SURVIVE THE VINES

Find below some tips and insights from festival veterans, staff and the likes as we go into detail on how best to survive the vines.

This isn’t a drill. You will be tested, but if you are smart, festival fit and little bit frothy, you will not only survive your first R&V, but also live to tell the tale.


PACK YOUR SURVIVAL KIT

These items are essential and you will struggle to get by without them so plan ahead!

MUST BRING

  • If camping, a Waterproof Tent - don't skip out on a cheap tent (BIG MISTAKE)

  • Warm blankets

  • Pillow

  • Toothbrush/Tooth paste

  • Toiletries (shampoo and body wash)

  • Sunblock

  • Towels and plenty of them!

  • Empty plastic water bottles that you can refill inside the festival and stay hydrated.

  • Your ticket - show it on your phone, or print out a copy.

  • Your Photo ID - you will need one of the valid identifications listed below to allow your entry into R&V. Your ID will need to match the details on your ticket. 

    • Passport

    • Drivers License

    • HANZ 18+ Card

  • Debit/Eftpos card to load money onto your AWOP wristband

  • Covered shoes (jandals are the number one fatality on festival roads)

OPTIONAL (But highly recommended)

  • Gumboots/Rain jacket 

  • Lip Balm (dry lips are no fun)

  • Power Bank or 2 

  • Sunhat and Sunnies

  • Jandals/Sandals for around the campsite - showering, but as above, not great for front right frothing.

  • Bring a hoodie or jumper! For the colder evenings 

  • Download the Rhythm and Vines App for our set times, important info, and a map!

  • Dress up’s for the 30th ;)


CHECK IN TIPS

The check-in opens at 9am on December 28th for the super keen campers. The only ID we can legally accept is a Passport, New Zealand Driver’s License, or a HANZ 18+ card. Be aware of this and remind your mates - no discretion, it’s the law!

Check in times are as follows:

Friday 28th December 2018: 12pm - 9pm

Saturday 29th December 2018: 10am - 9pm

Sunday 30th December 2018: 1pm - 9pm

Monday 31st December 2018: 1pm - 9pm

Make sure your ID still looks like you and isn’t too old. If you happen to lose/forget/are waiting on a new ID when Rhythm & Vines comes around… don’t bother begging! No discretion - it’s the law and unfortunately there’s nothing we can do. This is your reminder.
