6 December, 2013

The Red Bull Music Academy Stage Returns to Rhythm and Vines with an Epic Line-Up

The Red Bull Music Academy is back to curate a stage at the 2013 Rhythm and Vines Festival for the third consecutive year. The #RBMA stage is returning bigger and better, with the Red Bull Tiki Bar on site to help the crowd through the long days and even longer nights.

In keeping with the ethos of championing new talent, the #RBMA stage will play host to an array of local and musical pioneers alongside emerging acts and past academy participants, to create a unique platform for those who shape our musical future.

The line-up boasts Kode9, Electric Wire Hustle, Julien Dyne and Young Tapz on December 29, DJ Zinc, Wolf and Lamb, Louis Baker, and She’s So Rad (special disco set) on December 30, and Mark Pritchard, Nick D, Frank Booker, Boy Crush, HIGH HØØPS,Tommy Flowers and Sam Fitzgerald on December 31 to cross the crowd over to the new year.

Electric Wire Hustle achieved cult status with their debut self-titled album. A flood of production requests followed their first release, the fruits of which Rhythm and Vines audiences are likely to be treated to.

“We've been privileged to join our RBMA family on many stages around the world, from Sonar Festival in Barcelona to Way Out West in Goteburg. This years R&V stage is sure to be another highlight as we get to play alongside some of our favourite artists such as Mark Pritchard, Louis Baker, DJ Zinc and Julien Dyne,“ says Taay Ninh, producer and keyboardist for Electric Wire Hustle. “We've got a new line-up and a raft of new tunes from our forthcoming album 'Love Can Prevail/Blackwater' that we can't wait to unleash, it‘s going to be large!“

Mark Pritchard is a Sydney based DJ and electronic music producer, and has released records on Warp Records and Hyberdub. Zinc’s career as a DJ and producer stretches the steady evolution of hardcore from its house and rave roots through ragga and hip hop styled hardstep and beyond. Zinc was one of the first drum and bass producers to score with the two step garage market courtesy of his 1999 single, "138 Trek." Wolf and Lamb play passionate music that moves hearts, not just feet.

Rhythm and Vines will be held at the Waiohika Estate in Gisborne fromDecember 29 to December 31. Set times have now been announced To read more about the artists performing at the #RBMA stage, visit To read more about the academy, visit
