With social distancing here, many people are missing some of the shared joys of life, like dining in a restaurant, going to a bar or attending a concert. Denmark has come up with a genius way for the public to take part in the latter however, by introducing drive through gigs where attendees can listen through their FM radios.

The brainchild of three companies, Front of House, Steady and Nordic Rentals, P Scenen is like an ongoing festival that offers new things every day, from movie viewings and comedy to concerts. Attendees can park up in front of the big stage at Aarhus and tune in to an audio feed broadcast out through a radio frequency.

“The day our Prime Minister closed down the country we decided to do something about It. We brainstormed for the whole night and decided that just because there is COVID19 it doesn’t mean that culture is dead. On the contrary, it wants to live. And we want it to live! Our hope and goal is to spread good energy because we believe that it creates waves of more good energy and we need that in our hearts and minds at these times,” organiser Mark Chemnitz told Lonely Planet.

The companies built a cultural platform that can host music, art, dance, and lectures, and view it as a stage open and accessible to everybody. Recently P Scenen had singer-songwriter Mads Langer perform to a delighted audience.
