The Electric-Fiesta team is amping up for an incredible week(ender) of COVID-Safe Drive-In activities, marking a historic moment in 2020’s history.
The programming for ‘Electric-Fiesta Week(ender)’ is officially set to take place in San Antonio, Texas from ThursdayOctober 29 to Sunday November 1, 2020 at the Freeman Coliseum Grounds Lot 1. The enormous success of San Antonio’s first multi day socially distanced drive-in event(EDM Drive-In, this past June) was felt around the country, and now the team at Electric-Fiesta has announcedThe Electric-Fiesta Drive-In Week(ender) just in time for Halloween fun.
Electric-Fiesta Co-Founder Miguel Lizarraga had this to say about the upcoming event “This Pandemic has really affected the whole World in more ways than any one of us could ever imagine. Our big goal is to give people something to talk about, something to look forward to and plan for. We are giving them a new type of immersive experience so it’s not just a watered-down version of a normal show, but rather something unique that might not happen again when life goes back to normal. When we were booking acts we wanted to make sure we could surprise and excite people, but also stir up some curiosity to explore other artists they hadn’t seen perform before.”
EMPHASIS ON SAFETY – Since the first EDM Drive-in, the team has made it a first priority to take safety very seriously, and the team will continue to follow the strict guidelines for best safety practices implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition, the team is working closely with the Freeman Coliseum and local officials to ensure ALL fans are as safe as possible. Complimentary Masks will be made available for all attendees of Electric-Fiesta.
This unique week(ender) of events will be a first for San Antonio, and the team cannot wait to bring joy, laughter and music into everyone’s lives with this history-making schedule of events in San Antonio.
The experience starts as soon as you pull up with a Drive-Thru themed “haunted tunnel” entrance for all the below events, and attendees can experience every show with 5 MASSIVE LED screens visible from all parts of the venue.
A working FM radio is required for maximum fun, and all events are all rain or shine.
Most importantly, the event is partnering with the San Antonio Food Bank. ALL attendees who bring at least 2 canned foods per person, will get a limited edition Electric-Fiesta bumper sticker as a thank you, plus more surprises. Electric-Fiesta is proud to match all donations.
We encourage all attendees to help the great people of San Antonio. With the pandemic, the poverty rate has worsened for the citizens of San Antonio, now more than ever let’s rally as a community to help all citizens. For more info visit: https://safoodbank.org/
