Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, there’s even more reason to get down to Gisborne for New Year’s!

Best Festival award winner at the recent NZ Tourism Awards, Rhythm & Vines today announced a bonus release to its 2010 lineup, with the additions of Flying Lotus (Live), The Gaslamp Killer and Hudson Mohawk, local sensations The Naked and Famous and legendary 70s rockers Dragon.

Experimental multi-genre producer Flying Lotus has the music intelligentsia swooning all the way to hometown California and back. With rumours already flying on Australian website , it was officially confirmed this week that the LA beat wizard is in fact on the R&V bill. Joining Flying Lotus on 30 December is LA-based DJ The Gaslamp Killer. The crowd can expect an explosive set with his electric style ranging from pyschedelia to world music, dubstep and left-field hip hop.

Scotland based producer/DJ Hudson Mohawk joins Flying Lotus and Gaslamp Killer on the tour and also plays on 30 December.

The Naked and Famous need no introduction as ‘the’ Kiwi band of 2010. They’ll be joined on New Year’s Eve by legends Dragon who’ll keep the crowd happy with Kiwi summer anthems ‘Are You Old Enough?’ and ‘April Sun in Cuba.’

Add to this bonus release the latest additions in the BW Campgrounds festival line-up, and Gisborne is undoubtedly the number one place to be for music lovers this summer - with an entire week of music like nothing our shores have seen! ‘Festival week’ kicks off on 27 December at BW with a massive opening night featuring Kora, Six60, The Freestylers (UK), State of Mind (Live) and The Checks.

BW is operating in and around R&V opening hours with warm-up shows, daytime shows and late night after parties, for maximum musical goodness.

Near Waikanae Beach, BW is the perfect base for any fun-loving R&V goer with daytime activities like wakeboarding and bikini competitions to help recharge the batteries.BW Campgrounds has joint packages that include your campsite and Rhythm & Vines 3 Day Pass. There are also limited day tickets starting at $20 for non-campers wanting in on the music, so head to for more info.

As far as other accommodation goes, R&V Onsite Camping has now sold out but Woodlands Campervan Park has now been released to accommodate campervans and there are a few houses and camping options also available.

Due to strong sales for this year’s Festival, the ticket price goes up to full price on Monday 22 November, with a 3 Day GA Festival increasing from $220.00 to $235 (plus booking fee). As part of the close alignment between BW Campgrounds and R&V, the discounted price of $220.00 still applies when booking at BW Campgrounds (until allocation runs out).

Available now are a limited amount of Special Reserve VIP tickets. Those with VIP tickets can look forward to star treatment in their very own area with a prime spot overlooking the main stage. The VIP enclosure also includes its own luxury toilets, huge undercover bar area and chillout marquee.

VIPs can take advantage of a daily meet-and-greet in Gisborne township. Here VIP hosts will accredit you to the festival, and after enjoying some hospitality, escort you to a priority bus service taking you straight to the event.

Purchase your ticket to the Special Reserve VIP before 1 December and go in the draw to win three nights at the brand spanking new Ahikaa Accommodation, a Panasonic SDRS50 High Zoom Camcorder to record your memories and $500 (US) worth of Lifetime clothing.

Can’t make the full three days? Single Day Tickets are available for each day starting at $85.00. See the day schedule below for more information.

R&V’s hunt for the ultimate understudy is well underway, and the road for our six R&V Protégé finalists has been long and fraught with challenges! The ZM People’s Choice Award goes to none other than Flash or Matt Gordon – big ups Flash! We’re not letting the cat out of the bag quite yet though. Stay tuned for our Top Three to be announced 3 December and our overall winner also in December.
