Edgar Cruz – Pedro Capó
Pedro Capó headlines the Drive-In Summer Fest in San Juan, Puerto Rico, July 4.
While COVID-19 continues wreaking havoc on the live industry around the world, Puerto Rico took a step forward July 4 when it hosted the Drive-In Summer Fest music festival in San Juan, with Pedro Capó, La Secta and Circo.
The event was promoted by Move Concerts (Puerto Rico) and No Limit Entertainment and was held in the parking lot of Hiram Bithorn Stadium with social distancing and safety measures in place including temperature checks and hand sanitizer made available at the entrance.
The show ended at 9 p.m. local time to respect the local curfew.
“Thanks Puerto Rico for always supporting your own. I feel I can speak for all the colleagues, technicians and musicians when I say that you don’t know how much we missed being on stage,” Capo wrote on Instagram after the event. “Thanks to Move Concerts PR and No Limit Entertainment for having the initiative on such difficult times, last night was a real special night.”
The event also featured a massive drone show to announce the arrival of the 5G network to the island, featuring 135 drones by Garba Music & Verge Aéreo.
Prior to COVID-19 Puerto Rico was a strong touring market, particularly for Latin artists, and it is the place where Reggaeton, now a global phenomenon first developed.
Daddy Yankee hosted 10 shows at Coliseo de Puerto Rico in December, setting a new local attendance record.
Move Concerts is also putting on its first Pay Per View concert in Puerto Rico July 11 with Kany Garcia.
