Rhythm and Alps heads south


Rhythm and Alps has swapped Canterbury for the Cardrona Valley, for its latest two-day music festival in the South Island for the next 15 years.

The Rhythm Group confirmed consent was issued by the Queenstown Lakes District Council for the festival to be based from this December between the Cardrona Ski resort and the Pisa Plateau.

Rhythm and Alps will run at the same time as its elder sibling Rhythm and Vines, in Gisborne.

Rhythm and Alps announced earlier in the year that due to popular demand it would change the festival dates to December 30 and 31, to ensure South Islanders have a festival to see in the new year with music and style.
