- Drink lots of water throughout the day.
Nothing is worse than being dehydrated at a show. It’s not healthy, and it’s definitely not fun. It can cause you to pass out, sweat more, and feel light-headed. Drinking water the day of your show is essential.
2. Stand where you’re comfortable.
Mosh pits and rowdiness are givens at a show. At the barricade and towards the middle of the crowd, people are rough. If you aren't comfortable with that, stand in the back. There’s nothing wrong with that. You don't want to be at the front and get hurt, or feel unsafe.
3. If you want barricade, get there early!
Want to see your favorite band/artist up close? Get to the show early! You will most likely get extremely close. Getting to the show later is perfectly fine, but it decreases your chance of getting to the barricade. Remember, no matter where you are, you’re still seeing the show!
4. Be nice!
Nobody likes it when you're rude. Not only are you making your experience better, you're making other people’s experience more enjoyable. Something I love about shows is the kind people. Make the environment better for everyone!
5. Have fun!
Shows are meant to be enjoyed. Don’t worry about what others think. Dance and sing your heart out. Crowd surf, mosh, and have a great time. You have the freedom to be yourself!
