A concert is the place to let loose, have fun, watch one of your favorite artists perform, and listen to live music with friends!
Here are 7 tips on how to have the best time at a concert:
1. Put the phone away!
It’s easy to get caught up and take an overload of photos, videos, and Snapchats. But by doing this, you miss the whole experience firsthand. Put the phone down and enjoy it with your eyes and ears.
2. Go with good people.
Nothing kills a potentially great experience like being with the wrong people, so choose your company wisely. If your friend is planning on bringing someone you don’t know, don’t hesitate to perform a name search online to see what comes up and who this person might be … you might want to change who you go with!
3. Eat well beforehand.
Avoid spending $30 on french fries at the concert venue. Eat a good meal before you head out so you won’t be hungry and miserable while the show is going on.
4. Stay hydrated & drink alcohol carefully.
Pace yourself with the alcohol! Especially if you like dancing, it’s very important to stay hydrated with water. Don’t drink too much or else you might miss the entire show from being sick. Also be sure to keep your drink on you at all times.
5. Dress appropriately.
If the concert is outdoors, check the weather and wear something that will keep you comfortable. If the tickets are general admission or you have designated seats, consider what you could wear to fit in and be content no matter where you go.
6. Beware of your surroundings.
Remember that you’re going to be in a busy, public place! It’s hard to find someone in a populated music venue if you get separated from one another, so keep your friends close. Constantly be aware of what’s going on around you to reduce your chances of falling victim to any mishaps.
And most importantly…
7. Just have fun!
Forget your worries at home and just have a good time. Enjoy the music you came to hear and the company you came to spend time with. You’re there to make memories … not stress. 🙂
