The New Zealand/Aotearoa music festival has some major names on this year's bill.
New Zealand’s summer music festival Rhythm & Vines has released its first line-up announcement for 2023 - and it’s bound to get punters excited.
The three-day event, which will return to Gisborne from December 28 to January 1 in an epic New Year’s celebration, will see the return of UK drill rapper Central Cee, who will return to the stage after performing at last year’s Listen In Festival.
The Sprinter rapper will be joined by beloved Australian DJ duo, Peking Duk, as well as London drum and bass producer Wilkinson.
There’s also the exciting inclusion of rising local house legend, Dom Dolla, who has had an unstoppable year that’s included selling out two hometown shows in five minutes, dropping a single with Nelly Furtado, closing out Day Trip Festival, and recently being announced as a headliner for upcoming Aussie festival Spilt Milk.
