Rhythm & Vines 2014

George FM is stoked to Present/Support Rhythm and Vines 2014

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.

Rhythm & Vines 2014 - Line up

Get your New Year planned down to the T with the Rhythm & Vines festival timetable, covering three days of live music from leading local and international artists.


Rhythm and Vines is excited to add an outstanding selection of new artists to the final 2014 festival line up joining international artists such as Bastille, Netsky, Danny Brown, Just Blaze, Chet Faker, and more.

The final line up includes over 30 additional acts, bringing the total number of acts for the 3 day festival to over 75.

Included in the new line up is Chase and Status aka Saul Milton and Will Kennard. The London drum & bass duo have recently laid down the tracks that would make up their third studio album - Brand New Machine. The album that brims with surging, dancefloor anthems, dusty trip hop grooves, is an instantly memorable collection of swaggering cuts tuned to a club setting. Their platinum selling album stormed the UK charts to #2. For the best part of 10 years, Milton and Kennard have continually pushed drum’n'bass’s experimental spirit into increasingly brave, unchartered areas. Remixing for the likes of Jay Z and The Prodigy and now with Brand New Machine’s kaleidoscopic sound, they’ve rebooted their reputation as the one of most exciting production teams on the scene.

Retuning to Rhythm and Vines after an extremely successful year on home soil and abroad is brother and sister duo, Broods. Nelson-born brother-sister duo Broods (Caleb and Georgia Nott) are the most celebrated young band to emerge out of New Zealand in recent times. Working with producer Joel Little (Lorde) they announced their arrival with glossy synth-pop ballads 'Bridges', 'Never Gonna Change' and their self-titled debut EP. They have performed across the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Along the way they've shared stages with Ellie Goulding, Haim, CHVRCHES, and just finished supporting breakout English pop star Sam Smith on his sold out US tour. They've also headlined their own sold-out appearances, and set the internet alight with their third single 'Mother & Father'. In August this year things went white hot for them with the release of their Joel Little produced debut album Evergreen, debuting at #1 on the New Zealand Albums Chart and #5 on the Australian Albums Chart. Last year’s Rhythm and Vines marked their first ever festival performance, and we can’t wait to welcome them back.

Delta Heavy are 
Simon James and Ben Hall who met at Nottingham University in 2003 where they quickly established themsleves as credible newcomers on the drum and bass scene. Their debut release appeared on Viper’s acclaimed Acts Of Mad Men compilation in June 2009, they signed to drum & bass mogul Andy C’s Ram, label home of Chase & Status and Sub Focus. They have remixed for Nero, Example, Avicii and Tinie Tempah. Influenced as much by UK drum & bass as the recent explosion of dance music in the US, Delta Heavy will bring a live show not be missed.

Grandtheft is a Producer/DJ based in Toronto, who has slayed clubs worldwide and is respected as one of the best live DJs Canada has to offer. Grandtheft's productions have garnered heavy support from the likes of Diplo, Major Lazer, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Skream, Zeds Dead and BBC debuts from Annie Mac and Mista Jam.
In 2012, Grandtheft collaborated with Diplo to remix Calvin Harris and Florence Welch's hit 'Sweet Nothing'. Released on Ultra, the remix became a worldwide smash in and of itself, garnering over 4 Million plays on Soundcloud and climbing to the Top 10 on the iTunes Dance Chart. Grandtheft kicked off 2014 with a Las Vegas residency at Surrender and tour dates across North America and will end this tour wih a live set at R&V.

Arcadia Afterburner Stage

R&V is bringing the Arcadia Afterburner to NZ for the first time. As seen at Glastonbury and T in The Park the Arcadia Afterburner 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.
