, Wilkinson, Getter, GoldLink, Skream, Denzel Curry, Dusky, Hot Chip, Ac Slater, Savage, The Jordan Luck Band, Cut Snake, S. P. Y, Sachi, Three Houses Down, P-Money, Anna Coddington, ENO x DIRTY, Yoko-Zuna, Bailey Wiley, Pacific Heights, montell2099, Molly and the Chromatics and Stack & Piece.
We had a blast chillin with the 2017 Rhythm & Vines Crew. The best part was hanging out with you, the crowd enjoyin the festival. It was sick havin a chat with you guys! We recommend to anyone, local or abroad, to check out Rhythm and Vines and buy tickets to kick off 2018 down on Waiokia Estate in Gisbourne, New Zealand.
