Parachute – pay what you can afford


Parachute Music is raising $100,000 to enable 500 disadvantaged families to attend Parachute Music Festival 2013.

23 years in the running, the iconic 3-day festival is held every January on Auckland Anniversary weekend, attracting around 20,000 people each year. Parachute Festival features around 100 local and international bands and an array of world-class speakers. The festival is drug and alcohol free with a strong youth and family attendance.

But not all families can afford to attend the event. In 2012, Parachute Music came up with the ‘Pay What You Can Afford’ initiative.

For every $200 donated on Parachute’s Givealittle page, one lucky family will be subsidised to attend the 2013 Festival.

Families selected for this awesome opportunity will only have to pay what they can afford, and coupled with funds raised Parachute will pick up the balance.

Parachute is urging its network of supporters and punters to get into the fundraising spirit and donate or set up their own Givealittle fundraising pages to support the cause.

Get involved with the ‘Pay what you can afford’ campaign at the cause page.

  1. this is very nice for a family to get into Parachute, I have brought a family ticket but now I don’t have transports to get there, so will you offer people like me transports to get up there……

    What about the single person who can’t afford to go as they don’t have a job or a decent income, are they forgotten. I know of a young man who would like to go with his father-in-law, his wife has just had a baby and on the unemployment benefit until he can find a job, people like them miss out………….
