Each parking spot will have clearly labeled boundaries, including a dedicated tailgating space to enjoy the concert outside of your car with a six-foot cushion between neighbors to provide safe distancing. Concessions will not be sold on-site, so fans are allowed to bring their own prepared food and non-glass beverages along with blankets and chairs to set up in their personal tailgate party space.

Fans will be treated to full-electric sets from a stage set up in the parking lot, featuring LED screens and full amplified sound.  An FM radio channel will also be available for listening inside the vehicle.
