Press release:

RHYTHM & VINES are pleased to announce the exciting third instalment of artists set to complement a high calibre international and local programme for 2009. The following acts will be joining over 50 stellar acts already announced who are set to ignite the three-day festival from 28 December – 31 December.

Australian multi-platinum recording artists JOHN BUTLER TRIO are no stranger to the touring circuit and their smooth roots, blues and rock-based grooves have made them a firm favourite for many New Zealanders. Led by guitarist and vocalist John Butler, the trio have previously played iconic festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival, Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza to rave reviews. JOHN BUTLER TRIO are set to impress with their first ever appearance at RHYTHM & VINES this year, off the back of a brand new single from a forthcoming album due out next year.

Encompassing dub, ragga, funk and hip hop, Mercury Prize nominated ROOTS MANUVA (aka Rodney Smith) will be bringing his lyrical wonderment and silly genius all the way from South London to RHYTHM & VINES this year. ROOTS MANUVA has led the way for other UK artists such as The Streets and Dizzee Rascal, and his influence has even stretched to bands such as The Arctic Monkeys, who are on record as saying that ROOTS MANUVA’s 2001 album ‘Run Come Save Me’ was almost all they listened to whilst recording their debut album. ROOTS MANUVA’s recent album ‘Slime & Reason’ possesses the kind of of freewheeling, reggae-drenched tunes that make it the perfect sound for summer, and RHYTHM & VINES 2009.

Scottish band BIFFY CLYRO has been critically acclaimed by international media and fans alike, and will make their New Zealand debut at RHYTHM & VINES. United by a love of underground, experimental rock and post-hardcore bands, BIFFY CLYRO have honed their own unique sound, from a mind boggling mix of off-kilter tempos, itchy, unpredictable guitars, soulful choruses and feral screams, to a rich and complex take on rock anthems. Their 2007 album ‘Puzzle’ shot them to mainstream success, leading BIFFY CLYRO to play Wembley Stadium with Muse, headlining the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury and gigging with The Rolling Stones. Their well-toured and electric live show will definitely be one not to be missed.

Emerging from the mist and shadows of the blogosphere, few producers or DJ's have managed to simultaneously create insane amounts of both hype and frustration as UK’s FAKE BLOOD - an alias used by DJ Touche, also half of The Black Ghosts. Meticulously constructed releases have popped many an electro-diehard's blood vessels making FAKE BLOOD one of the most enigmatic acts of recent times. With infectious rave melodies like his debut original ‘Mars,’ and ‘Blood Splashing (Fake Blood Theme)’, plus a swathe of killer remixes from artists as diverse as Armand Van Helden, Bonde Do Role, The Kills, and the legendary Underworld, FAKE BLOOD is sure to be the name on everyone's lips at RHYTHM & VINES.

Minimal and Tech house DJ JOEL ARMSTRONG will be making his way to Gisborne this year from his home base of Vancouver, Canada. Over the last five years, Joel's name has become associated with quality electronic music, having established a strong following with his creative productions. He moves clubbers with his loopy grooves behind the decks, from rocking international summer festivals and raves, to popular club nights and residencies. Keeping on the dance tip, BONDI HOUSE DJ’s from Australia are also set to bring the noise, so expect tight sets from both these acts this year at R&V!

From the local scene, hot up and coming Wellington band FAMILY CACTUS will be joining the bill, off the back of rave live reviews across the country and their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Come Howling’. Other top notch kiwi artists include Dunedin-based band SIX60, who bring their fresh kiwi fusion of roots, reggae, hip hop, dub step, and drum and bass; MIKEY HAVOC, AROHA, BRAZILBEAT SOUNDSYSTEM, VITAL SOUNDSYSTEM, BLACKBIRD, LOGAN BAKER, R.I.A., SNOWY, DJ ROBBA AND MC DREADEYE, FLEX, THIRTYEIGHTFOURTY, ELM, SHIRTPANTS, +1, and JONAS.
