Tickets for this year's La De Da New Year's Eve festival in Martinborough will go on sale this week.
Bad weather turned last year's event at Daisybank Farm into muddy moshpit, but rain or shine, this year's festival would top the last, festival manager Kate Goddard said.
There were plans to increase the international line up of bands, while keeping the Kiwi favourites.
The festival would also boost its food and wine festival feel by expanding the food village and introducing a new site on Dry River Road.
Organisers are expecting 10,000 people to attend the two-day event, held on December 30 and 31.
La De Da tickets can be purchased from online from Thursday and the first line-up announcements will be made in July.
