Tickets to Parallels will also include access to the official after party, which is being hosted by Massive Monster (Cult of the Lamb). This will however be an 18+ event so proof of ticket and ID will be required before entry.
Further details about the after party will be announced very soon.

In addition to tickets going live, we have also released a collection of Parallels 2022 merch!
Currently we have a bespoke tote and tshirt designed by Cole at Paper House. The shirts are a pre-order as we want to make sure the size quantity is correct, but the totes will be available at the event!

You can bundle a tote with your ticket at a discounted prices, or head over to the Paper House Shop and pick what you like.


We still have a lot more in store and will be doing a bunch of announcements leading up to the event, so please keep your eyes on our socials and website! Thank you to everyone for their on-going support!
