Now that drive-in events have been given the government green light, XL Event Labs have confirmed they will run the Edinburgh leg of their events calendar between 12 and 23 August 2020.

The audience remain in their cars and everyone attending can watch films and take part in car-a-oke, bingo, quizzes and some comedy. The younger children are also catered for with an earlier start timee and different films.

There will be two 40ft screens and audio is piped into your car throughs headphones or a dedicated FM channel.

The full Edinburgh line up will be publicised in the next couple of weeks but it will take place at Dalkeith Country Park.

Josh Kinnersley, Chief Operating Officer at XL Event Lab, said: “Our events are designed around people staying in their parked cars at all times, so the new advice from the Scottish Government doesn’t impact our plans. We’ve focused on entertainment formats that translate naturally to a drive-in platform, really using the limitations of being in a stationary vehicle to our advantage.

“We have the best technology and a custom-made set to bring the event to life and give the public something new and unique, and we’ll be working closely with local authorities at each event to ensure that all safety measures are in place. 

“While other promoters are exiting the drive-in events space, we’ve seen a real appetite from the public and are adding more dates to meet demand. Tickets are on sale now and we look forward to kicking off the tour next month.”
