On Friday, I met Janne once more before she left.
But the big thing was of course Vodafone Homegrown, a festival with over 30 kiwi bands playing on 5 stages over 11 hours. I went with Meredith and her friend Zoey and it couldn’t have been a better festival experience, starting with the awesome weather, the fun atmosphere and of course the great music.
These are the bands I saw at least partly, in chronological order: Salmonella Dub, Ladi6, Sunshine Sound System, Cornerstone Roots, Opshop, Elemeno P, The Phoenix Foundation, The Black Seeds, The Mint Chicks, Tiki. There were also buskers, breakdancers, a Brazilian drum group and awesome fire poi to admire.
Here’s some more photos, music and video from the day:
