A taste of what is to come in a behind-the-scenes documentary about the Rhythm and Vines music festival is outlined in a trailer for The Road to Rhythm posted on The Gisborne Herald Facebook page.

The trailer to the four-part web series gives viewers a glimpse of the often gritty, always passionate, road from the festival’s summertime party origins to a full-blown international event.

Owned by the late Dean Witters, Waiohika Estate’s natural amphitheatres provided a venue for a festival.

In one poignant moment in the trailer, Mr Witters describes the festival’s early years.

“I just stood here and looked down over the crowd,” he says, as he struggles to keep his emotions in check.

“My thoughts were ‘what a bloody monster’.”

Directed by Belinda Henley and Phill Prendeville, The Road to Rhythm, the untold story of Rhythm and Vines, will be launched on The New Zealand Herald website nzherald.co.nz from May 31.
