There are more rock shows today than ever before. Have you been ever been to a rock show and suddenly realized you forgot something. There are lots of things to remember to bring with you. I will go over some of the most important things right now.
One of the most important things to remember is to bring the tickets. I can not tell how many times I go to a rock show and notice people who forgot their tickets. So remember bring the tickets.
Not all but most people over 21 like to drink. If you forget your ID you will not be served. So next time you are at an outdoor rock show just remember your ID.
Make sure to bring money with you. When you go to an outdoor rock show such as Vans Warp Tour there are literally hundreds of venders and bands selling their stuff. Bring some cash so you can buy your favorite bands items.
This may seem like a no brainier but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people wear sandels. These shows there are people everywhere and with sandels on your feet will get stepped on. Plus, a comfortable pair of shoes are necessary if your going to be on your feet all day.
Always remember your camera. Either digital or disposable are good choices. I always prefer a disposable camera just in case I lose it I’m only out a few dollars plus the pictures. Fun fact for you, some of the best outdoor rock show pictures came from fans.
Most rock shows have three or four bands. Some larger outdoor rock shows such as Vans Warp Tour have over 20 bands. A band schedule will help keep you on track and at the right stage for your favorite band.
Band Fan Stuff
Do you have a favorite band? Do you own a T-shirt from that band? If you do, wear it. IF you do not have a band fan stuff to wear to an outdoor rock show make sure you bring your money. Remember cash will be accepted everywhere credit cards may not so bring cash.
Sunscreen is one of the most overlooked items to bring to an outdoor rock show. I always bring along a travel size spray on sunscreen to the show. It costs about $2 from any local drugstore.
Always carry water on you at an outdoor rock show. So many people pass out from the heat every year. Do not let that happen to you. Bring a backpack with one bottle for every two hours you plan on being outside.
Most outdoor rock shows allow you to bring food. If you do not want to bring your own food be prepared to spend about $10 for a hot dog, chips, and a drink.
These are the most important things to bring to an outdoor rock show. Remember above all else have fun.
