ORLANDO, Fla. – As coronavirus cases continue to rise around the world and right here in Central Florida, concerts and other events have been placed on hold to avoid spreading the respiratory disease.
Drive-ins have become the new way for us to socialize and partake in the festivities without gathering in large groups.
From churches holding drive-in services, to movie theaters showing the newest releases outside, drive-ins have become popular again.
Now, the first North American festival at a drive-in is coming to Central Florida.
Headlined by DJ Carnage, Road Rave will be held on June 6 at The Central Florida Fairgrounds, according to Bad Feeling Magazine.
The festival lineup also features Riot Ten, Blunts & Blondes, Nitti Gritti, and Gravedgr.
Carnage first broke the news on his Instagram profile writing: “THE FIRST EVER NORTH AMERICAN FESTIVAL IN CORONA HISTORY!!!”
