Save yourself from a disaster and have the best concert experience with these tips and tricks.
Concerts can be memorable and exciting. Some of a music fan's most vivid memories are from shows they have seen and every attendee at a show deserves to have the same experience. A live show is what you make of it and the most important part of going to a concert is being able to enjoy it! With these tips, your experience may be even better.
1. Print your tickets and have them on your phone
There can always be an issue with your tickets, so be sure to have proof of purchase. I recommend printing them and having them on your mobile device as well.
2. Arrive on time for the acts you want to see
This is something that takes many people a while to learn! If you already know you are not a fan of the opening act and have heard their music, do not torture yourself. If you show up on time for the performers you want to see, you'll be more energized and excited.
3. Charge everything you will need for the show in advance
If you're bringing a camera, charge it fully before the show. If you are planning on recording anything with your phone, charge it prior to the show as well to avoid it dying before or during your favorite song.
4. Listen to the artist's setlist
A concert will not be as fun if you don't know the songs! Look up the artist's setlist online and learn as many of the songs as you can before the show.
5. Don't film everything
If you film everything, you will not have as much fun and may not remember the show well. Record your favorite songs or a few good moments, but enjoy the concert! You can always look up videos on Youtube afterward and will most likely not be watching those videos very much afterward.
Good luck with your next concert!
