“The team at Parachute International helped me to raise the level of professionalism of our events by bringing experience and knowledge to the site build and event operations all while mainting a fun, excitable and inclusive attitude. “
Rhett McLaren
Event Co-director – The Hills Are Alive & NYE on the HILL Festivals.


The Parachute International Team were proud to return to the Farm in 2016. After 3 years of involvement, the organisers engaged Parachute International to provide full coverage of Event, Site & Safety Management of the Build, Event and Break.

The Festival
Nestled in some amazing countryside, this boutique music festival is in its 8th year, and growing steadily each year, to give its participants a truly unique weekend of music in beautiful Gippsland.

Humble Beginnings
The festival started with just a few hundred friends and family and previously to this year, required a password to buy a ticket. This year, tickets were opened to the public and it once again sold out. It was important to the promoter to maintain the community feeling on the site, and Parachute worked closely with the promoter to bring the site infrastructure, event management procedures and operations up to professional standard without affecting the patron experience.

What’s it like?
The video below gives you an idea of the beautiful surroundings and amazing family friendly, and community vibe that exists on this wonderful site.
