These insightful tips are sure to make a concert an enjoyable experience one.

Many teenagers enjoy the enthralling experience of screaming the words to their favorite songs and seeing a favorite artist play in front of them. Concerts are an experience like no other, but if you come unprepared, it can be a bit of a toss up. It is important to make the most of every moment, and this is easier to do when you come ready for the event. Below are ten tips to ensure a great time with friends.

  1. Always bring cash to concerts because more often not you’ll need it. Whether it’s overpriced water for a summer show  that is a little too hot for comfort or a t-shirt with a check-out line longer than the entirety of the concert, you’ll want to be ready with cash if they do not take card.

  2. Bring a portable charger because SnapChatting the entire concert on your story is sure to drain your battery. Especially if the concert is in a part of town that is not familiar, you’ll definitely want to have enough battery left to navigate you home.

  3. Look up  the venue because you will want to know if it’s inside or outside. You might need to know whether you’re going to need a jacket if it’s cool inside or if you need bug spray.

  4. Eat before you go because the concert might be longer than you initially thought, and you can’t have a great time on an empty stomach.

  5. Wear a crossbody bag so you will not have to hold a bag  the entire time and so you can carry your essentials with ease.

  6. Make sure you have a departure set time  your friends agree on so you can account for traffic and not be late.

  7. Drink lots of water before you leave– you will most likely be dehydrated after giving your all to singing all the lyrics to every song.

  8. Create a Spotify or Apple music playlist with all the songs the artist will perform before hand. You might be called out as a fake fan if you do not know all the words to every song.

  9. Pack a bag with gum, your tickets, a portable phone charger, a water bottle if it will fit, cash and hand sanitizer. You will thank me later.

  10. Wear comfortable shoes because your feet will be throbbing by the end of the night if you decide to wear your favorite heels. Your shoes will not be shown in most of the pictures you take, anyway.

With these tips,  your concert experience will be the good kind of memorable– one where you were ready for all the elements.
