Parachute Festival returns for its 23rd year in 2013, promising another weekend-long heatwave of rock n' roll revelry. A bevy of international and local bands serving up a stunning cacophony of genres.
Please note that because Parachute 2013 is just days away, a credit card is now required to pre-purchase Parachute tickets. Don't have a credit card? No problem - you can buy an NZPost Prezzy card (just like a pre-paid credit card) from any NZ Post shop. Simply load it with enough money to cover your ticket and booking/delivery fee, and you can then purchase online or over the phone. For more details on how a Prezzy card works, click here
Online topups for Parachute 2013 ticket holders through the iTICKET website are strictly only available until 4PM Thursday 24 January, but you can top-up at a Parachute Tag Station on the weekend using cash and EFTPOS.
