With the thought of no live concerts happening anywhere anytime soon, the Danish city of Aarhus recently held a drive-in concert, which could possibly be an indicator of the future of live music.
While most of the world in some form of lockdown and strict social distancing guidelines due to the coronavirus, it’s unclear how live events will look over the next few months.
Mads Langer Holds Live Drive-In Concert
Danish singer-songwriter Mads Langer recently held a live concert on a newly-constructed stage. This space will be home to numerous drive-in events in the weeks ahead.
When the concert was announced, the 500 allotted tickets sold out within minutes. Clearly residents were longing for some form of entertainment outside of their homes.
Langer’s performance was transmitted into vehicles via FM radio. Attendees could also interact with Langer through Zoom.
Langer said: “I’ve played many concerts in my life, but this is really a first.”
Crowd Adhering to Social Distancing
Reports say the crowd adhered to the area’s social distancing restrictions for the most part.
Christian Friis of the Østjyllands Police told a local newspaper “There are only positive messages from our people on the spot. It has been controlled. People have behaved the way they should, and all the cars were out of place within half an hour.”
With experts predicting that live concerts as we know it could possibly only start happening until the fall of 2021, this could well be the short term solution.
