The Rock line-up in TSB Bank Arena will make for a pretty epic day. We've made a few changes to the venue layout and improved the outdoor bar, chill-out and smoking area so you don't have to leave the security area if you want some fresh air

Also check out the Red Bull Lab for performances from Cairo Knife Fight, Beastwars and The Adults.


Blacklistt have just released their new self-titled album and as expected it's pretty epic! With a nationwide album release tour set to sell out, they are back in full swing and set to dominate the NZ rock scene. They always smash it at Homegrown and with a huge back catalogue and an assault of new tracks it will be massive!

Gin Wigmore                      
5 NZ music awards, multi platinum albums, 1.6 million youtube views for the single 'Black Sheep', international song writing awards, Heineken/James Bond ads, a huge US tour including a spot on the Ellen show with an estimated 4 million viewers!
It's Gin's 1st appearance at Homegrown and we're pretty happy she's on the bill.

The Feelers                      
Not to be outdone, The Feelers have had a bit sucess as well. A quarter of a million albums sold, five multi platinum albums, three number one albums, seven number one singles and more radio airplay than any other New Zealand artist or band since radio stats began in 1999. What else do you need to say? Bring on Homegrown and bring on The Feelers!

With a platinum selling catalogue of albums, Jason Kerrison and OPSHOP have firmly lodged themselves into New Zealand’s musical lexicon with an ever-growing list of accolades. Now, armed with some new material alongside their classic hits, the band are back and ready to head out and own it on the Homegrown Rock stage.
Head Like a Hole                      
Head Like A Hole are kiwi rock gods! From crazy antics at shows, to roof top music videos or legendary sold out tours, not many bands do it like these guys! At Homegrown they will be willing and ready. We know what they're capable of, you know what they're capable of... just make sure you're there to see it.
Hamilton based heavy rockers Devilskin are the real deal! They have guts, class, kudos and confidence. They know what they want and their music is in your face pure heavy rock, with unreal vocals from Jennie Skulander, killer guitar, bass and drums and a theatrical twist that dominates any stage they grace.                                                              
Villainy are back at Homegrown armed with an album that debuted at number one on the New Zealand Top 40 and features three massive  hits - The Answer, Gather Yourselves and Alligator Skin. The ferocious and energetic sound they've created on the album is even bigger louder harder and faster on stage. Make sure you don't miss them!                                                 

Fire at Will                      
Springing into action only a short time ago this 5-piece heavy rock group have made waves in the local rock scene and gained support from NZ on Air. With the release of their debut 10-track album and rotation on The Rock and Hauraki these boys are proving unstoppable. They will provide the perfect way to kick off the Jim Beam Rock Stage!

Individual Stage Capacity

Each stage has a limited capacity and during the day access is on a
first come first serve basis.

Tickets to Jim Beam Homegrown are strictly limited and we're keeping numbers down to try and make sure everybody can see the bands they want to see, but if you've got a favourite band it can't hurt to get there a little early just in case.
