Plans for UK-wide drive-in gigs announced

A series of drive-in concerts are to take place across the UK this summer, promoters Live Nation have announced.

The likes of Ash, Dizzee Rascal, The Lightning Seeds and Gary Numan, have all signed up to play at the "Live From The Drive-In" events.

Outdoor spaces in Birmingham, Liverpool, London will play host, as well as Edinburgh, Bristol and beyond.

The 300-car gigs have been designed to provide a safe alternative to the many events that have been cancelled.

The concert series, which will also feature The Streets and Tony Hadley, will run from mid-July until September, while music venues continue talks with the government about how and when they might reopen in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

More than 400 grassroots venues are facing permanent closure, according to the Music Venue Trust, which says the situation for many concert halls is "dire".

It has warned the UK government that an immediate cash injection of £50m is needed to prevent mass closures in July, August and September.

The organisation has also called for a one-off cut in VAT on ticket sales for the next three years; and is running a campaign to raise money for threatened venues.

Initiatives include a virtual festival in Bristol this weekend, with artists like Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Beth Rowley aiming to hit £20,000 in donations.
