For months, Brisbanites couldn't leave the city. Other than via streaming, we couldn't enjoy live tunes either. Now that restrictions on both are easing, Airwaves: The Drive-In Music Festival is here to make the most of it — by hosting a music fest on the Sunshine Coast that's all about watching ace talent from the comfort of your car.

Hitting up the Nambour Showgrounds between Friday, July 10–Sunday, July 12, the new festival will unleash three nights of live music, with a different lineup on offer each evening. The Dreggs, Sahara Beck and Toxic Fox will kick things off on Friday, with The Chats, Bugs and Being Jane Lane taking over on Saturday. Then, come Sunday, Pierce Brothers, Oka and Salt & Steel will hit the stage to wrap it all up.

It's your excuse to head out of town and head to a gig — and to have a unique experience while you're at it. Pre COVID-19, no one would've imagined that drive-in concerts and music festivals would be a thing. Now, they're part of our new reality.

If that's not motivation enough, Airwaves will also sport an outer space theme; think astronaut ice-cream to snack on, flying saucer-style decorations scattered around the place, decking out the venue like a space station and encouraging attendees to dress appropriately.

Tickets for each night are being sold separately — ranging from $206.80–329.20 per car per night depending on how close to the stage you'd like to park — with 275 car spaces available every evening.

And if you're wondering about COVID-19 safe measures, the fest will feature contactless ticketing, food delivery to your car, hand sanitiser for everyone and the enforcement of 1.5-metre social-distancing requirements.

Airwaves: The Drive-In Music Festival takes place on Friday, July 10 from 6–10pm, Saturday, July 11 from 6–10pm and Sunday, July 12 from 4–8pm, with tickets on sale now.
