Buckle Up, A Supersized Drive-In Party With Live Music, Comedy & Trivia Is Heading Down Under

If iso’s got you feeling nostalgic for big, huge, massive parties, here’s a friendly PSA: The Parking Lot Social is a drive-in party coming to Aus that has everything you need for the ultimate (and socially distanced) celebration.

We’ve all been missing our pre-iso activities, and the Parking Lot Social is bringing back pretty much everything you could ever find yourself wanting to do on a night with your mates.

What can you expect from The Parking Lot Social drive-in party?

There’ll be live music, stand-up comedy, trivia, bingo, movie screenings, karaoke, a silent disco, food trucks, and more.

You’ll be partying from your car, but there’s still a hell of a lot of partying to be done. You can even play interactive games with your mates and all the other cars for a chance to win prizes.

It’s by the same team behind Big Bounce Australia, the giant bouncy castle that popped up a lifetime ago (AKA summer). Basically that means you know it’s going to be a party to remember.

But there’s a catch: The Parking Lot Social won’t be around for long. It’s touring Australia, kicking off in Sydney in July. Check out the full schedule below and add the dates to your calendar ASAP.

  • Sydney, July 9–19
  • Melbourne, July 23–August 2
  • Brisbane, August 6–16
  • Canberra, August 20–30
  • Adelaide, September 3–13

Head to the Parking Lot Social website to get tickets for your city, or to sign up to be notified if and when dates for your city are announced. Your ticket will get everyone in the car into the party, so round up your four closest mates to party on.

Looking for more fun things to do? Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge for cheap, settle in at a cosy bar with a fireplace or take off for a half-price Whitsundays holiday.
