Shapeshifter, Fat Freddy's Drop and Anika Moa are among the first acts announced for the 11th incarnation of Wellington's Jim Beam Homegrown festival in 2018.
The New Zealand music festival will take over Wellington's waterfront on April 7, 2018, with 45 acts performing across five stages.
The Jim Beam Dub n Roots stage features a stellar roster that boasts Shapeshifter and Fat Freddy's Drop, as well as Kora, Katchafire and DJ Sir-Vere.
A revamp of the festival layout has seen the addition of the "City Stage", which promises a more laid-back experience with performances from Kiwi legends such as Dave Dobbyn, Anika Moa, Che Fu & the Kratez, Hollie Smith and Aaradhna.
