Festival Description

Gisborne has some wonderful things going for it—more than just happening to be the first city in the entire world to see the sunrise everyday. BW Campgrounds was born to help host the thousands of visitors venturing to the district for the Rhythm and Vines New Years Eve festival. BW began simply as one campground with a bit of a spin but has now grown into something much more than that. BW operates three camps that are now all within walking distance of each other and plans are to host over 8,000 people this season. The Festival encompasses everything that is a kiwi summer—first of all you have the epic road trip, then the great NZ music, surf, sunshine, beautiful beaches, camping, good company and lets not forget epic parties! This is what a NZ summer time is all about! If you would like to know more about the Rhythm and Vines Music Festival please visit
