Kimbra, Chase and Status and Mark Ronson are all set to play at the 10th Rhythm and Vines festival.
Organisers today confirmed the main line-up for the festival, which will take place at the Waiohika Estate in Gisborne on December 29-31.
More international artists than ever before have been confirmed on the bill, alongside some of New Zealand's best.
Headliners The Presets, Six60 and araabMUZIK will ring in the New Year on December 31 while Kimbra, Knife Party, and Netsky LIVE will kick off the action on the opening day.
Headline acts for December 30 are UK artists Chase & Status and Mark Ronson who will both perform DJ sets, and the Hospital Records artists, including High Contrast, Logistics, Camo & Krooked.
More acts will be confirmed in the run-up to the festival.
Two-thirds of the tickets - 17,000 - have already been sold before any acts were announced.
Organisers said they are ready to deliver "the best festival yet" to this year's crowd and believe this year could be the first time R&V sells out before kicking off on December 29.
"Our continued success is really a testament to the support we've had from festival goers across New Zealand," Hamish Pinkham, festival director and R&V founder, said.
"Artists love playing here, they have the happiest, most enthusiastic group of music lovers to play for in an unbeatable setting."
