Rhythm & Vines 2012- R&V Midnight Images

Media Release
Rhythm and Vines
Gisborne, New Zealand

1 January 2013

A 30,000 strong crowd welcomed in 2013 on Waiohika Estate, with a world-class musical line-up across five stages. Dave Dobbyn, Six60, P-Money, The Presets, Benga, DJ Yoda, and more kept revelers dancing, with up to 3,000 remaining in front of the Vines Stage to watch the sun come up on the new year.

At midnight the fireworks were many times bigger and better than previous years, and fire dancers took to the stage while large LED light balls were thrown into the crowd.

Organisers were pleased with the chilled out and good natured festival-goers, and Police have had minimal trouble over the whole three day period of the festival.

Camping at Waiohika remains open today, giving people the opportunity to rest and relax before the journey home.

Rhythm and Vines would like to thank everyone who attended for making the tenth anniversary festival memorable.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
