Wellington Waterfront

Spread across five stages in a stunning central location on Wellington's waterfront, Jim Beam Homegrown is the biggest celebration of music from Aotearoa. The festival brings together thousands of New Zealand music fans and more than 40 of the country’s best bands and DJs. 

There's music for everyone with a wide range of genres including reggae, roots, hip hop, electronic, rock and drum & bass all heard throughout the venue. Hear hitmakers Drax Project, the gritty beats of Kora, the smooth sounds of Sons of Zion and Ladi6, reggae legends Katchafire, and RnB cool cats Swiss & Tree.  

The festival will also welcome familiar names including Shihad, Devilskin, Villainy, Racing, The Beths, SACHI, Mitch James, The Upbeats, Quix, Gin Wigmore, Sir Dave Dobbyn, Masaya and many more. No matter the musical moment you’re after, you’ll find it at Jim Beam Homegrown.

To go alongside the music, there’ll be a range of entertainment options including carnival rides and interactive experiences, as well as many places to grab delicious food and drink, all helping to create the ultimate festival experience. 
 
Another aspect that makes Jim Beam Homegrown so unique is that you can come and go at any time, meaning you can enjoy everything the capital has to offer. Pop over to Cuba Street for lunch, go shopping for a mid-festival outfit change or have some time out from the festival crowds at Oriental Bay.  
 
This isn't your average music festival and there's a reason that it sells out each year. In short: it's awesome.
