DEL MAR, Calif. (KGTV) — While concerts are on hiatus during the pandemic, the Del Mar Fairgrounds will host several "concerts in your car" this fall.

Acts including Dirty Heads, DJ Snoopadelic (aka Snoop Dogg), Slightly Stoopid, The Beach Boys, and more will take the stage at Del Mar between Sept. 25 and Nov. 1. Concerts will be held on a high, theater-in-the-round style, four-sided stage to give concertgoers a view of the show from any direction.

Ticket prices for vehicles range based on the concert and which color-coded section you select. Many of the concerts start at $99 per car for the furthest section from the stage. Large video screens have been added to each side of the stage.

Passengers must not exceed the number of seats and seat belts in a vehicle, according to the concert series' producer. Vehicles will then tune into the audio via their radio, sit back, and enjoy.

Tickets must be purchased ahead of time and are online only.

Movie screenings are also scheduled between Sept. 22 and 30 for a flat rate of $29 per car, featuring Trolls, Grease, Jurassic Park, The Big Lebowski, and Dirty Dancing.
