Itching for some live, outdoor music? Grab a ticket to our first socially-distant drive-in concert experience, featuring The Big Takeover

Fronted by charismatic Jamaican-born singer and songwriter Nee Nee Rushie, this seven-piece band from the Hudson Valley plays original music that is rooted in and reverent towards the genres and rhythms of Jamaican pop: reggae, rocksteady, ska. They are devotees of Desmond Dekker and the way the old school did it. At the same time, The Big Takeover crosses lines and blends traditions like global pop fusionists. Their deceptively complex arrangements and big hooks connect with the spirit of Motown and the uptown sophistication of the 21st century retro soul and R&B revival scene.

Please read through the guidelines listed below so you have a clear idea of what to expect. Tickets are extremely limited for this concert so that we can ensure proper health and safety procedures. We hope to learn from this event so that we can offer more car concerts with greater ticket availability throughout the summer. 

Tickets are $65 per car, and are non-refundable. The rain date is Sunday, June 28 at 6:30pm. If you cannot attend on the rain date, you are welcome to sell or give your ticket to someone else.


KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Show Info:

The concert will take place in the back parking lot of our campus at 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern, PA. The show will be one 75 to 90-minute set. It is our goal to start and end the show on time. There will not be an “opener” before The Big Takeover’s set. The band will perform on a raised stage at the back of the lot.

Arrival Time and What to Expect:

Please plan to arrive between 5:30 and 6pm so we can get everyone parked in time for the 6:30pm 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. You will not be allowed to move your vehicle once you’ve parked. 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!

Your Home Space:

Every vehicle will be assigned an adjacent parking space that you will be allowed to put lawn chairs in. This space will be on the DRIVER’S SIDE of your vehicle, assuming you parked facing the stage. 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.

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:

People’s Light staff will be masked at all times, and Farmhouse staff will be masked and gloved. We ask that all concert attendees wear masks when outside of their car or Home Space, and when interacting with staff.

Bathrooms:

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.

Car Idling:

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.

Smoking:

We do not allow smoking anywhere on our property at this time. This includes cigarettes, cigars, and marijuana.

Pets:

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.

Trash:

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.

Refunds: 

There are no refunds for this event. The rain date is Sunday, June 28 at 6:30pm. If you cannot attend on the rain date, you are welcome to sell or give your ticket to someone else. If we are unable to move forward with the scheduled rain date, we will select another. If we cancel the event entirely, tickets will be refunded.
