Where do I get my Wrsitband? (you can swap them from 11am) Yes you can have the tickets on your phone.

You will need to swap your ticket for a wristband that will get you in and out of the different stages during the day. These wristbands will be available from 2 locations

  • At the Jervois Quay entrance to lower Frank Kitts Park (back of the TSB)
  • At the Dub & Roots Stage entrance at Waitangi Park (behind Te Papa)

NB: The Ticketing Tents will shut at 8pm, if you arrive after this you'll need to go the Site Office behind Te Papa.

NB: You will be REFUSED ENTRY if you are INTOXICATED from alcohol or drugs (last the distance).

Photo ID - the ONLY acceptable options for 18+ wristbands are:

  • Current NZ Drivers Licence
  • Current Passport (expired not accepted)
  • 18+ card

If you don't have one of these forms of photo ID you will be given an under 18 wristband, no exceptions, it's the law, sorry!

ID - For Under 18s (if you haven't registered you can register on the day when you get your wristband)

  • Birth Certificate
  • Student ID
  • New Zealand passport or Overseas passport
  • New Zealand driver's license

Ticket names not matching photo ID?  - The name on the ticket doesn't matter

Under 18 tickets vs. Over 18 ticket - the type of ticket doesn't matter just bring your ID for the correct wristband

Haven't received your ticket from Eventbrite? Probably typo in your email - contact info@homegrown.net.nz


  • The majority of stalls will have EFTPOS facilities but won;t hurt to bring some cash
  • There two ATM's on site - one at the front of the TSB Bank Arena and one in the Dub & Roots stage area

What can we bring?

You can bring into the event an unopened bottle of water (no glass - there is a big Pump refill station in the Market Area) & reasonable amounts of food without problems. NB: NO food or drinks are allowed to be brought into the TSB Bank Arena (Rock Stage) - their rules sorry. 

Check the back of your ticket for restricted items such as video cameras (small cameras are fine), alcohol & umbrella's - we have no provision to check them sorry.  NOTHING ILLEGAL!!
