Event Details:

We’re driving into summer with the highest level of safety in mind. Vehicles will be parked with a minimum of 8’ in between, allowing you to enjoy the concert from inside or outside your vehicle. Bring your bicycle, motorcycle, or any average size vehicle, but leave your RV, bus, large van, or oversized vehicle at home. We love a good jacked up truck, but the guests parked behind you may not. Groups of up to 7 people per car are allowed. Cyclists may have 6 bikes per pod, and motorcycles may park 2 per pod.

Getting Here:
Revive the Live Drive-In Concert Series takes place in Waterworks Park near the Izaak Walton League. You will enter through the Waterworks Park main entrance off of Fleur Drive and will then travel Gray’s Lake Road until you reach the shelter house.   

Upon arrival, you will pull up to the registration area and present your confirmation email(s) to verify registration. This may be done through an open or closed car window. Participants will then be directed to a parking space.

After the show, our security team will dismiss cars row by row.   

Safety Information:
Utilizing the World Health Organization’s Covid-19 Risk Assessment
Tool, the event team has established the risk factor for Revive the Live is LOW. We didn’t want to stop there so you’ll see lots of safeguards in place across the event field. This is very much a team effort, so we need your help as well! You’ll be asked to review and agree to the participant guidelines outlined below when you purchase your ticket(s).

Participant Guidelines:
We want everyone to have a great time, but we also don’t want to be put in timeout again, so we’re asking you to help us out by following a few safety guidelines. If you’re not a rule follower, you should know you’ll be escorted out of the event without a refund, so make good choices!

  • You’re welcome to sit in the back of or outside your vehicle on the driver’s side. Lawn chairs, blankets, and dancing next to your vehicle are encouraged.
  •  If you’re not comfortable leaving your car, we totally get it. Our security team will place you in a designated area allowing you to keep your vehicle running while listening through your radio.
  • Being put in timeout was no fun, and we REEEEALLY don’t want to go there again. Help us out by wearing a face covering any time you leave the designated space next to your vehicle.
  •  We hear all the cool events are doing this physical distancing thing, and we want to be cool too! We need you to maintain a 6’ distance from other groups at all times. If we see you mingling in another group’s space, we’ll have to ask you to leave without a refund.
  • Restrooms: for the safety of all, bathrooms in the shelter house are available on an emergency basis. We recommend using the restroom prior to arrival and/or after departure. If you must go, throw on that face covering and make sure there are no more than 2 people in the restroom at a time.
  • This is a family-friendly event, and we can’t wait to see all the kiddos dancing and singing along! Help us by making sure they are doing it from your designated space.
  • You MAY bring in your own food and beverages. What?? Yes, you heard that right! If you need a night off from cooking, we’ll also have a vendor onsite offering food and non-alcoholic beverages. Don’t forget to wear your face covering when ordering. It’s that whole timeout thing.
  • When the show is over, pack up quickly, and be ready for our security team to dismiss you by row.
  • Trash removal is simple. If you bring it in, you take it back out. Easy peasy.
  • Tips are encouraged! If you enjoy the event, show your support to the band and production crew by sending tips through Venmo to @revivethelive. If you’re wondering about a tip amount, we suggest the equivalent of a festival beer (or two).


The following items are strictly prohibited while on the event field:

  • Smoking and vaping
  • Pets
  • Fire Arms
  • Fireworks or any type of explosives
