About The Parking Lot Social: Glasgow

Glasgow-based events company XL Event Lab is hosting the events to give the public a much needed entertainment fix after months of lockdown.

Each night, 250 carloads will enjoy films, car-a-oke, bingo, silent disco, live bands, quizzes, comedy and food all done in a safe, socially distant way. For families with younger children, a ‘Social Kids’ event will offer content adapted to a younger, family-oriented audience and an earlier start time.

Attendees will take part in the interactive event from their own cars, parked in front of a vast custom-made performance set. This spectacular installation is a blend of art and technology with two 40ft screens, a 52ft fire hydrant and a brace of inflatable gorillas standing watch over a central stage.

Audio will be transmitted directly from the stage to custom-made wireless headphones and through a dedicated FM radio channel for listening via the car stereo. Keeping guests and staff safe, the whole event is designed with social distancing at its heart from entering the site, getting food delivered and taking a trip to the loo.

The company, which entered the Guinness Book of Records last year for creating the world’s biggest bouncy castle, will host The Parking Lot Social in six Scottish cities this summer.

The events will now run for an extended two weeks, with Edinburgh taking place from 12 to 23 August (12-16 & 19-23 August), before moving to Glasgow from 26 August to 6 September (26-30 August & 2-6 September).

XL Event Lab has been staging large scale outdoor events around the world for the last 13 years and has welcomed over a million guests to their parties during that time. This summer, as well as touring Scotland, The Parking Lot Social will also be taking place in 11 American cities and five in Australia.

Tickets to The Parking Lot Social will be released in stages with Edinburgh available now at seetickets.com
