'Fire & Light Midnight Show' featuring Kim Dotcom

The ‘Fire & Light Midnight Show' featuring Kim Dotcom will set off the New Year with a bang at Rhythm and Vines

Rhythm & Vines is delighted to announce the amazing ‘Fire & Light MidnightShow’ featuring Kim Dotcom at this year’s festival.

In 2010 Kim shouted Auckland $500,000 worth of fireworks to see in the new decade.  Now he is back to woo the crowds yet again, presenting the amazing ‘Fire & LightMidnight Show’ on New Year’s Eve at Rhythm & Vines.

Festival goers will be treated to the biggest Midnight Show ever seen at R&V - a spectacle of fireballs, electroluminescent dancers, lightning bolts and special effects before a breathtaking pyrotechnics display is launched from multiple sites. All this is accompanied by Kim Dotcom on stage with his band performing tracks from his debut dance album “Good Times“ with the final track being performed as a very special treat for the R&V audience by Kim’s close friend Printz Board of Black Eyed Peas fame.

Included in this futuristic multimedia marvel is The Lightning Rider, a character who creates bolts of lightning from his body, while he duels with a Tesla Coil performer who creates electric arcs that snap in an electrifying spectacle creating 5 meter long bolts of lightning.  Alongside them will be El Wire performers who will set the stage alight in their strobe suits dancing in time to Kim’s music. This awesome fireworks display will tie in seamlessly with songs from Kim’s new album.

Rhythm and Vines location in Gisborne is the closest in the world to the international date line and the first to see the sun and welcome in the new year.  But New Zealand’s biggest New Year’s festival is also well known for its huge display of fireworks from the main stage as 25,000 festival goers countdown the seconds to the New Year and this year is going to be the biggest and best ever!

The internationally acclaimed three day music festival, Rhythm and Vines, showcases the world’s best musicians in one of the most beautiful locations to welcome in the New Year, the Waiohika Estate Vineyard in Gisborne, New Zealand.
