COVID-19 has impacted everyone differently, and could possibly change how we enjoy live music forever. When the global pandemic hit, people sought shelter not knowing what the year 2020 had in store. Members of the EDM community felt at a loss while their ticket accounts sat still with shows that were postponed or canceled.

Fans began to regain hope when many artists insisted on sharing their music with the world when they took to Virtual Rave-A-Thons such as Couch Lands, Beyond Wonderland, and many others. For the first time, thousands of ravers streamed concerts from their couch as they imagine what it was like to be at live shows again.

Virtual raves were a sensation, but the EDM community wanted more. Colorado answered with its first Dubstep Drive-In, and on June 11 of 2020, hundreds of fans filled the Holiday Drive-In located in Fort Collins. EDM fans enjoyed the live music while social distancing by their cars as they listened to the beats of Midnight Tyrannosaurus, OG Nixin, Benda, and Mother Lotus.

Ever since the first drive-in, shows have been popping up all over the Denver area. Amplitude 500 has hosted a summer series that is coming to an end on Halloweekend.

The final show of the series will be on October 30th through the 31st at the Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, CO. EDM fans can enjoy live music again while viewing sets from NGHTMRE and Kai Waichi on the 30th show or Wooli and Midnight Tyrannosaurus on Halloween.

All those interested can head to any ticket website and reserve a ticket for a car. Look for the Amplitude 500 summer series, and you better hurry because they are already over fifty percent sold out.
