Choosing Which Music Festival to Attend

Last year, thousands of people were sad to see the christian music festival Parachute crash with no hope of revival. Parachute made this announcement right after the final festival. The attendees were none the wiser. No one had a chance to buy tickets to the final festival. It was done.

In it’s leave, two opportunistic event planners stepped up to take their place. However these festivals didn’t set out to cooperate and share good christian music. Not even close. These two festivals wanted to replace Parachute as the world’s largest Christian music festival outside of the U.S. So they both announced they were on the same weekend.

For those who struggled to choose, Online Brands collated the data in one useful table:

However these aren’t the only options for music festivals in New Zealand. Those in Palmerston North can enjoy Esplanade Sunday concerts in a friendly cafe till the middle of Autumn. There is also a winery tour featuring local music played in vineyards. There’s also a vibrant festival dedicated entirely to electronic music and performing arts!

Whatever your taste in music is, a music festival somewhere in New Zealand is likely to have it. Event Finder should be your main resource for comparing New Zealand music festivals.
