Extrovert Aussie electronica act Empire of the Sun will headline this year’s Rhythm and Vines music festival.

The line-up for the popular event, held at Waiohika Estate in Gisborne from December 29-31, was released this evening.

Empire of the Sun's second album, Ice on the Dune, was released this year. Formed by Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore, they are known for outlandish costumes and extravagant live shows.

Their first album, Walking on a Dream, went double platinum in Australia, and they first played Rhythm and Vines in 2009.

Kiwi drum and bass outfit Shapeshifter will also appear, along with Wellington's own The Phoenix Foundation and English DJ Flux Pavilion.

The rest of the lineup features the Hospitality club night, hosted by London label Hospital Records and acts Tahuna Breaks, P-Money, Julio Bashmore, @Peace, Rustie, Soul Clap, Hermitude, David Dallas, Dusky, Concord Dawn and Chet Faker.
