The new location is the beautiful Cardrona Valley, 15 minutes south of Wanaka, Central Otago. The festival site is located between the famous Cardrona Ski resort and the high rolling terrain of the Pisa Plateau. The fifteen year consent was issued by the Queenstown Lakes District Council. Rhythm and Alps will cater for up to 5000 campers this year, employ up to 100 local persons and involve local clubs.
Rhythm and Alps is the only two-day music festival in the South Island, and due to popular demand, will run at the same time as world class juggernaut Rhythm and Vines in Gisborne. New festival dates 30-31 December ensure South Islander’s have a festival to see in the new year with music and style!
