Innovative COVID-compliant event scheduled for September 11-12
Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) is partnering with KPM Promotions to present Roll’n Rave. A two-day Electronic Dance Music concert, on September 11-12.
This will be a very unique event. It designed like a drive-in theater, to provide live music to fans while observing COVID-19 social distancing requirements.
“We have worked closely with KPM Promotions and the Tooele County Health Department to create a new type of concert event,” said Dixon Hunt, UMC General Manager. “The health and well-being of our guests is our number-one priority, and we think we’ve come up with an innovative and intelligent way to provide live music while maintaining social-distancing protocols. We hope everyone will come out and enjoy the show!”
“We at KPM Promotions is proud of our newly-forged partnership with Utah Motorsports Campus,” said Daniel Krotz, Partner at KPM Promotions. ”The venue selection process featured rigorous vetting to ensure that the eventual home of Roll’n Rave shared our views on patron health and event safety. The UMC staff have gone above and beyond to integrate their own comprehensive COVID-19 protocols with those established by KPM.”
Artists scheduled include Subtronics, Boogie T B2B Dirt Monkey, Squnto, Sodown, Sumthin Sumthin and Kumarion on Friday. Then Riot Ten B2B Sullivan King, Wooli, Kai Wachi, G-Rex, Stuca and Sweet Teeth on Saturday.
Safety and Health Measures
The event will be staged similarly to a drive-in movie, with each vehicle occupying a designated 20×18-foot area. Only vehicle occupants will be allowed in each vehicle’s designated area. The expected attendance will be 2500 attendees or 500 vehicles. Every single person – guests, staff, artists, crew – will be temperature-checked prior to entering the facility. Any body with temperatures over 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed access.
In addition, masks are mandatory for everyone outside of a vehicle. The guests and staff are required to maintain social distancing in public areas. A professionally trained cleaning crew at Roll’n Rave will cleane and sanitize all high-traffic areas and surfaces, including restrooms hourly.
Gates will open at 2pm each day. You can have a maximum of five people in your vehicle. You must purchase one ticket per vehicle. Prices range from $200/vehicle/day to $625/vehicle/day for VIP access. You can purchase tickets at https://www.ticketfairy.com/event/roll-n-rave-drive-in-sep2020/.
“While Roll’n Rave’s overarching goal is to bring the joy of live music back to the community in these trying times,” Krotz said, “safety is our number-one concern for all patrons and staff. From the earliest planning stages of this event, every decision we’ve made has been viewed through this lens. We’ve worked tirelessly in concert with county health officials, venue medical staff and industry-leading event health and safety consultants to maximize the safety of our event and all who attend.”
“UMC takes COVID safety very, very seriously,” added Hunt. “We are an event venue, and our livelihood depends on our ability to create safe events for our guests. Utah Motorsports Campus was one of the first businesses in Tooele County to submit a detailed COVID-19 Action Plan to the county. We were one of the first venues in North America to host a NASCAR-sanctioned race with fans in attendance.”
“Our Kart Center and Fun Depot facilities are operating daily, and we’re hosting races almost every weekend. We have taken every single measure we can think of because we want to ensure safety. So far we have been successful. A lot of thought and planning has gone into the Roll’n Rave concert so we are confident that it will be an innovative, fun and safe event for our guests.”
