Artists including Ladi6, Ria Hall, and Trinity Roots will join the 41 acts that were set to play this year’s event, which was postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

After having to postpone this year’s festival, slated for March, Homegrown is back with a new stage, ten new acts, and 2,500 more tickets.
