Homegrown – Wellington Waterfront April 7, 2018

With 45 acts, five stages and a stunning harbour vistas the Capital’s best day out for music fans promised a great party to close off an exceptional summer.  Now in its 11th year this sold out festival has rightly earned its iconic status, alongside Laneway, Rhythm & Vines, the former Big Day Out and Splore, among others.  It’s also the best way to see the greatest number of Kiwi bands all in one place.  So, did it live up to the reputation?  Tim Gruar packed a rain jacket, his notepad and his camera to head along and find out.
