Texas Motor Speedway to host deadmau5 for drive-in show

The legendary electronic music producer is heading to Fort Worth for a a show organized by the long-running Lights All Night festival.

Lights All Night, Texas’ longest-running EDM festival, has been canceled for this year, which would have been its 11th. But the organizers of the two-day, year-end event announced on Tuesday a drive-in concert with legendary electronic music producer deadmau5 that’s set to take place Jan. 9 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.

Billed as an “entirely contactless outdoor drive-in experience,” there are no concession stands. Fans are asked to stay in their cars unless venturing out to use a restroom. Outside food is permitted, and a $20 “cooler fee” allows attendees to bring their own alcohol. Parking spaces are on the infield of the racetrack.

VIP passes buy groups of up to five better spots. Individual pricing is available too, although each vehicle will need a “driver pass,” the price of which varies but is around $100, along with tickets for each passenger, which go for $49.95.

One of the biggest names in EDM, deadmau5 recently collaborated with Kiesza and the Neptunes and has played some virtual shows during the pandemic. But this is a live performance with a PA system and massive video screens on hand, including the racetrack’s massive 12-story HD screen.

The concert is rain or shine and tickets are on sale now at lightsallnight.com.
