Summertime is when many artists tour from big arena and stadium shows to festivals and beach concerts. Seeing your favorite singer live is something everyone looks forward to but sometimes you need a few things to make the night one you won’t regret.
Here are the top 5 essentials to bring with you to a summer concert
#5. Bag Of Some Sort
This item goes for guys and girls. Many venues have stipulations on what kind of bags you can bring and what size. Make sure to check that out before you go. You will need a bag because if you don’t have pockets, you will still need to bring some essentials- wallet, poncho, charger, water/ snack (if it’s allowed), sunglasses, hand sanitizer, hair ties, and so much more.
#4 – Wallet
When going to a concert you’re going to probably want to buy merch and/ or food and drink, especially during the summer. In your wallet make sure you have your ticket(s), money, whether that’s a card or cash. And some form of ID. It is always good to have ID on you in case of emergency or if you want to buy an alcoholic drink.
#3 – Patience
This may sound odd, but if you get there early you will be standing in line for a long time in the heat and people may be pushing. Security check-in takes a while and they may tell you you cannot have certain items. Then the merch and food stands and bathroom lines may be crowded. Finally, sometimes it takes a while for the performer to come out on stage and it can get frustrating. Just have patience and wait for the music to start. It’ll all be worth it in the end
#2 – Comfortable Shoes
Don’t make the mistake of wearing flip-flops, sandals, heels, or uncomfortable shoes. You will be standing for a long time and may have to walk up and down steps. Plus, in open-toed shoes you could get stepped on or trip. Safety and comfort are very important when going to a concert.
#1 – Portable Charger
You are probably going to want to take pictures and videos of your favorite artists and will be Snapchatting most of the night, so you will want to bring a charger. Plus, for safety reasons, it is good to have your phone charged in case someone needs to get in touch with you.
