Concert In Your Car kicks off June 4-7 with Eli Young Band, Whiskey Myers, Pat Green, and Josh Abbot & Kevin Fowler at Globe Life Stadium in Arlington, Texas. As reported by Billboard, the bands will play on a stage in the parking lot while fans watch the show from the socially distant safety of their cars while listening on their car radios by dialing into a specific FM frequency available only onsite.
Tickets are $40 per car on sale Friday May 15 and must be purchased in advance. The shows are capped at 400 cars with every other parking space left open.
In an effort to make the shows as contact-free as possible, no concessions or merchandise will be sold on site. Ticket scanners, parking attendants and security will all wear personal protective equipment and bathroom attendants will allow only one person into the facilities at a time with the bathrooms’ surfaces disinfected after each use. Fans must stay inside their cars and will not be allowed to sit outside their car or in a truck bed.
Stay in & jam out with us at Globe Life Field on June 4! Tickets go on sale for @QuikTrip‘s Concert in Your Car this Friday at 10AM.

To protect the acts, all bands will play acoustically with members standing at least six feet from each other and minimal crew members will be used. By design, all four acts are from Texas with the farthest coming from Austin. “None of these people have to take 12-hour bus rides or airplanes to get there. We didn’t want anyone to travel a great distance,” artist manager/event organizer George Couri says.
