Jim Beam Homegrown is Kiwi Music’s Biggest Party! The festival brings together thousands of New Zealand music fans and over 40 of Aotearoa’s best bands and DJs celebrating all music genres from; Reggae, Roots and Hip Hop to Rock, Pop, Electronic, and Drum & Bass across 5 massive stages. With carnival rides, heaps of delicious food options, and interactive experiences, Jim Beam Homegrown is the perfect way to send this summer festival season off with a bang! Jim Beam Homegrown is unique in that you can come and go from the festival at any time with our free-flow stages dotted across the beautiful Wellington Waterfront, allowing you to enjoy everything the capital has to offer. At Jim Beam Homegrown everyone is treated with respect and Aroha; nothing is a problem – we can’t wait to see you!
