WTF Will you be attending any drive-in concerts?

    I would try it at least once. :spin:

    A drive-in concert in Ostrava, Czech Republic on May 15, 2020.

    Thomas Turner keeps hearing the same question, one that’s on every music fan’s mind.

    “People keep asking me, ‘When the fuck are festivals and concerts coming back?’” he says. “I haven’t been able to tell them much, other than, ‘We’ll see.’”

    Now, the local electronic dance music promoter can give an answer. After months away, live music is slowly returning to the Valley with drive-in concerts. As traditional venues remain in limbo, shows are happening at shopping centers or drive-ins with fans in their cars listening as performances are broadcast over low-power FM transmitters.

    Bob Bentley, co-owner of Digital Drive-In in Mesa, has booked a few concerts since the theater’s debut in April and says it's tapping into a substantial demand. (Case in point: The initial wave of tickets for this weekend’s show by jam-rock band Spafford at his drive-in sold out minutes after going on sale.)

    Tickets are also moving fast for Road Rave Arizona, a drive-in EDM festival on Saturday, May 30, at Wild Horse Motorsports Park in Chandler co-promoted by Turner’s company Relentless Beats along with Live Nation and DJ superstar Carnage.

    Turner’s pleased with the response but was initially lukewarm to drive-in concerts because of the overly involved setup, like enforcing social distancing. (The financial risks of running a show during a pandemic also didn’t help.) It took cajoling from Carnage to get him onboard.

    Concerts by the Carload: Live Nation Looks to Take Drive-In Shows Bigger This Summer
    Keith Urban's glee at performing for socially distanced fans at a drive-in theater in Tennessee may soon be shared by more major artists, as a Live Nation plan to use amphitheater parking areas for shows could bring the automotive concert concept into the mainstream.

    There is a drive in movie theater about 10 mins from my house. Might go there. Concert seems stupid.

    This sounds as exciting as sitting in the back of a minivan watching a DVD of a concert video. Meaning not at all.

    "There is no live stream, no VIP Zoom experience .
    that can replace that feeling of being present in a space and listening to your favorite songs with other people." :secret:
