Fall 2020 Drive-In Concert Series
Itching for live, outdoor music? Our (socially distant!) drive-in concert series continues into the Fall, featuring a wide variety of bands and genres. Please read our note on health and safety, as well as the "Know Before You Go" section at the bottom of this page. Be prepared to follow all concert guidelines so that we can ensure a safe, welcoming, and enjoyable experience for everyone. See you on the lot!
Please Note: we love our pups here at People’s Light, but for liability and insurance reasons we cannot allow pets on the property during our outdoor events.

Health and Safety:
These drive-in concerts are designed for small groups within the same “social bubble” to safely enjoy outdoor entertainment together. Tickets are limited and social distancing is enforced. Each vehicle is limited to 5 people or less and assigned a parking spot and adjacent "Home Space" for setting up lawn chairs. We require concert attendees to remain in their designated area as much as possible and avoid mingling with other parties.
Face masks are required on our campus and may only be removed inside a vehicle or Home Space. People’s Light staff will be masked at all times and maintain a 6-foot distance from each other and our guests. We have protocols in place for disinfecting spaces, surfaces, and equipment used by musicians and staff.
We are working in partnership with East Whiteland Township and following current PA regulations for outdoor events. As we continue to monitor confirmed COVID-19 cases in the area, we are constantly evaluating the safety of our on-campus programming and will cancel events if necessary.
Concerts will take place in the back parking lot of our campus at 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern, PA. Most shows will be one 75 to 90-minute set. It is our goal to start and end on time. Musicians will perform on a raised stage at the back of the lot.
Tickets are $75 per car and limited to 5 passengers per car (not including children under 12). There are no physical tickets for these events. Attendees will receive a confirmation email receipt immediately following purchase, as well as a reminder email with more details a few days before a concert. In the event of rain, we will schedule a rain date.
When You Arrive:
Please plan to arrive between 3 and 3:30pm so we can get everyone parked in time for the 4pm concert.
A masked attendant will greet you at a 6-foot distance when you arrive. Please be prepared to wear a mask and provide your name so we can check your ticket status. Your car will be assigned a number, which will be adhered to your back windshield by the attendant. This is to assist in food delivery for those who pre-ordered from our on-site restaurant, and is also a helpful safety measure.
Parking attendants will guide you to a parking space. Cars will be parked based on the size of the vehicle. Lower cars in front, bigger vehicles in the back. Vehicles that don’t fit in a parking space (such as campers or oversized trucks) will not be allowed entry. Your view of the stage will be dependent on your location and the number of large vehicles in the lot, so we encourage you to bring your smallest vehicle!
To facilitate a safe and efficient exit after the event, you are not permitted to back your vehicle into your space, and you may not move your vehicle once you have parked.
Your Home Space:
Every vehicle will be assigned a "Home Space", an adjacent parking spot where you can set up lawn chairs. This space will be on the DRIVER’S SIDE of your vehicle. This is not a space intended for mingling with those outside your party. Per current PA regulations, you need to either be in your vehicle or immediately adjacent to it. No walking around or visiting neighbors. For sight line considerations, please keep your hatch/rear door down during the concert.
Food and Beverages:
You can pre-order food and drinks from The Farmhouse at People’s Light (and yes, this includes alcoholic beverages!) Specific instructions will be emailed to concert ticket holders, along with a 10% discount code. Outside alcohol is prohibited.
Face masks are required on our campus and may only be removed in your car or Home Space. We ask that all concert attendees wear a mask and maintain a 6-foot distance when interacting with anyone outside your party. People’s Light staff will be masked at all times, and Farmhouse staff will be masked and gloved.
Listen EVERYWHERE App:
People’s Light Drive-In Concerts are now linked to Listen Technologies’ Listen EVERYWHERE App, allowing us to livestream audio from our sound system directly to your smart phone. Click here for more info.
We love our pups here at People’s Light, but for liability and insurance reasons we cannot allow them on the property during our outdoor events.
There will be one standard portable toilet, one ADA-compliant portable toilet, and one wash station located in the parking lot. We require face masks (and suggest gloves!) when walking to and using the facilities. Click here for best practices when using public restrooms.
Please turn off your car when you park. We do not encourage people to sit in a car that is idling for more than ten minutes. (But don't forget to turn your lights back on at the end of the night!)
We do not allow smoking anywhere on our property at this time. This includes cigarettes, cigars, and cannabis.
If you have food or drinks delivered to your Home Space, we will give you a plastic bag to put your trash in. It would be a big help if you could take your trash home. If you don’t want to do that, please tie up your trash in the bag and leave it in your Home Space. We will pick up garbage when the parking lot is empty.
