Just a day after news of the new drive-in concert venue got revealed.

From Friday July 10, Melbourne will welcome a huge list of music talent to perform at its new drive-in concert venue, fittingly titled ‘The Drive-In’. Some of the names set to appear include Client Liaison, Winston Surfshirt, Alex Lahey, Lime Cordiale, Baker Boy, Ball Park Music as well as Northeast Party House.

That’s just the start, with other acts including Boo Seeka, Running Touch, Owl Eyes, Alice Skye, Mwanje, Close Counters and more. The gigs will take place across three consecutive nights in three separate blocks, with nine shows taking place from July 10 to July 26. That’s just the start – the lineup for ensuing weeks will be announced in due course.

The venue will be set in Flemington Racecourse and has been put together thanks to Untitled Group, the guys behind the likes of Beyond The Valley, Ability Fest, Grapevine Gathering, Pitch Music & Arts and Wildlands.

The Drive-In will look to reignite a hurting arts industry that was ground to a halt when the coronavirus crisis hit – more than 200 people from within the sector will be back in work when the venue kicks into gear.

Watch concerts from the stage or via large viewing screens which will be spread throughout the venue – knowing the events expertise of Untitled, this is sure to be a state-of-the-art venue and experience.

The schedule is as follows:

Friday July 10: Client Liaison, Owl Eyes

Saturday July 11: Alex Lahey, Alice Skye

Sunday July 12: Winston Surfshirt, Mwanje

Thursday July 16: Boo Seeka, Creature Fear

Friday July 17: Running Touch, Set Mo
