Is Rhythm and Vines the party that never sleeps?

Presale registrations for next summer’s four-day (including campers’ entertainment day) have already clocked in at 24,000. That is 5000 more than at this time last year — and the number is climbing. Organisers forecast registrations will reach 30,000 by the time the opportunity closes at midnight tomorrow [Sunday.

Presale tickets go on sale at midday on Monday.

“We are expecting mid, bass, rhythm and premium camp to sell out during the presale, and treble and sundown, our two largest, to sell out not long after,” says R&V’s head of marketing and partnerships Kyle Bell.

The top points scorer during the presale wins a four person glamping package while the top 100 points scorers gain access to limited $200, three-day GA Festival Passes.

If you missed, or can’t get enough of, R&V’s countdown video that welcomes in the new year with a recap of the past 12 months the clip can be viewed at tinyurl.com/y8dgqr7x.

The 2018 Happy New Year R&V video opens with a voice-over that might or might not belong to the late Professor Stephen Hawking who greets festival-goers with “If there is a message I can give for the new year it would be remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. If you are lucky enough to find love remember it is rare and don’t throw it away.

“But most importantly play bangers every day.”

For those who would like to relive the 2018 R&V experience the after-movie has just been released and can be found at tinyurl.com/ybew2dk5.
