Snoop Dogg will perform live in North Austin at the socially distanced, drive-in Hometown Heroes festival on Sept. 25.

After six months mostly bereft of live music and festivals, Austin is getting a show.

Snoop Dogg and Nelly are among the performers slated to perform live at the socially distanced drive-in Hometown Heroes festival the weekend of Sept. 25 at an as-yet-unannounced location in the North Austin area.


The festival will simultaneously occur in the North Dallas and Lubbock areas, with performances taking place at each location.

"The THREE LIVE shows will take place on the SAME NIGHT in the DIFFERENT cities at times that align with the production of ONE SEAMLESS SHOW," explains the Hometown Heroes website. "Each artist will play their time slot LIVE to their audience, which will be recorded and STREAMED to the other markets!"

The Austin show will include streamed performances by Pat Green and Cody Johnson.

All attendees will be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver, which requires they have not been exposed to any person with a suspected or confirmed case of the disease or recently traveled to a highly impact area.

Attendees will also be required to wear a mask any time they leave their cars. Food, drink and merchandise vendors will allow for contactless ordering and delivering of goods to guests' vehicles for safety.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday.
