2020 has forced everyone to think outside of the box to keep their business afloat. This pandemic took away festivals and shows from us, but the music community is figuring out ways to persevere.
One event that came about was drive-in raves. They have popped up all over the country and the world, and Insomniac is of course one of their producers. In June, they hosted what they called a Park N’ Rave in Arizona, featuring Seven Lions. It was a successful event, where everyone was able to respect the pandemic and each other and still have a good time. COVID restrictions have varied by state, so at that point in time, Arizona was the appropriate place to hold it.
Now, restrictions are loosening up depending on where you are in the country. Certain counties in California are doing better and climbing down the color-coded tiered system that Governor Newsom made. While we can’t have warehouse shows the way we used to, it is now possible for these drive-in raves to happen in Southern California.
Once again, those in SoCal are lucky because Insomniac is bringing its Park N’ Rave there. Not only that, but Pasquale has promised to make it a weekly event.
We are so excited to plan and bring to life this Park N’ Rave series for our loyal Headliners as we work hard to create safe and successful events. Stay tuned for more exciting Park N’ Rave announcements coming very soon.
The first Park N’ Rave is happening October 9th and 10th at our well-known and loved venue, the NOS Events Center in San Bernadino. Maceo Plex is the first artist on deck, playing from 8pm until midnight. It’ll be a night of non-stop dance music as well as a full production. Social distancing guidelines will be enforced during the event as well. Passes start at $200 for one GA vehicle pass with up to five people in your car. You have to be 18+ to attend.
While we don’t have the lineup for future Park N’ Raves, we know Insomniac and Pasquale to usually deliver. Tickets for the first event are now officially sold out so if you grabbed a ticket we’ll see you on the dance floor, kinda. Who else would you go to a drive-in rave to see? Let us know!
