As the year rolls on and summer fast approaches, Rhythm & Vines is excited to release the festival’s daily line-up PLUS the lowdown on accommodation at the brand new Tepee Life Village and everything you need to know about Club Stolen VIP.

Boasting some of the biggest names yet, the much-anticipated Rhythm & Vines daily line-up is out now; and with so many massive acts, festival-goers won’t want to miss a second. Furthermore, single day tickets are now available so R&V fans can customise their festival experience.

Off the back of a year-long world tour, D&B heavyweights Pendulum will kick off the festival, headlining December 29th along with Grandmaster Flash, Yuksek and Architecture in Helsinki. December 30th will see Calvin Harris, Erick Morillo and Cut Copy take to the stage, as well as NZ favourites Homebrew, Six60 and Scratch 22. And to see out 2011, Rhythm & Vines welcomes a selection of the hottest names in music, with Netsky, Tiga, Skream and Benga, and UK chart-topper Example taking you through to 2012.

For those keen to enjoy the onsite location and chilled-out daytime fun, Rhythm & Vines has introduced a brand new onsite accommodation offering. The Tepee Life Village is a unique, premium accommodation experience best described as a mobile hotel eco-village and is exclusive to R&V 2011. It offers roomy tepees that are pre-assembled and come complete with most camping necessities including mattresses, a table, a lantern and a floor. The Tepee Life Village will be a home away from home during the festival featuring a large communal area complete with daybeds, making it the perfect spot to relax in between acts. No pitching of tents required; guests just need to turn up and settle in!

In other exciting news, Rhythm & Vines has taken its VIP experience up a notch this year, welcoming Stolen Rum's ‘Club Stolen’ – THE hottest ticket this summer. Giving festival goers everything they need in one place, Club Stolen is the very best place to get an amazing, uninterrupted view of the main stage. There won’t be an RTD in sight thanks to Stolen Rum’s resident Rum Runners mixing cocktails to perfection, plus Club Stolen is the perfect place for VIP guests to chill, with food at their fingertips, minimal queuing and the best of the festival on full view. There will also be a live feed to the other stages as well as table service and a coat check. Club Stolen packages and VIP upgrades are available now.

The VIP experience also extends beyond the festival this year with platinum accommodation packages that include access to the exclusive Concrete Playground Pool Party at the Quality Hotel
Emerald Gisborne.

“We’re really excited to be able to offer so many new things at Rhythm and Vines. Single day tickets are something people have been asking for, so we’re happy to be able to do this again this year.” says R&V founder and program director Hamish Pinkham.

“Plus the Tepee Village means you can camp onsite without the hassles that come with camping and as for Club Stolen, there’s no place you’d rather be at R&V!”

And finally, Rhythm & Vines now offers a Layby option through 1-night making it a lot easier to lock in New Year’s Eve and still have cash for Christmas presents.

Big thanks to Rhythm and Vines’ 2011 broadcast partners U and ZM, and proud supporters MTV.
