Phoebe Hurst at Homegrown

With a sell-out of 17,000 in attendance Homegrown is Wellington’s biggest one-day music festival and has been held annually since 2008. The festival is set along the picturesque waterfront hosting 45 bands on six stages – each having its own musical flavour, from Pop, to RnB, to Electronic. During this sunny Saturday, the waterfront turned into a festival playground, with attractions including breakdancing competitions, a food market, street performers, interactive activities, art installations and graffiti artists.

A new inclusion at Homegrown 2014 was the ‘Locally Souced Stage’ which was located in the Lower Frank Kitts Park Amphitheatre. It showcased an eclectic mix of local artists such as Vanessa Stacey, The Digg, Eb & Sparrow, Paddy FredTotems,  and Phoebe Hurst – all for free to the public!

When Phoebe Hurst and her band got on stage around 5pm, it was still warm and sunny in the Amphitheatre. People were chilling out on the steps surrounding the setup, until the quirk-hip-pop songstress started performing. It was the first show of her brand new, high-energy live set including her single track Back To Mine which she released in November 2013. With her soulful voice, lyrical wit and energy Phoebe is definitely one of Wellington’s upcoming, brilliant musical talents.
