5 Ways It's Always Worth It To Travel For That Concert High

Seeing concerts in your hometown is great; but have you ever seen your favorite artist in a city you've never been?

5 Ways It's Always Worth It To Travel For That Concert High
Kiahna White-Alcain

As you know, music has been and will always seem to be an ongoing passion of mine. There’s something about the beauty and enjoyment of concerts and venues and arenas that make you feel utterly free of everything and anything.

The act of going to concerts and hearing live music is something I’ve always seemed to crave. No matter what the mood may be, concerts always seem to lift it to a new level.

The feeling of being free and happy is all that emits; any bad mood you could’ve been feeling two hours ago is now gone, you’re just there and free.

There always seems to be controversy over the idea of traveling for concerts. No matter what, people always have something to say about what other people spend their money on. And you know what? Who cares! Traveling and concerts are two things that I will always crave.

Here are 5 reasons why it’s worth it to travel for concerts and why you should too:

1. You get to enjoy music in new places.

There’s something about hearing an artist or a band you like in your own hometown. But there’s something even bigger about hearing an artist you enjoy in a completely new city. Not only are you creating memories with that artist, but you’re now creating memories with that city and that venue. Those are memories no one else can take away.

2. You get to meet/make friends.

Not only does the luxury of traveling for concerts allow you to explore new places, but you also have the opportunity to meet up with friends or make new ones. In cities you don’t know, you always want the ins and outs of things to do. By traveling to cities you don’t know, you have the opportunity to make friends with the locals.

Traveling to new cities allows you to meet friends you’ve always wanted and that’s worth it in itself. There’s something even more special about connecting with friends who share the same love and appreciation for an artist as you. When you’re in the moment of your favorite song and you’re there with your best friends those connections are things that can never be replaced.

3. The experience.

As said, traveling for concerts is always an experience at home; but hearing and seeing an artist you enjoy in new cities or countries make that experience just that much better. You have the ability to fall in love completely with a new city, with a new sound. Being in new cities gives you different types of memories and experiences, things that you’ll always know to hold on to.

4. You get the ability to travel.

Not only do you get the bonus of hearing live music, but by traveling the county or to multiple cities for your favorite artist or band also gives you the luxury of getting to travel. Having the ability to spend money to travel is for sure a bonus, but if it’s worth it for you then there’s no room to judge.

5. You’ll never regret it.

No matter how much money you spend at the end of one summer, you’ll never regret spending that money you worked for on a concert you wanted to go to, in cities you might have never been. People are always going to have something to say about who and what you spend your money on. But at the end of the day, if music and traveling is what makes you happy, then that’s all of the reassurance you need.

Unfortunately, there are some people who don’t have the same luxury as others. But if you have the ability to save and travel, then do it! If that is what makes you happy, then it’s worth it. You’ll never regret spending money on the things you love.

In the end, if music makes you happy and that’s what you want to spend your money on, then it’s always worth it.

There are always going to be people that will grumble and complain about what you’re spending money on. But if you’re spending money on things that will lead you to happiness and joy, then it’s never a mistake.

Traveling and concerts are two things that can never be replaced. No matter where you go or what you see, the ability to hear live music in new cities is always a dream come true.

With the joy of summer approaching, you’re given more free time to do the things that you love. If those things are working as many hours you can in order to travel for the artists you love, then you better go for it.

If those concerts and those artists are what make you the happiest, then it’s always worth it.

Live music and the feelings that come along with it are things that can never ever be replaced. Don’t give that up for the sake of other people thinking they know what you should and shouldn’t spend your money on.

Money can’t buy happiness; but it can buy things pretty damn close.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
