HUTTO, Texas — A drive-in music festival sponsored by Raising Cane's is in the works for the cities of Hutto, Dallas and Lubbock, Texas.

The two-day festival dubbed "Hometown Heroes" will be held simultaneously in the three cities on Sept. 25 and Sept. 26, with some artists performing live on stage in one town while the others are streamed in from the other locations.

Viewers in Hutto can expect to see Snoop Dogg, Nelly, Stoney Larue, Randy Rogers Band, Josh Abbott and Mike Ryan live on stage.

Tickets are being sold in multiple categories by vehicle. They are being sold in packs of four to six, with the lowest package averaging to $52 per person and the highest being $147.

Diamond, Platinum and Gold will allow for a minimum of four and a max of six people to have their own socially distanced "yard" around their vehicle. These spaces are 8 feet by 8 feet and are to be distanced six feet from the next group. In the Gold area, which event organizers described as "sub-par," music volume will not be as intense.

Guests will be able to bring an FM tuner to their area to listen on their headphones. Large LED screens will also be present in select areas.

In the Silver area, the yards will be 24 feet by 18 feet. However, there will be little visibility to the stage and low volume. Guests will be encouraged to use their FM tuners from their cars.
