Wellness Zone & Women's Only Space Announced

Things are really shaping up for the sixteenth edition of Rhythm & Vines.

In the interest of making Rhythm & Vines as safe as possible, we’re introducing the Wellness Zone - a calm and comfortable sanctuary, with health foods available for those who want to escape the madness. There will be multiple areas to relax with some chill tunes, outdoor games, and an opportunity to try out some wellness activities such as yoga, mindfulness, and express facials or massages.

In addition to this, R&V will be adding a private women’s only space that’s tucked away at the back of the Wellness tent. Entry to the Women’s area will be through the Wellness tent, which will involve a comfortable seating area with calming visuals and music, along with a reception area providing complimentary infused water, bliss balls and kombucha available to purchase.

This is a safe space for vulnerable women to go to if an incident has occurred, or if they just want some space. The Women’s area will have trained volunteers as a source of support for festival go-ers who need private space, to talk or just generally to feel supported in a break-out space. The volunteers will also be available to everyone in the wellness tent.

Surrounding both of these tents will be an outside area with giant wooden games, seating, avocado on toast available to purchase from 8am-12pm and daily yoga at 12:30pm and 2:30pm. The hours of these areas are 8am-1am daily and throughout the whole night of the 31st.

Lifeline is Rhythm & Vines chosen charity for 2018, and will be launching a range of fundraising events to support them.
