UPDATE: Rhythm & Vines 2021 rescheduled


Rhythm and Vines have today announced the reschedule of R&V2021.

The statement released by the festival is as follows.

"This decision has been made in consultation with Tairāwhiti Iwi, Tairāwhiti DHB, local councils and members of parliament and takes into account the New Zealand Government announcement on November 29 that the Gisborne region will remain at the Red setting of the Traffic Light System until at least December 13 2021.

"Rhythm and Vines’ mission has, and always will be a safe and secure festival for all involved and believes this decision will allow us to keep delivering the best festival experience that over 400,000 young kiwis have enjoyed since 2003.

"Rhythm and Vines would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has continued to support this year's festival including all staff, contractors, artists and suppliers who will have been affected by this decision.

"Getting vaccinated is how we can return to the shows and festivals we love and we encourage everyone to #vaxforlive"
