Organizers of the drive-in concert series say the event is a “unique opportunity to safely enjoy live music from some of New Orleans’ favorite artists while following social distancing guidelines,” according to a release.

A Car Pass provides a 20ft x 17ft parking space for a standard vehicle and entry for the number of passengers the vehicle legally seats. Each parking spot will have clearly labeled boundaries, including a dedicated tailgating space to enjoy the concert outside of your car with a six-foot cushion between neighbors to provide safe distancing.

Concessions will not be sold on-site, so fans are allowed to bring their own prepared food and non-glass beverages along with blankets and chairs to set up in their personal tailgate party space.

Fans will be treated to full-electric sets from a stage set up in the parking lot, featuring LED screens and full amplified sound. An FM radio channel will also be available for listening inside the vehicle.

Additionally, each parking spot will have a PayPal QR code on display for attendees to purchase event and artist merch touch-free, and each purchase made using PayPal or Venmo will come with a free limited-edition poster. Merch will then be delivered to your space during the concert, or you can have it shipped to your home.

Organizers say they will donate 100 percent of net proceeds of all merch sales to Crew Nation, a global relief fund for live music crews.

Fans are required to wear masks, unless in designated tailgate space. Organizers say CDC, State of Louisiana and City of New Orleans guidelines will be followed to ensure a safe and enjoyable event.
