Just been to parachute this weekend and had a blast!
If you guys are wondering what parachute is, it is the largest christian music festival in the southern hemisphere. Approximately 25,000 people were there I think which is huge for little NZ and maybe not for ya Yankees and Brits.
It is a festival held over 4 days with numerous bands from around the world. The main band was Switchfoot who was awesome live on Saturday night, others I liked included Leeland and Newworldson. I only went for Saturday evening and all day Sunday...though Sunday it rained heavily at times but still didn't stop us :)
It is cool to go to places like that because you can hear your favourites and also find new bands such as Leeland and Newworldson.
Here are a couple of samples:
