Things to Consider When Playing Your First Outdoor Concert

You can’t blame yourself if you are pretty excited to play in your first outdoor concert. Since it is outdoor, anything can and will happen. Everyone would want to have a lot of fun and there is very little the security could do to stop them from doing it. Some people may drink a bit too much so they end up fighting with other music fans. The important thing is everyone gets to have a lot of fun.

Keep Dogs on Leashes

There will surely be fans who will bring their dogs to the concert. When that happens, always remind them to keep dogs on leashes. Besides, there is a possibility that they may escape. When that happens, it is going to be hard to retrieve the dogs due to the number of people in the outdoor concert. The dog can go around exploring the place and will lose track of the people around him. What’s worse, someone may take the dog home if she finds the animal too cute to ignore.

Number of Portable Toilets

You know all attendees would need to use the bathroom at one point in the concert. Thus, better have a lot of portable toilets in the outdoor concert. That would prevent a long line from happening as you know the fans would want to get back to watching the concert as soon as possible. It would be best to put a lot of portable toilets in a V shape formation at opposite sides of the concert so that the attendees won’t have to walk a long distance. Also, there should be someone assigned to clean the portable toilets as some people may get them dirty which won’t be good for the next user.

Preparing for Rain

There is always the chance that it will rain so better bring some umbrellas to distribute to the crowd in case they were not able to bring any umbrellas. If it was sunny in the afternoon, you can’t really blame them for not doing so. After all, it is a pretty big hassle if you have to carry a huge umbrella to a music festival unless it is something light that you can put inside your bag. There should also be some covered parts of the outdoor field so that is where everyone will go in case it rains.

Overall, there are a lot of things to consider when staging an outdoor concert for a first time. It is far from being an easy thing. When you get the hang of it, you are going to love every second of it. Nothing would make you happier than seeing the contented look on the faces of your fans. Hence, better do everything in your power to make them enjoy the experience. Make sure to arrive pretty early to the concert so that you can make sure that everything will go as planned. You would not want to regret when it is too late to do something about it.
