Rhythm and Alps 2019 runs over three nights from 29th Dec – 1st Jan 2021. Situated in the stunning Cardrona Valley, in the mighty Southern Alps of New Zealand, the festival is just a 40-minute drive from Queenstown and 15 minutes from Wanaka.


Pitch a tent with your mates or drive your campervan right to your campsite. You'll be set up with: hot showers; plenty of toilets; phone charging facilities; access to the swimming hole; a full vendor village; and a general store exclusive to campers.


There will be buses to and from Wanaka and Queenstown daily for a small fee (details to be published in November). We have plenty of secure car parking onsite and we're a short drive from Wanaka or Queenstown.

bars & vendor village

Rhythm & Alps is a licenced festival providing three bars serving ice cold beers, wine and cocktails and over 15 diverse vendors providing incredible food options. Due to our licence, we cannot allow BYO alcohol on site.


The R&A festival site is nestled in New Zealand’s picturesque Southern Alps in the heart of the Cardrona Valley. Surrounded by mountains, streams and just down the road from ​Lake Wanaka - we know this is one of the most beautiful places NZ has to offer!
