Live music back drive-in gigs


CINEMAS and live music venues may still be out of bounds but Scots will still be able to enjoy some entertainm­ent this summer.

A series of drive-in events will include movies, ‘car-a-oke’ sing-alongs, bingo, silent discos, live bands, quizzes, comedy and food, all with social distancing measures in place.

The Parking Lot Social festivitie­s will be in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Perth, Dundee and Inverness in August and September and will cater for up to 250 cars each night. A ‘Social Kids’ event will have an earlier start time.

Audio will be transmitte­d to vehicles via wireless headphones and a dedicated FM radio channel.

Josh Kinnersley, of organisers XL Event Lab, said: ‘It really feels like everyone could do with a bit of fun.’
