Share the history, be part of our future
When the R&V crew held their very first festival at Waohika Estate for just 1,800 people in 2003 they had no way of knowing if they could pull it off, let alone how successful and loved it would eventually become.

When the R&V crew held their very first festival at Waohika Estate for just 1,800 people in 2003 they had no way of knowing if they could pull it off, let alone how successful and loved it would eventually become.

Now heading toward their 10th New Year festival, organisers are ecstatic about the calibre of artists they are bringing to Gisborne.

“Our continued success is really a testament to the support we’ve had from festival goers across New Zealand.
Artists love playing here, they have the happiest, most enthusiastic group of music lovers to play for in an unbeatable setting among the vines… it’s no wonder we’re able to keep booking amazing acts like this year after year.” – Hamish Pinkham, Festival Director and R&V founder.

New Record Breaking Sales
With two thirds of tickets (over 17,000) selling before the release of a single artist and reaching over 21,000 by  October, organisers know that this year’s crowd will be anticipating the best festival yet and they are ready to deliver. This could be the first time R&V sells out before hitting the ground on the 29th.

This could be the first time R&V sells out before hitting the ground on the 29th.

NZ’s premier music festival is the first place in the world to see the sun rise on the New Year. There will be nowhere  else like it.

Festival Production & Art
R&V’s production team are going all out this year, with expansion and improvements in all areas of the site. The stages (Rhythm, Vines, Cellar and Red Bull Music Academy) are all new this year and state-of-the-art. Meanwhile the site will be taken over by lavish structures, installations, projected imagery, and an array of lighting effects. Also new this year is the Rhythm Rider, a mobile DJ soundsystem that will move around the site. The peak of the production team’s efforts will be seen on the 31st, with a spectacular fireworks display marking R&V’s tenth midnight countdown.

Boom Town
Fans are familiar with R&V’s Electric Avenue, a quirky lane of stalls containing ‘The Fridge’ and other mischief. But now to add to the fun there will also be Boom Town, a brand-new area of vendors near the Vines Stage with all sorts of treats, like make-up artistry, hairdressing, novelties, clothing and food. There will also be fancy dress costumes - which will come in handy on the 30th for R&V’s first official Dress-Up Day!

Onsite Campgrounds
With the onsite campgrounds now expanded to accommodate 8,000 people, the R&V team has put considerable effort into keeping campers occupied each day before the stages open. A ‘Sports and Activities’ manager is now on board, and a timetable of daily events will be rolled out, including; beach volleyball, water pong, a bootcamp for the fitness freaks, sleeping bag races, a graffiti wall and more. The first and last nights of camping (28 Dec and 1 Jan) will have movie screenings, now that R&V’s facebook fans have voted for their favourite films.

Vintage Club
R&V’s VIP upgrades are becoming more popular each year for festival-goers who want a stylish respite from the heaving crowds. This year the team has created Vintage Club, where those seeking cocktails, comfort and elevated views can party in a more intimate setting.
