We demonstrate nonlinear higher rank gauge symmetry with volume-preserving diffeomorphism as the symmetry group. We show that various condensed matter systems, including fractional quantum Hall effect and vortex crystal in a rotating Bose gas, possess this symmetry. Based on the symmetry, we construct an effective field theory describing the Tkachenko mode, which is the elastic wave propagating on a vortex lattice of a rotating Bose-Einstein condensate. We derive an estimate for the lifetime of the mode.
