Music festival should be ripper
With only days until Wanaka’s Rippon Festival, tickets are being snapped up but general admission tickets are available to buy. Festival director Lynne Christie said ticket sales were ‘‘humming along nicely’’ with Goldmember and Gazebo tickets sold out. Organisers were thankful to see the weather for Saturday was looking good. ‘‘It’s looking lovely. It’s nice to see it’s looking more settled,’’ Ms Christie said. The festival, in its 10th year, boosts a music line up featuring Electric Wire Hustle, HomeBrew, Fat Freddy’s Drop, The Phoenix Foundation, Ladi6, Die!Die!Die!, Kody Nielson, Brockaflowersaurus-Rex, Myele Manzanza, The Digg, Some Other Planets and Estere. Special guests P Digsss, KPz, Ria Hall, Sunshine Sound System, DJ Reno, Anika Moa and Peacekeepers complete the mix.
