A raft of major acts have been confirmed to perform as part of a drive-in concert series coming to Bristol this summer.

Utilita Live From The Drive-In was announced by promoter Live Nation and Utilita Energy this morning, following a spike in the popularity of drive-in cinemas around the world as event organisers prepare for life after lockdown.

The drive-in music festival will visit 12 venues across the UK, with Bristol’s series taking place at Filton Airfield – where Massive Attack performed last year – between July and September.

Each drive-in event will comply with Government rules on social distancing, with audience members given a designated area around their cars within which they can stand and sit.

The programme will also feature theatre performances, interactive science shows, DJs and family activities.

Each drive-in will have a capacity for around 300 cars per show, with a state of the art sound system, lighting rig and high definition LED screens to create an arena feel.

Live Nation promoter Peter Taylor said: “We are excited to bring Utilita Live From The Drive-In to fans across the UK.

“This outdoor concert series was created as a way to reimagine the live music experience during a time of social distancing by allowing fans to enjoy concerts in the safest way possible.

“Each event will comply with all official Government guidelines in order to protect fans, artists, crews and staff.

“We look forward to announcing some of the biggest names across UK music and bringing these fantastic artists to a city near you.”
