Police say ‘Dont be fooled by ticket scams’

Summer tends to be a high point for music lovers, with festivals, big-ticket stadium gigs and outdoor concerts throughout the warmer months. But Police are reminding Homegrown festival goers to be aware of ticket scams.

A police spokesperson says “the types of scams vary the tickets could be fake, you might pay cash but never receive a ticket, or the ticket may differ from what you thought you were buying.

“Remember, don’t buy goods like tickets from anyone who you are unsure about, never pay money into another account without verifying who the account belongs to, and lastly if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

Police have contacted Homegrown organisers, who advise that Tixel is the only official reseller of Homegrown tickets.

Meanwhile the full line-up for Homegrown 2019 has been announced. Incredible Kiwi talent such as Mitch James, Savage, P-Money, Three Houses Down, Opshop and Villainy have been added to an already impressive bill including, Shapeshifter, Dave Dobbyn, Blindspott, Broods, Stan Walker, Sons Of Zion, Kora, The Black Seeds, Quix, The Upbeats, Elemeno-P and another 25 acts.

Kiwi music’s biggest party will celebrate its 12th year on March 23rd 2019.
