Rhythm and Vines is back for 2016 with a killer first lineup announcement. None other than Chance the Rapper will be heading to our shores for the first time ever for this year's festival. You can stop right there, cancel all other plans; we're sold.
Accompanying Chance, are other heavyweight acts Zhu and Rüfüs - and that's just what's been announced for headline acts so far. As far as the rest of the lineup goes, we're stoked to see Netsky is back for his forth year bringing in a Gisborne New Years, and another notable entry is that of British electronic band Hot Chip, who never fail to play an epic show.
Without further adieu, here's the full first announcement line up for Rhythm and Vines 2016:
Chance the Rapper, ZHU, RÜFÜS, Wilkinson DJ, Netsky DJ, Goldlink, Denzel Curry, Getter, Dusky, Skream, Hot Chip DJ, AC Slater, S.P.Y, Savage, The Jordan Luck Band, P Money, Sachi, Yoko-Zuna, Pacific Heights, Anna Coddington, Three Houses Down, Bailey Wiley, Eno x Dirty, Montell2099, Stack & Piece.
