Where Every Family Matters

New Drive-Thru Lights Experience Hits Nashville Speedway Dec. 4-31

Award-winning production team reimagines the holiday light show with large-scale installations that “dance” to holiday music.

Eamotion announces JINGLE BEAT, a COVID-19- safe, outdoor holiday sound and light experience, December 4 – 31 at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.

Visitors will be immersed in the spirit of the season as they drive through large scale, multi-sensory installations that dance rhythmically to a fresh remix of holiday classics. The Nashville Predators, Music City’s beloved NHL hockey team, partnered with EAMOTION and Gallagher Staging to bring JINGLE BEAT to town in lieu of hosting its annual holiday event for fans indoors.

A family-friendly event, JINGLE BEAT features timed-entry, zero-contact ticketing, with one ticket covering the admission of all passengers in a single vehicle.

The two-mile, fixed outdoor course features an enchanting environment, including lasers, a 50-foot pyramid with cascading images created from more than 2000 video panels and 400-foot wide projection mapped surfaces.

“Our goal was to re-imagine a holiday light experience to create an unforgettable, immersive journey that captures the energy and spectacle of a major live production,” says EAMOTION CEO Erik Anderson. “There aren’t many silver linings to the pandemic, but creating a new family tradition with JINGLE BEAT may be one of them.”

With the loss of live entertainment during the pandemic, JINGLE BEAT presents a welcomed opportunity for many in the production industry to get back to work, including music, lighting, video, and special effects pros.

“Part of our mission is to give our industry colleagues a safe way to do their jobs and earn a living,” adds Anderson.

Ticket prices range from $45-$60 per vehicle and are available at
