Deadmau5 announces grip of Southern California drive-in shows for New Year’s
We’re wrapping up on the strangest year of all time—perhaps best encapsulated by a barren winter events schedule and crowds reduced to carfuls of socially distanced ravers. Though, with a hopeful outlook on 2021, deadmau5 is planting his flag in Southern California to cap off 2020 and head into the new year with a grip of shows. The mau5trap helmer has announced five New Year’s drive-in events, doing back-to-back nights for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, followed by a Testpilot outing on January 2 in San Bernardino, with a few days off in between another pair deadmau5 dates in Chula Vista on January 7 and 8.
In conjunction with Insomniac, the first run of events will take place at San Bernardino’s NOS Events Center, followed by a two-night stint at the North Island Credit Union Amphitheater in Chula Vista.
Of course this year, deadmau5 hasn’t really let the pandemic stifle his output. He effortlessly made the pivot to streaming content and performances, he’s successfully working the drive-in show model, and he’s managed to release a steady stream of music this year too. Now, he’s prepping to ring in the new year in Southern California, hopefully setting the tone for a much better 2021.
