Next to the Dub & Roots stage in Waitangi Park and you can move between the two area's without having to finish your drink, check your bag or go through security. There's room in the massive maquee for 2,500 people so there's loads of space and whatever the weather we've got it sorted. This year are are also make the bar 50% bigger and adding more food options.


State of Mind & MC Woody                                      
State of Mind have carved out a place as one of New Zealand’s most prolific and successful Drum and Bass acts both at home and abroad. The boys are taking things to the next level with Wellington based, ball-of-energy MC Woody in the mix for the closing set on the Lipton stage at Jim Beam Homegrown 2014.
Optimus Gryme ft MC Tiki                      
Charlie Brown aka Optimus Gryme personifies the massive drums and huge basslines of dubstep. He infuses elements of 90's Jungle, being mashed up and re-packaged in a different way, and tempo. Live he is outstanding! Joining him are guests Misfits of Zion and the unstopable MC Tiki; a true legend on the mic no matter what the genre.
Misfits of Zion                    
MOZ produce bass heavy eDM and in a short but fast rising career she has collaborated with BASS MECHANIX, PIMP BIZKIT and their recent collaboration with OPTIMUS GRYME has just been signed to MINISTRY OF SOUND for inclusion in their SessioNZ compilation; released March. Get the full lowdown at Homegrown.                                                       
The Upbeats                      
They have toured the globe and torn-up dancefloors from Russia to San Francisco. With a star-studded list of collaberations (incl. Shapeshifter to Noisia to Bassnectar) The Upbeats are in full command of their craft; which by definition is assisting you to LOOSE YOUR SH#T on the dancefloor. Prepare to get crazy...
P Money vs Dick Johnson                      
Have they ever gone head to head? Not that we can remember and there's no doubt that this will be a set to be remembered and not to be missed. No style or genre is off limits and with these 2 seasoned pros of Hip Hop and House meeting behind the decks it is going to be amazing.
Weird Together                      
The new studio project spurred on by Nick D's love of exotic music from all corners of the globe, and Dick Johnson's love of sculpting that music into solid dance grooves. Caribbean Steel Pan Orchestras, Burundian drum ensembles, Sudanese vocalists and Ghanian master percussionists and that's just the beginning!
After two friends from the Mount decided to take their mutual love of dance music to the masses we have been blessed with the ridiculously catchy debut single Viva la Piano. PleasePlease are going from strength to strength andwill be playing their first ever show at Homegrown this year.
