The Danish city of Aarhus recently held a drive-in concert on the outskirts of town, which could signal the future of live music. While areas all across the globe remain in some form of lockdown — and others with strict social distancing guidelines due to the coronavirus — it remains to be seen how live events will be carried out in the coming months.

Aarhus held its live concert with Danish singer-songwriter Mads Langer on a newly-constructed stage, as the space will be home to numerous drive-in events in the weeks ahead. As soon as the concert was announced, the 500 allotted tickets sold out in minutes, with residents seemingly aching for some form of entertainment outside of their own homes.

Langer's music was transmitted into vehicles via FM radio. Those in attendance were also able to interact with the musician through Zoom. “I've played many concerts in my life, but this is really a first,” he said.

According to police, the crowd adhered to the area's social distancing restrictions for the most part. “There are only positive messages from our people on the spot," Christian Friis of the Østjyllands Police told local newspaper Jyllands-Posten. "It has been controlled. People have behaved the way they should, and all the cars were out of place within half an hour.”

Some experts have predicted that live concerts as we know them could possibly be put on hold until the fall of 2021. More recently, a poll revealed that a large portion of Americans will forego concerts until there is a vaccine for the coronavirus.

So, could Denmark be on to something with its drive-in concerts? Only time will tell. For now, visit Forbes for more on the recent event.
