Homelanz 2012 Set to be a Massive Southern Hemisphere Celebration

The annual Homelanz event is taking place on Saturday 16 June in London’s Boston Manor Park. This popular one-day London festival is all about celebrating the Southern Hemisphere: its culture, entertainment, music and cuisine.

Aussies, Kiwis and South Africans can reminisce about home. The rest of the world can enjoy an authentic Southern Hemisphere experience – all in a friendly, convenient, leafy corner of West London.

This year, 13 bands will play on two stages. The headliners are KORA from New Zealand, Prime Circle from South Africa and Alex Lloyd from Australia. Other acts include I Am Giant, Anna Coddington, Rietta, and Bowie Jane. For the full line-up, see the Entertainment section of the Homelanz website.

Concert-goers will also be able to sample the best in Southern Hemisphere food, beer and wine. Various UK restaurants known for their authentic Southern Hemisphere cuisine will be at the festival, including several that are owned and managed by internationally-renowned chefs. And wine exhibitors will be showcasing the diversity of their regions, with a number of smaller producers as well as the big names.

There will be a village with information and support services for travellers, migrants and expats. Other extras will include a silent disco and a chill-out zone.
