The final lineup of the second Rhythm and Alps in Cardrona has been announced, with Chet Faker, Zane Lowe and London Elektricity joining headliners Bastille.

Once again the headlining acts will perform in Cardrona on December 30 before heading to Gisborne.

Festival organisers have promised more resources and staff on deck to handle the 10,000-strong crowd expected for the festival.

Tickets went on sale last month but it was expected there would be a spike in sales from today with the announcement.

Festival head of marketing Julie Warmington said there were no plans to exceed the 10,000 tickets that were available. "We do expect to sell out again this year," she said.

Organisers had not expected the event would be as popular as it was in its first year in Cardrona after it was moved from Methven.

Complaints were raised about the lengthy check-in times, wait periods for buying drinks and not enough buses heading from the event back to Wanaka, causing long delays.

Warmington said there would be faster entry, fewer queues, more staff and buses, as well as a larger camping area.
