Westland Mall Drive-In Series to Return in MayMarch 22, 2021 5:19 pm Taijuan Moorman
Prime Social Group has announced its pandemic-inspired Westland Mall Drive-In venue will reopen for another concert series this spring and summer.
The drive-in venue, which opened for the first time last fall in response to the coronavirus pandemic and closure of traditional music venues, almost didn’t reopen.
Area residents complained about the noise from the venue, but a vote last week from the Franklin County Board of Zoning Appeals granted Prime Social Group a variance, allowing the venue to continue hosting shows.
The Westland Mall Drive-In Series includes approximately 20 dates, with a lineup that includes local and national acts ranging from country to EDM.
Just as it did last fall, the venue will have an Admission per Vehicle format: Each ticket admits one standard passenger vehicle with up to four passengers, with additional passenger tickets offered for a maximum vehicle capacity of up to six people.
“We received an amazing response from concert-goers that missed having live music in their lives and we are thrilled to be able to once again fill that void with the spring edition of the Westland Mall Drive-In,” said Zach Ruben, co-founder of Prime Social Group, in a press release.
According to the press release, Prime Social Group will work closely with local officials in order to comply with all COVID-19 guidelines, and can update the admission model as those regulations and guidelines start to relax.
The full concert line-up is to be announced and will be available at WestlandDrivein.com.
