Kiwi music’s biggest party will celebrate its 12th year on March 23rd 2019. Organizers have adjusted the festival site across its five Wellington Waterfront stages to cater for demand as tickets for the event are selling 40% quicker than last year’s record sell out. The additions to the line-up in this announcement mean that another sell out is expected even earlier for the 2019 festival.
The grassy expanse of Waitangi Park plays host to the biggest stage featuring; Shapeshifter, the mighty Kora, chart toppers Sons Of Zion and a feast of reggae including, Katchafire, Three Houses Down ft. General Fiyah, House Of Shem, and thanks to Sunshine Sound System and DJ Sir-Vere, the Dub & Roots Stage will be serving up some serious summer vibes.
Just opposite Waitangi Park, you’ll hit the Electronic Marquee featuring the biggest electronic line-up Jim Beam Homegrown has ever hosted. With extended capacity, this stage will feature the biggest names in NZ dance music including, Quix, Montell2099, Lee Mathews, Chores and Jon Lemmon who will be joined by Aroha ft. MC Tali, General Lee and Cymbol. Plenty of bass in the place will keep the tent heaving across the day.
As you stroll down the waterfront promenade, past the carnival rides and food vendors, you’ll find the new outdoor Rock stage where the sound will be cranking for the most talked about reunion in Kiwi Rock, Blindspott is back together and will tear it up alongside Devilskin, Villany, The Feelers, Racing, Dead Favours and Skinny Hobos.
A little further along you’ll find the always popular Lab Stage, boasting a mega line-up in 2019 where Broods, Stan Walker, Kings and Home Brew will play alongside Mitch James, P Money, Savage, SWIDT and JessB.
