South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Parachute Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers are of­fer­ing Pay What You Can Af­ford fam­ily passes to any fam­ily who wants to at­tend the 2012 fes­ti­val but can­not af­ford to.

The ini­tia­tive will give strug­gling fam­i­lies an op­por­tu­nity to at­tend the fes­ti­val at Mys­tery Creek on Jan­uary 27 to Jan­uary 30 at a price of their choos­ing.

Parachute founder Mark de Jong said the re­cent years had been fi­nan­cially dif­fi­cult for New Zealan­ders.

Of­fi­cials agreed that they wanted peo­ple to ex­pe­ri­ence a great, fam­ily-friendly drug- and al­co­hol-free event.

Pay What You Can Af­ford tick­ets are avail­able from now un­til the fes­ti­val.

Fam­i­lies who can­not af­ford a nor­mal ticket will also be able to buy passes at the fes­ti­val gate on fes­ti­val week­end for a do­na­tion.

NEW INI­TIA­TIVE: This week’s Parachute Fes­ti­val will of­fer spe­cial fam­ily passes.
