First 'Drive In' Concert for The Coast!

Central Coast Council will present a 'drive in' concert to bring the magic of a live music event back to the Coast in a way that meets current COVID-19 restrictions.

'Live at the Drive In' is a first for the Central Coast and will feature the modern blues genius of headliner Ash Grunwald and local support Elaskia performing to audience members sitting comfortably and safely in their own cars.

Council Unit Manager Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard said he was excited about the Central Coast hosting a 'drive in' event.

"Who doesn't love a 'drive in' movie? Essentially we're taking the same model and creating a 'drive in' concert featuring national and local artists," Mr Cannard said.

"So many of us have really missed live music during these challenging times and this will be a really fun and different event for the Coast.

"Headliner Ash Grunwald is not to be missed - without a doubt one of Australia's finest storytellers and live performers.

"'Live at the Drive In' is another way we are thinking outside the box to deliver events for the Coast during this challenging time.

"Drive in events are growing in popularity around Australia and have become an important channel for supporting our music industry.

"This free event is on Sunday 1 November and pre-registrations are now open via Eventbrite. Due to limited car spaces a ballot will be used to randomly select drivers, with lucky winners able to redeem a ticket for their vehicle."

Mayor Lisa Matthews said Council was building the Coast's reputation as an event hub despite difficult circumstances.

"There is something nostalgic and uniquely fun about a 'drive in' experience - especially when you're 'driving-in' to see incredible live music," Mayor Matthews said.

"Events with our beautiful Central Coast as the backdrop are hard to top and it is so exciting to be able to offer a new physical event that can be delivered in a COVID-safe format."

Event attendees will be required to stay in their car for the duration of the event and no walk-ins will be permitted.

'Live at the Drive In' is taking place on Sunday 1 November from 3-5pm at a venue to be revealed only to ticketholders. Spaces are limited, and only drivers in possession of a ticket will be permitted entry.
