The world’s first drive-in raves are now taking place across Germany. According to Mixmag, the most recent one took place on Friday night in Schüttorf, a town near the Dutch border, and was organised by Holger Boesch, owner of local venue Club Index.
The organisers erected a festival stage fully equipped with a full sound system and lighting rig and hosted festival-goers in Club Index’s open-air parking lot. 250 cars with a maximum of 2 people per vehicle were allowed to enjoy the party.
Some people from the ‘crowd’ started to push their horns which gave us great feedback and from that point, we knew how to communicate with them and we could turn this event into something really personal.” – Nitefield
The evening’s lineup included Nitefield, MarvU and Devin Wild played and video clips of their sets have since gone viral. The audience could listen to the stage sound system as well as tune in to an internet broadcast of the music.
Fellow German promoters World Club Dome have also been hosting drive-in raves in Düsseldorf, with the next one taking place later this month while Denmark has already hosted a few drive-in concerts.
