Music on TV stations or on the radio can get you hooked. But anyone who has been infected with the “concert virus” is not satisfied with that. So let’s go to the concerts of your favorite band, whether nearby or at distant event locations. With the following tips, your concert trip will be a unique experience every time and everywhere.
Tip 1: Plan not only for the concert but also for the location of the event
It’s worked out! Finally, the tickets are bought. How exactly should the concert tour run before and after the stage show? If you have tickets for the standing room, you have to wait a long time for your seat near the stage in front of the stadium or arena. There is hardly any time left for a stroll through the city. If you were lucky enough (and wanted to) and have tickets for seats in your hands, you can combine your visit to the concert with other activities. After all, there are still many hours left before admission, even when you arrive for seats. Whether to persevere or spend the waiting time comfortably: Couples and groups should agree on this when buying the ticket. Because if you don’t know what to do with yourself during the waiting hours, you may be missing out on a unique opportunity to get to know the city or area around the concert. Discrepancies on the day of arrival also lead to unnecessary tension when several concert-goers arrive together. Waiting time can certainly be combined with a visit to the next pool or another local attraction. If you like and have brought enough time with you, you can also combine the hours after the concert with some more new, joyful impressions through good planning.

Tip 2: Prepare for comfortable waiting times
Between ticket purchase and admission to a well-attended concert, there are hours or a full day. But hardly any concert-goer sits idle in a boarding house during this time. Once you’ve got the first row in front of your favorite star’s stage, don’t leave your seat now. Ok, in the group two or three people can always stretch their legs. But as the hours go by, it gets tight to get back in line for admission. So the motto is: bring your slack! The well-filled backpack offers a little comfort when sitting. A yoga mat has little luggage and weight. It is a comfortable base for sitting cross-legged or – when rolled up – a great pillow. Depending on the distance to the concert, collapsible and foldable camping chairs can also relieve the legs. The same utensils for the waiting time are also ideal for an overnight stay outdoors. This is a tip for concert-goers who couldn’t get hold of any accommodation for afterward or simply forgot to book in the exuberance of anticipation.
Tip 3: Choose accommodation cleverly
Die-hard concert-goers may wrinkle their noses at this tip. Only the “rich” can afford accommodation in hotels or guesthouses, according to campers and those who sit on mats. But what speaks against a little comfort after the exhausting concert hours? The following aspects are important when choosing accommodation:
Well-attended concerts in metropolises or with particularly famous artists also mean fully booked accommodations near the stadium, hall, or arena. The rooms are occupied by regular visitors up to a year in advance. At the latest when the ticket has been successfully purchased, accommodation options must be sought.
When choosing accommodation, proximity to the concert location is important. It can be exhausting to use the bus or train or walk to the guesthouse for hours after a night of concerts lasting several hours.
Choosing the right accommodation also includes planning enough time after the concert. As full as it was in the hours of waiting before admission, it gets as full afterward in the local transport. The hustle and bustle can be endured better if the concert-goers first let the hurried crowds go away. Then the way to the accommodation is much more relaxed.
Conclusion for music lovers and concert obsessive
The coveted tickets for the next concert are finally on the table! Without planning steps, enjoying the show location can quickly lead to frustration and problems. But with early preparation, the day of arrival, the waiting time before admission, and the concert itself is guaranteed to be a unique, positive experience. Do you have more questions about concerts?
