More than a music festival

The mighty Rhythm and Alps is one of NZ's most iconic festivals, with up to 10,000 good humans joining us from all over the world. Best sound and lighting production New Zealand has to offer!

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.

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!

There will be over 50 acts performing across our 5 stages with the best sound and lighting production in the country. All stages deliver the highest standard of production in NZ, giving you, the festival goer, a complete visual and sonic experience like nothing else
