Final Homegrown Acts Announced

Is this all we've got? Shihad and the Feelers? I'm also wonder just how 'internationally renowned' DJ Recloose actually is. All those top 10 hits, I'm sure.

On April 26 the Wellington Waterfront will host Vodafone Homegrown with the most impressive line-up of Kiwi music you'll see in 2008.
Set across 5 stages along the waterfront, New Zealand's premier bands and DJ's will be rocking the Capital from 1pm to 11pm.

The final 16 acts have been confirmed for Vodafone Homegrown topping off arguably the strongest line-up of Kiwi bands and DJ's ever seen. Set on the Wellington Waterfront the inaugural Vodafone Homegrown festival features 5 stages packed with our finest homegrown music and with so much talent on show it won't be easy deciding which acts to watch.

The two side by side Jim Beam rock stages boast a who's who of kiwi rock including Shihad, Pluto, Kora, The Feelers, Op Shop, Elemeno- P, The Valves, Goodnight Nurse and Autozamm. With Shihad's new album due out in early April, it's looking like it will be one hell-of-a homecoming and album release party for the locals!

The heavyweight Cadbury Moro Dub and Roots line-up features legends Salmonella Dub, The Black Seeds, Tiki, Cornerstone Roots, Mike Fabulous, Little Bushman and the luscious Ladi6.

On the Indie Stage, The Mint Chicks, The Checks, Motocade and eclectic Wellington 6-piece The Phoenix Foundation are joined by So So Modern, The Rabble and The Coshercot Honeys.

The Samsung Electronic Stage line-up of Concord Dawn, Minuit, Dick Johnson and Tim Phin has been boosted with Wellington's DJ Takas, internationally renowned DJ Recloose pairing up with hip hop MC Tyna and high energy funk/jungle/reggae crowd favourites Sunshine Sound System.

In addition to the music there will be a national 3 on 3 break dancing competition and an assortment of peripheral entertainment, interactive activities, art installations and street performers.
