Marc Rebillet, also known as Loop Daddy, has announced he will set out on the US’ first-ever drive-in concert tour.
The phenomenon on drive-in raves took off in Germany recently, and now Ribellet will be taking the new pandemic-proof format Stateside. The shows will be hosted at drive-in cinemas and aim to replicate a similar experience, with short films broadcast instead of traditional opening acts.

Speaking about the tour, Marc Rebillet said: “We need a musical distraction now more than ever. I’m deeply pumped to be able to invite people to see me play live in a new, creative and most importantly, safe way.”
David Zedeck, Partner & Global Head of Music at United Talent Agency who are co-running the tour with HOTBOX, said: “Marc is a groundbreaking artist and his rare combination of innovative humor and wit will deliver an unparalleled live experience when we need it most.”
