Not Sure What To Bring To A Concert? Here Are 3 Things You Shouldn't Forget
There's nothing quite like your first Live concert.
The sights, sounds, and excitement aren't something that a YouTube video can replicate. That's why people are spending more money to see their favorite artists live.
But before you head out to that awesome event, you'll need the right stuff.
If you're wondering what to bring to a concert, we've got you covered. Make sure you have these three things!
1. A Fully-Charged Cellphone
At first glance, a phone might not seem like the most important thing to bring to an event. But take it from us, you'll be glad that you charged that battery beforehand.
Most venues accept mobile tickets these days, which is great for those worried about losing their tickets. Of course, to retrieve a mobile ticket you'll have to have enough battery life to pull up the QR code.
And naturally, you're going to want to memorialize the night. What better way to show off to your social media followers than by taking a great selfie?
Just make sure to follow basic concert etiquette, so you don't ruin anyone else's enjoyment of the show.
A phone can also help you get in touch with the company you purchased your tickets from. If the event is canceled or your tickets were never delivered, you may be eligible for a refund.
Undoubtedly, paying with a card is the most comfortable and most convenient way to complete a transaction. However, you'll still want to hit up an ATM before heading to the show.
While most facilities are equipped to handle credit or debit card transactions, it's still best to pay with cash. Otherwise, you may have to pay a few extra dollars in fees, especially if you need to retrieve some money from the venue's ATM.
While merch booths won't usually charge an extra fee for a card transaction, paying with cash is still the fastest way to grab your new swag and get back to your seat.
Also, most venues with paid parking only accept cash. If you have to jump out of line and head to the nearest ATM, you'll risk missing out on the start of the show.
3. Comfortable Clothing
Here's a pro tip: always check the weather before heading to an event. What you're wearing -- especially if the venue is outdoors -- can have a significant impact on your enjoyment of the show.
A good rule of thumb is to dress as comfortably as possible.
Start by picking out a comfortable pair of tennis shoes. You'll likely have to do a good bit of walking and standing, so something with arch support is a good bet.
You'll also want to put on a comfortable shirt and jeans or pants with deep enough pockets that you can store your keys, wallet, and tickets.
Final Thoughts on What to Bring to a Concert
Before you head to see your favorite artist, we suggest contacting the venue to see what is and isn't permitted.
While every venue will allow the three items we've listed above, most concert halls and event spaces have different rules for things like backpacks, water bottles, jewelry, and more.
In many cases, the best way to learn what to bring to a concert is simply by asking the venue directly.
So now that you know what to bring, all that's left to do is grab your ticket!
