Another day bursting with summer vibes! Togs for the day, then a dress up night - pirates, dinosaurs, carrots and fairies were all spotted roaming through the vines.

Fresh festival goers started off their day with yoga whilst others kicked it off with a flying, soapy start at Socialiser Soccer. With a bright blue sky through the whole day, Bass Camp pool became the hub of activity as campers enjoyed another afternoon volleying and dipping toes.

A Rhythm first, P-Money took on the Jägermeister Supernova and hand picked artists of the stage, a stellar lineup including Team Dynamite, Sid Diamond, PNC and the man himself, P-Money.

The second sunset set of the festival belonged to Aussie superstar Chet Faker who wowed crowds of the Rhythm Stage for the second year in a row, starting of with some improvisation and finishing up with the heartfelt Talk is Cheap. Ta-ku was next on stage, making his New Zealand debut, and was followed by British drum and bass DJs Chase and Status (DJ Set) who were supported by MC Rage. An exhilarating performance, it left the crowd totally pumped and raring to party around the Arcadia Afterburner, new stage shipped in all the way from the UK, into the wee hours with DC Breaks.

The festival will celebrate its final night, and the last day of year tomorrow with a huge international lineup including Bastille, Zane Lowe and London Elektricity and MC Wrec alongside Kiwi favourites like Broods, Aroha, Frank Booker and Pleaseplease.
