For those having in-person rave withdrawals, drive-in raves are the next best thing. What started in Germany is now making its way to the States. On June 26 and 27, EDM Drive-in will debut their first “Drive-in” event in San Antonio, Texas. Taking place on the Freeman Coliseum Grounds, the event will feature full-on stage production, and an exciting lineup that will be released soon.
In conjunction with the local charity Aueda, the Electric-Fiesta team will raise money for entertainers affected by the coronavirus crisis and hopes to provide many jobs for the local community through this event. They will also use donations to support the Rey Feo Education Scholarship for high school seniors and the Whet Foundation Covid-19 Relief Fund will benefit the local community through special grants.
The Electric-Fiesta team is comprised of Fred Reyes (President) and CEO and Founder of SiteB Data and former member of the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Sid Zuber (Operations/Production/Logistics Specialist) who worked with Goldenvoice/Coachella for over 13 years and designed numerous touring gigs throughout the decades, Miguel “Migs” Lizarraga or @veranmiky (Brand Director & Head of Media/Marketing), a San Diego native and SDSU grad, Migs is the Media Director for Groove Cruise and tour media for Dash Berlin.
EDM Maniac is the official media partner for EDM Drive-In. Many are familiar with EDM Maniac as a go-to publication that provides the latest news, exclusive interviews, and exciting content to electronic music fans across the globe. But the origins of EDM Maniac stemmed from a pure love of music almost a decade ago as a warehouse party series hosted throughout the Los Angeles area. At the time, the parties were created to bring fans together to enjoy music in a safe space. Since then, EDM Maniac evolved into the publication and marketing agency it is today that aims to inspire and connect the dance music community.
EDM Drive-in is putting many measures in place to ensure the safest way to party. Cars will be parked spaced out and facing the stage so that guests can enjoy the show from the comfort of their seat or in the car’s circumference. With a max capacity of 300-350 vehicles, the gathering will be intimate and special for those who get a spot. Festival planners have collaborated with Bexar County Officials, Local Health Departments, Bexar County Sheriff , the Fire Marshall, and the venue team on logistics that meet regulations.
The mission of the debut event is to bring joy through the experience of live music. By breaking the humdrum of staying at home for the past couple months, EDM Drive-in hopes to restore and invigorate the mental health of dance music fans through this mini-escape.
If you live nearby San Antonio, mark your calendars and go get your rave fix! If you can’t make it, you will still be able to watch the live stream. More details on ticket prices, lineup, live stream will be coming soon. For tickets visit edmdrivein.com.
