If you have never attended a concert before, then you might feel completely lost in a crowd of people who are seemingly at ease in the mass of pulsing life surrounding them.
Here are a few helpful tips that will make your concert experiences a positive memory for a long time to come.
Dress comfortably. Sometimes even getting to the main stage can be tiring, let alone standing for long hours in the same place and not being able to move around easily. Depending on the time of year and climatic conditions, dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes.
Take only what is absolutely necessary with you.
If you have general admission tickets, it might make sense to get there quite early as this can be an opportunity to get really close to the stage. Remember that many will also have the same idea, so arriving as early as possible is best. Also, make sure you have some breathing space to avoid getting squashed.
If you can, take in a bottle of water and find a place where you can’t easily lose your balance. Before the concert starts, try and look out for the exit signs which are closest to you.
Keep calm. Do not let yourself get caught up in the heat of the moment and push or elbow others. Space is usually limited and losing your cool will get you nowhere except possibly being kicked out.
It is a good idea to get to know the band better. Make sure you have gone through some of their music before going to the concert to refresh your memory and get yourself pumped for the event. Singing along with a crowd is definitely something you should have on your bucket list.
When it comes to leaving, the best is to hang around for a while until most of the crowds have dispersed. It is then so much easier to leave the venue without much trouble.
