Club Index, which is in the town of Schüttorf, near Germany's border with the Netherlands, and was open to 250 cars, each of which were allowed a maximum of two people in.

The headliner was Dutch DJ Devin Wild, who then uploaded footage of the unique party to social media.

He could be seen on the decks wearing a face mask, getting the audience involved with a bit of car horn-related crowd participation.

More of the 'autodiscos' are planned for the future, with even a family friendly event being set up.

Italy Extends Coronavirus Quarantine Restrictions To Entire Country

Promoters in Denmark have also been trialling drive in live music events, hoping to bring a potential alternative to normal gigs and concerts.

Musician Mads Langer performed a sold-out performance, with the event announced six days beforehand and the gig selling out in minutes.

All 500 tickets were sold for the show, which took place near Aarhus, with the site being turned into a drive-in cinema the day after for a screening of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.

The gig itself transmitted audio to cars via FM radio, as reported by Forbes, with gig-goers given the chance to interact with Langer using Zoom.

One local Signe Nygaard, who had requested fan-favorite 'Fact-Fiction', was invited to join on stage.

Speaking from the stage, Langer told the crowd: "I've played many concerts in my life, but this is really a first."

The majority of music festivals and events have already been cancelled this year, with the risk of the continuation of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic deemed too high, but these recent adaptations could be a look into the short term future of the events industry once lockdown measures begin to gradually lift.

Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Adviser to the UK Government, said that it was 'wholly unrealistic' to expect life to return to normal soon.
