Don't Miss out on Homegrown 2020!

Tickets may have sold out but Bayrock still has a double pass to give away!

In New Zealand we suffer from tall poppy syndrome, but sometimes it’s epic to celebrate some of our New Zealand born talent! Jim Beam Homegrown is the one opportunity we get each year to round up the crew, go on a roadie and celebrate some of our most talented performers all in one place - The Wellington Waterfront.

Tickets have completely sold out to the event, but the Backrock team have a double pass to give away. We would love to send you, here are some of the acts you could be watching live!!!


The alternative metal band formed in Hamilton. Their first album, released in 2014, reached No. 1 on the New Zealand Music charts and set the bar for more hit music over the next few years. During 2018 the group toured both New Zealand and UK.


This gr homegrown alternative rock band who took out the award for Rock Album/Artist three times at the NZ Music Awards. These guys have shared the stage with numerous local and international acts including AC/DC, Incubus, The Offspring, Billy Talent, Seether and Shihad.


Shapeshifter are a Drum and Bass act that have sold out shows across New Zealand and Overseas.

The group formed in 1999 after the founding members met at Jaz School down in Christchurch. In 2018 Jacinda Adern actually gifted the Shapeshifter CD “The System Is A Vampire” to Harry and Megan

during their trip to New Zealand.


L.A.B. was founded by the Kora brothers, Brad Kora on drums and Stu Kora who plays guitar and keyboard. The L.A.B. sound is one which has seen them quickly become a fan favourite on the New Zealand live circuit, the music has an authentic reggae/dub feel to it.

These are just a selection of the artists, that started their careers in New Zealand and have produced music that’s now on repeat across the country and overseas. They are all performing at Jim Beam Homegrown in date date date
