We are proud to be supporting CanTeen at Jim Beam Homegrown. The CanTeen Pop & RnB stage is located on the grass at Upper Frank Kitts Park overlooking the harbour and lagoon. It's a mean place for a stage and with the best Pop and RnB acts NZ has to offer, the line-up will match the venue. This year we are also opening up the raised area overlooking the lagoon so there will be more space to take in the performances and soak up the waterfront.

Line-up

  Nesian Mystik                  
If you look them up on Wikipedia it says "Nesian Mystik was a New Zealand Hip-Hop/R&B group which formed in 1999"; well the legends of Pacifican Infused Urban Beats are reforming for one VERY LAST SHOW. Homegrown will proudly play host to the boys so be there to send them off in style; and be schooled in Nesian 1 last time.
Savage                      
"Can you please give it up for Savaaggee!!!"... After absolutely smashing the Pop and RnB stage last year Savage is back to show why he has sold gold and platinum albums and become the first New Zealand hip hop artist in history to have a commercial single achieve platinum status in the United States.
P Money                      
From DJ wonder kid to established super producer, P-Money is among the rare few able to stay relevant across multiple years, genres and styles, while remaining true to their essence. Now blowing up in New York City after the signing and release of his 4th album, this guys making Aotearoa Hip Hop history. Be a part of it.
@Peace                      
@Peace is a project from Home Brew’s Tom Scott and Nothing To Nobody’s Lui Tuiasau. Although this is the first time on a stage at Homegrown this crew has being selling out venues to critical acclaim. Savvy word play, sultry beats and undeniable stage presence, a must see performance.
Smashproof                                      
Smashproof first catapulted to fame in 2009 when their debut single, ‘Brother’ (featuring Gin Wigmore) stayed #1 for an eternity. The new material from Tyree, Deach and Sid Diamond is also receiving huge acclaim and more goodness is on its way. They're pure talent and known for blowing up crowds cross-country.
Awa, PNC & PieterT                      
Former Nesian Mystik frontman; Awa joins forces with PNC and Pieter T for an exploration into soul, RnB and hip hop. With these three guys on stage anything could happen and most probably will. There's too much talent for it not to be good, it's just a question of who's on the mic at any point in time.                                                         
Swiss, Donell and Brownhill                                      
Tongan go Wellingtonian go GC expat Swiss is going from strength to strength with cut through hits like 'Slow Wind'. Joining him is the smooth & 'Memorable' Donell Lewis. And rounding out this epic stage clash is Brownhill to bring a roots reggae tone to the soul licks of Swiss & Donnell. This will be epic!
Dane Rumble                      
From Hip Hop to Pop and Rock, Dane Rumble has an incredible air for crafting popular classics that see him defy being pigeon holed. A consummate performer and prolific pop music icon both in NZ and AUS, 2013 is set to be another huge year for Dane and the release of his 3rd solo album.                                                                  
Jupiter Project                      
With their most recent guest performance on The X Factor New Zealand, things have been steadily shining bright for rising indie R&B duo. Jupiter Project match their soulful vocals with a brave, genre defying palette of production which has drawn comparison to a range of international artists, from Phoenix to Drake.                                                        
Benny Tipene - Acoustic                   
For many, Benny Tipene was the stand-out of NZ X Factor for character, down-to-earthness and of course talent. His single 'Walking On Water' debuted at No.2 on the NZ Charts and is certified gold. We can't wait to see this inspirational singer-songwriter bring his acoustic set to the Pop and RnB stage.                                                                
Marek                      
Wellington night life icon Marek has 15 years of global DJ experience under his belt. Within 2013 alone, alongside his multiple national residencies has also played headlining international support slots for Baauer, Lunice (of TNGHT), Lil B the Based God, Action Bronson and DJ Yoda.
