The momentum is picking up for this year's Rhythm Rotorua - a day of great music, good food, fine wines and boutique wines.
Rhythm Rotorua has been running for many years and BluesFeast secretary Anita Loderus said this year's event should be one of the best yet.
"The momentum is really taking off, there are a lot of people interested, the weather is going to be great. We're busy just getting everything done - organising the shade, the food and the wine."
She was hoping for 1000 people.
"With the weather being as good as it's looking, we're looking forward to a great day. There will be plenty of shade and chairs for everyone. It will be a real family affair with lots of lovely food."
The line-up for Rhythm Rotorua includes rhythm and blues foot-stomping show Brilleaux led by Graham Clark and Bruce Rolands, iconic Rotorua band Cairo, Wizard & Oz duo Andrew Farrel and David McMillan, Tauranga's B-Side Band with their own brand of blues and roots music with a home grown Kiwi flavour, Harley Kruz and Rotorua's premium country band The Geyserlanders.
This would be the sixth year the music event has been held and the second under its new name, Rhythm Rotorua - previously known as Rotorua BluesFeast.
Rhythm Rotorua will be at the Rotorua Arts Village (RAVE) on the corner of Hinemoa and Hinemaru Sts on Sunday between 12.30pm and 8pm.
Tickets are available from RAVE, the Belgian Bar, Seismic Gastrobar, Ticketmaster and the New Zealand Credit Union for $25.
