Wellington’s iconic 100% Kiwi music festival, Jim Beam Homegrown promises to deliver something for everyone with 5 full stages, each one a different genre. The 2024 line-up is brimming with first-timers, festival favourites and fresh new talent.

L.A.B make their much-anticipated return along with other beloved Kiwi legends, Stan WalkerSons of Zion, Ladi6, Katchafire, David Dallas, Home Brew, and the mighty Kora.

Making their Jim Beam Homegrown debut are two of Aotearoa’s most recognisable voices, legendary singer-songwriter Bic Runga and the incomparable Teeks. Other debutants include Coterie, Alien WeaponryKaylee BellMuroki, Georgia Lines, Rubi Du1814 and Lady Shaka.

Amongst the buffet of acts is Tom Scott’s Avantdale Bowling Club. The sophisticated blend of hip-hop and jazz will be the perfect soundtrack to watch the sun go down at the chilled City Stage. Also new to the stage is Riiki Reid who will be taking the stage before Muroki.

Tom Scott fans will also get to enjoy his infamous earlier musical incarnation – Home Brew. The original hip-hop mavericks recently sold out two Auckland shows in a matter of hours. In a first for Scott, he will be fronting both bands with only a couple of hours between sets.

The newly revamped supersized marquee for the Electronic Stage will be back and no doubt filled to capacity with the likes of State of MindLee Mvtthews, Montell2099, Flowidus, and Sin & Brook on the decks. And Rock fans will be equally stoked with the return of Blindspott, DevilskinHead Like a HoleDead Favours, and Volts.

It would not be a Jim Beam Homegrown without a set from Hip-Hop icon Savage. The Australian based, 2 x platinum artist has been added to the Lagoon Stage line-up to play with Cassie Henderson, Church & AP, Georgia Lines, Coterie and Sons of Zion.

Because Jim Beam Homegrown showcases over 45 Kiwi acts it is not unusual for band and crew members to be involved in more than one act. It is however rare for the lead singer to get shuffled between stages.

Having tweaked the site layout every year for the last 16 sell-out festivals, organisers are promising the slick, seamless, friendly experience the event is famous for.

“We are stoked with how strong the line-up is over all 5 stages. As well as the big names, there’s a lot of fresh new acts making a mark; it feels like Kiwi music is going from strength to strength, which is awesome to be saying 17 years on!” explains event organiser Andrew Tuck.

Jim Beam Homegrown has transcended from being a mere festival; it has become iconic, a tradition and testament to the shared love for New Zealand music among Kiwis.
