Our Mission

Reviving Chicago's live experience industry.

We have come together to create a socially responsible event series that puts gigs in the hands of industry professionals and creates space for Chicagoans to get back to enjoying live entertainment safely.

Chicago's music, arts, and culture are unlike any other. The Lakeshore Drive-In will combine local talent with national leaders to showcase truly unique experiences.

A socially responsible

event series under the stars

  • All attendees must wear a mask/facial covering when outside of any vehicle.
    Masks will be available for purchase at each event.​

  • Attendees can dance outside of their car in their designated spot only, while wearing their mask.

  • Tickets will be pre-purchased online. No tickets will be sold on site to prevent interaction and transmission.

  • We will allow a maximum of 6 attendees per vehicle. 

  • Attendees will be asked to remain in their vehicles when not using the restroom facilities. Attendees will be permitted to sit on their vehicles or within their 12x8 parking spot area. This area will be determined by the distance between their side mirrors. The empty spaces in-between vehicles are intended for a socially safe environment and will be enforced by staff and security.

  • Attendees who fail to follow safe distancing at the request of staff will be safely removed from the event. No refunds given.

  • Ticket Purchaser names will be collected at ticket purchase to assist with contact tracing, as needed.

  • A list of hygiene and sanitation recommendations will be sent to all attendees prior to each event and listed on the event’s website at lsdrivein.com.

  • Please refrain from leaving the event with your vehicle before the event is over. If you must leave the event with your vehicle, please inform the roaming safety attendants to coordinate the transportation of leaving the event. Approved.

  • Accessory items or physical objects over 12” are not permitted inside of the event. Items that can be categorized as weapons or harmful will be confiscated before entering the event. If they are seen at the event, they will be confiscated on site and not be returned.

  • Health and safety signage will be posted throughout the event, reminding attendees about the importance of hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene, and etiquette.

  • Visibly marked LSDI Safety staff will be dispersed among parking lanes to answer questions regarding social distancing and recommend safe practices for attendees.


Parking Spaces

  • Every-other parking space (8-foot distance) will be left empty to promote and maintain social distancing. Each space will be a dedicated 12X8 parking spot.

  • Parking spots are first come first serve for both VIP and general admission. Due to the safety of our fans if you arrive after the performance has already started, your parking position may not be a priority spot.



  • Restroom facilities will be regularly cleaned and sanitized by a dedicated onsite cleaning crew.

  • Restroom bays will be placed at the end of each lane of the parking lot to prevent attendee cross-over contact.

  • Each restroom bay will consist of standard restroom facilities and one ADA-accessible facility, dedicated sanitation team members, and hand sanitizing stations with appropriate markings for socially distant waiting lines.​


Food and Beverages

  • Concessions will not be accessible by attendees. Attendees will use their smartphones to order concessions and artist merchandise. We will only accept electronic payments via QR coded receipts provided by staff. Once LSDI staff process payments, concessions and merchandise will be delivered directly to attendees' vehicles.


Reach out to us via email at info@lsdrivein.com for any questions about further accessibility. Your safety and comfort is our priority.
