With an impressive 7 stages, Jim Beam Homegrown has beefed up its line-up with a further 22 acts. Bands new to the bill include Kora,  Katchafire, I Am Giant, Villainy, Jamie McDell, Deceptikonz, @Peace, The Upbeats, Midnight Gallery, Drax Project and the Wellington super-group, Bongmaster. After the massive first announcement and a mad rush on early bird tickets the scene is set for March 7th to be Kiwi music’s biggest day of the summer!

This year the Dub and Roots stage will lose the marquee and utilise a massive open air stage to accommodate a truly epic line-up. Summer festival legends, Shapeshifter, Six60 and Kora will be joined by feel-good favourites, Katchafire, Tahuna Breaks, Tomorrow People, Sunshine Soundsystem, and DJ Sir-Vere.

The Rock stage is the strongest it has been in years with the mighty Shihad leading out Blacklistt, Devilskin, I Am Giant, Villainy, Black River Drive, Silence the City and rock album of the year nominee; Ekko Park.

The Red Bull Sound Lab reads like a festival in its own right. Headlining are a reunited Bongmaster, the current incarnation includes Iain Gordon, DJ Mu and Dallas Tamaira from Fat Freddy’s, Trinity Root’s Warren Maxwell, Te Reo music pioneer Maaka McGregor, drumming legend Andreas Lepper and the super talented Aaron Tokona. Also in the mix are; Laughton and Brad Kora (L.A.B), Rhombus in Dub and Brockaflowersaurus Rex; as is the silky smooth Donell Lewis who joins forces with 9-piece reggae band Brownhill. The bill is rounded off by collaborations from Raiza Biza, Young Tapz and Mzwetwo and Diaz Grim ft. PNC, Spycc and INF.

The neighbouring Pop and RnB stage starts the day with Jetski Safari, Jaime McDell, Ginny Blackmore and Benny Tipene. Local beat master, DJ Marek will transition into P Money, Sammy J, Sid Diamond (formally Young Sid) and highly anticipated performances from David Dallas and the Deceptikonz!

The Lipton Ice Tea stage delivers a banging mix of the new and old; with Concord Dawn, Opiuo, The Upbeats, Dan Aux and Beat Mob. PDiggg’s and Sambora from Shapeshifter unleash The Peacekeepers featuring MC Tiki and PNC, and George FM’s Clarke and Aroha will collaborate on a rare set together.

New to the festival in 2015 is the free to the public Promenade Stage. The intriguing line-up already includes Tiki Taane playing an acoustic set, young rappers Randa and Kid n Rei, hip-hop funk duo J Brown and the Mic Smith,  NZ music award finalist K+Lab and mystical hip-hop groups Third3ye and Midnight Gallery.

Also free to the public, the Locally Sourced Stage will showcase the critically acclaimed Estere, Drax Project and Black City Lights, local beat head Pea Stew, rising stars Ash Graham and Nomad and the honed talents of The Bone$ and A Girl named Mo.

Jim Beam Homegrown 2015 will be huge! Early birds have already gone at break-neck speed. Tickets are available from www.homegrown.net.nz.  Don’t miss out!
