As summer approaches, so does concert season. Whether you're going to a festival like Lollapalooza or a normal tour concert, the experience is most likely going to be extremely memorable. But, as with most things in life, there is plenty we can do to make the absolute most of them! Since I am prepping for a concert, myself, in the coming weeks I thought it'd be a good idea to share some tips I do as well as what some of my friends do in order to fully prepare themselves for and to thoroughly enjoy a concert!

Tips for logistics (1-8):

Tips for the fun: (9-15):

1. Buy the tickets.

Duh?

2. Arrange travel.

Nothing is worse than realizing the day before (or of!) the concert that you don't know how you're getting there. Anticipate traffic or delays. Make sure you can pay for any parking fees. Figure out any carpools.

3. Be fed and hydrated.

Especially it's an all-day festival or you can't bring your own, make sure you plan ahead to eat before and drink throughout the day. Or make sure you have money to get concessions during the concert. Concerts can be physically draining, so you got to make sure your body is probably fueled to get the most out of it. It's a great idea to have snacks in the car for the way home from a concert.

4. Make sure your phone is charged.

This is important for safety and staying in touch with whoever you're going to the concert with as well as with any family members checking in on you. Also if you're someone who loves to take lots of photos or videos at a concert it's the worst if your phone dies before your favorite song or it notifies you that you have no storage left! It's nice to leave a charger in your car, so you can charge it on your way home as well.

5. Be comfortable.

  1. Not only in the location of the concert and who you're with but also in your attire. Take the weather into account (especially if it's outside). If you're going to be standing all day or night, wear comfortable shoes. And just wear clothes that you want to be in -- You're the one wearing it for three+ hours, so it might as well be something you'll be comfortable in.

6. Plan for bathroom breaks.

This goes for logistics and fun, but you don't want to get stuck in the position where you may have to leave a performance -- perhaps your favorite song -- and you have to leave to go the bathroom. How unfortunate?! Don't let it happen to you.

7. Expect to experience All The Feels.

If you know the artist(s) may sing a song that just hits you in the feels every time, maybe it's a good idea to wear waterproof mascara or bring tissues. Or just let anyone you're at the concert with to pay no mind if you get overwhelmed with the emotions (whether that means you start crying or are just hyper-excited because of the energy of the concert).

8. Be thoughtful. 

You don't want to have to carry around a big bag all day or night. Also just think about bag checks...don't bring stuff you know security is going to take. Make sure you have money and an ID and your phone...there isn't much else you really need.

9. Get hyped!

However you do this, go for it! One of the best ways is to jam (weeks before and) on the journey to the concert.

10. Become familiar with the songs and the lyrics!

Concerts are for losing your voice, right?!

11. Relax.

Just know that you need to be flexible because everything may not go as planned, but it's still going to be great and you just need to sit back and enjoy it!

12. Go with someone that will enjoy the concert (& the artist(s)) just as much as you and that you'll have fun with!

Don't bring a Debby-downer and definitely don't become one! You're there for a good time. Don't care about others may think about you...go crazy, dance, scream the lyrics, lose your freaking mind.

13. But also...don't be afraid to go by yourself.

Live in the moment and be yourself! Don't deny yourself a memorable experience just because everyone else is busy or doesn't like the artist(s).

14. Merch.

Rep it if you got it. Bring money if you want it. But also remember that you could probably get the same t-shirts for cheaper online.

15. Be as cringey as you want!

Pay no mind to the side glances. Just be yourself. Take as many photos as you want. Dress up or down as much as you want. Record the whole concert if you want to. You spent the money, so make it worth it! Embrace the crazy fan and extrovert inside of you!

    Life Is So Much More Than Ourselves

    The lives we live are really so much bigger than just ourselves.

    I hope people hear this loud and clear when I say that this generation of people and quite frankly our society as a whole has become one of the most selfish to date. I really hope people reading this don't take it as me calling people out, "throwing shade" or bashing humanity, I'm just trying to put out a call to action but in a more blunt way.

    This generation subconsciously lives by the "me, my, mine" lifestyle. Everything is all about us, and what we want and immediate satisfaction or gratification from the things that we do in life. We always want someone to notice what we are doing, that we did it and we want to be acknowledged for it. Our wants and desires power so much of what we do and how we react to what others do and so on and so forth. Also, kind of piggybacking on that, we tend to believe or live by the idea that, "yeah it happens, but it's never gonna happen to me" which can be a major issue when it comes to decision making. This is because we don't think about how it affects anyone but ourselves, usually in the immediate sense rather than the long term.

    With that being said it can become an issue when we choose to ignore the other things going on around us like, "oh, someone else will get it." and then things like the trash epidemic and the state at which our planet and country is in now. We have become so self-absorbed that it's to hell with everything else. The places that we call home and the world that we know is falling apart and we are all just gonna sit by and watch like nothing is happening.

    I am tired of the mentality that we as a society live in, and how we try to desperately to look great on social media but do nothing about it in real life. It is time that things change and we are the ones changing it.
