Christchurch, December 24, 2012 - More than 50 prolific international and local acts are gearing up to take the stage for the South Island’s premier 2-day camping music festival on the 28th and 29th of December.

“Netsky has landed on kiwi shores and gearing up for a big one; “It’s my third time to New Zealand, and this time I have my live band. We’ll be playing live on the main stage on the 28th and I can’t wait!”

Situated in the picturesque Canterbury Plains region, Terrace Downs Resort will play host to Rhythm and Alps for its second consecutive year. Only a 50 min drive from Christchurch City Airport, an accessible location with free camping for ticket holders.

Rhythm and Alps will boast 3 stages each with their own personality and stature. ‘The Alpine Arena’ will the host the heavyweights including; SBTRKT LIVE, Disclosure, Netsky LIVE and Hospitality (Showcase); ‘The Rhythm Room’ will bring the heat with the likes of Flume, Hermitude, Die!Die!Die! and JStar; and the third and final, is tucked away in the forest amongst a magical woodland setting hence it’s name, ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ - staging a stellar, all-local line up.
