Denmark Introduces ‘Drive-in Concerts’ During Coronavirus Pandemic
Denmark has introduced “drive-in concerts” as a workaround for live music during the coronavirus pandemic.
Hundreds of drivers kept it in park as they enjoyed the tunes of Danish singer-songwriter Mads Langer at a sold-out performance in Aarhus, Denmark.
The 500 tickets were sold within minutes after the concert was announced on just six days’ notice, Forbes reported.
“I’ve played many concerts in my life, but this is really a first,” Langer said from the stage to rows of neatly aligned cars that fanned out across a field.
Langer’s performance was broadcast into the cars via FM radio and attendees could interact with him through a Zoom video conference.
The concert was the first in a series of performances at the space on the outskirts of the city, with the stage also doubling as a drive-in movie theater on other nights.

“I’m trying to adapt to the new reality as a performing artist and hopefully spread a little sunshine in your cars,” Langer posted on Instagram.
