The NOLA Drive-In Summer Concert Series

Read about the NOLA Drive-In Summer Concert Series coming to the Lakefront Arena this summer with performances by Tank and the Bangas, The Revivalists and Galactic.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our everyday lives are looking A LOT different these days but I’m happy to share that live music is back in New Orleans…with a twist. Beginning July 10th, the NOLA Drive-In Summer Concert Series will be coming to the Lakefront Arena. That’s right. You and your friends have the opportunity to safely enjoy live music from some of New Orleans’ favorite artists while still following social distancing guidelines!


C3 Presents, the producers behind Voodoo Music+Arts Experience, are bringing this three-part weekly outdoor drive-in concert experience to the city with LED screens, full-electrics sets and amplified sounds! Here are the scheduled weekly performances:

  • Friday, July 10: Tank and the Bangas
  • Friday, July 17: Galactic featuring Anjelika Jelly Joseph
  • Friday, July 24: The Revivalists


Tickets go on sale on Thursday, June 25th at 10 a.m. CT. Purchase tickets at!

General Admission Car Pass: $100 + fees. Provides a 20ft x 17ft parking space for a standard vehicle and entry for the number of passengers the vehicle legally seats.  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.

VIP Car Pass: $135 + fees. You have the chance to get a little closer to the action. You are guaranteed a spot in the first two rows of spaces closest to the stage!

Each parking spot will have a PayPal QR code on display for attendees to purchase event and artist merch touch free, and each purchase made using PayPal or Venmo will come with a free limited-edition poster. Merch will then be delivered to your space during the concert, or you can have it shipped to your home! C3 will donate 100% of net proceeds of all merch sales to Crew Nation, a global relief fund for live music crews.

Concessions will not be sold on-site so attendees 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 are required to wear masks, unless you are in your designated tailgate space. The safety of fans, artists and staff is the top priority!
