The Ultimate Concert Guide for Music Lovers

Concert Venues are a great place to hear amazing music! Looking to host a concert soon? Here are a few tips for the ultimate concert guide for music lovers.


Creating Memorable Concert Experiences

Choose a Great Concert Venue

Your location is crucial to the success of your event. Make sure you pick a space that has everything you need for your event. You will want to choose a location that is big enough for the amount of people you are expecting, but not too big as well. A venue that is too large will cause your event to look like people didn't show up, even if you have a good number present.

Plan Ahead of Time

The earlier you can plan for this show, the better. There are a ton of details to figure out for any event so don't wait until the last minute. Even if you are unsure about some major things, other things can be determined along the way. Your venue is going to be one or the largest decisions that will need to be decided besides the actual performers.

Have the Right Equipment

When it comes to a concert, you will want to make sure you have all the equipment you need to have a successful show. Once you have selected a venue, connect with the venue staff to see what they have available to the clients. Many times, venues will have solid equipment for performers. Check that out first before you decide to rent anything you will need.

You will also want to see the venue in person or connect with the staff to make sure your equipment can plug in the way you are hoping. You don't want to be surprised on the day of the big event!

Comprehensive Event Management Services

Don't do this alone! While you might be the expert in throwing a banger concert, you might know how to run an event. Here are a couple of event management services that might make your concert that much better.

Event Planner. Who is actually planning your event? Who is getting all the insurance figured out and the layout of the event space? An event planner can be your best friend when trying to run an event. Consider hiring even just this one role to help make your life so much easier.

AV/Tech. Almost every venue will have some kind of AV/tech staff member who will help to run your show. You will provide the talent and most likely additional equipment; however, you will have to work with the venue team to make sure everything sounds great. Ask the event staff if you can set up a site-tour before the big day to make sure you and their team are all on the same page.

Event Coordinator. This can be the same person as your event planner, but it could also be someone different or an additional role. This is the person who will run your event on the actual day. With this person in place, you can either sit back and enjoy the concert or you can cater to the band.
