Homegrown have made the following official statement:

"It's with an extremely heavy heart that we announce Homegrown 2020 will NOT be running this weekend. We are mindful that many of you have flights and accommodation that you may be able to save or change so we pushed to get an answer before the scheduled Government announcement. Based on the conversations with authorities and the advice given we will not be able to run this weekend.

As you can see by the photos, our team have been working very hard to do everything we can to forge ahead despite such uncertain times.

We are devastated and are looking at all options as to how we move forward. We will be postponing but as you can imagine the logistics of that are huge and we need to wait on Government advice for dates. As far as refunds go, unfortunately we don’t have a clear answer on that as there are many factors involved. We appreciate your patience as we work through all of this, and we will let you know as soon as we do.

We are so grateful for all of your support and sincerely apologise for all of the inconvenience.

Aroha nui,


Massive Kiwi acts including Shapeshifter, Mitch James, Shihad, L.A.B., Robinson, David Dallas, Stan Walker, Devilskin, Written by Wolves and Dragon have been named on the bill for Jim Beam Homegrown 2020.

Billed as ‘Kiwi Music’s biggest party’; Jim Beam Homegrown has become a national gathering celebrating Kiwi music and culture. Fans will come together on March 21st to enjoy 44 of our best bands and DJ’s across 5 stages on the beautiful Wellington Waterfront.

Shapeshifter (pictured) will bring their summer anthems to headline the Park Stage. Also on the bill are two acts who have gained massive momentum in the past year, L.A.B and Mitch James. The Park Stage will warm up with Sunshine Sound System, reggae legends Katchafire and chilled hip hop, rock, funk band Summer Thieves, along with Sons of Zion, Tomorrow People and DJ Sir-Vere.

Shihad (pictured) will enjoy a Wellington homecoming on the Rock Stage, joined by the ever popular Devilskin and Villainy. Two bands making their Homegrown debut are Written By Wolves and Zed who will be coming off the back of a sell-out tour celebrating 20 years of their hit album Silencer. Deadbeat, Skinny Hobos and Dead Favours will also be gracing the Rock Stage with their presence.

Australian-claimed but undeniably Kiwi act, Dragon is a surprise addition to the City Stage. The April Sun in Cuba stars will be supported by Kiwi favourites, Nesian Mystik, who are coming out of a long hiatus alongside Thomas Oliver, The Feelers and The Black Seeds. Fresh sounds will also grace the City Stage with Homegrown debutants Mako Road, nomad, Lepani and DJ Takas.

The Lab Stage will kick off with a slice of Kiwi Hip Hop featuring the sounds of Church & AP, David Dallas and Kings (pictured) before heading in a Pop direction with Sachi and headliners Stan Walker and break out artist Robinson. Savage, P Money and Illbaz also feature on the Lab Stage.

The increasingly popular electronic tent will feature Dan Aux and Sin alongside some of the best in the game. Montell2099 and duo Lee Mvtthews return and Drum and Bass legends Concord Dawn will square off back to back with P-Money as one of the main events on this stage. Also featuring in the electronic tent will be State of Mind, Flowidus and Clicks.

“Every year we have grown and evolved to keep up with demand. This year we will continue evolving and improving the festival but we’re also restricting ticket sales to make sure everyone has an incredible experience” says event organiser Andrew Tuck.

There has been a notable increase in demand for tickets this year and for the first time in recent history, we will not be increasing the festival's capacity to keep up with ticket demand. Another early sell-out is looking highly likely. Make sure you secure your tickets now to avoid missing out!They are on sale now at www.homegrown.net.nz

Jim Beam Homegrown celebrates who we are through our music with over 20,000 people coming together on the Wellington Waterfront on Saturday 21st, March 2020. Tickets and more information are available at www.homegrown.net.nz
