  2. You should check out the rules of the concert. Find out whether you are allowed to take pictures or record the concert. Most concerts have restrictions on these policies.
  3. It is a good idea to go to the venue early because that way you will get better seat to enjoy the concert. If you are lucky, you might even get the front row seats.
  4. Once you get to the concert venue, you must guard your spot, else other people will take it. Once the concert starts, the crowd starts pushing. So, you should not leave your place.
  5. The buses that take the musicians to the venue are usually kept behind the venue. If you can go early to the venue then you might sneak at the back to see if you can find any of your favorite musicians. If you are lucky then you will manage to get an autograph and a photograph too! You can also try this trick at the end of the concert when the musicians are about to leave the venue.
  6. You can choose to go to smaller concerts in a smaller venue. That way, there will be less crowd and you will get to see your favorite artists up close.
  7. Try to go to the concert in groups. That way, you will enjoy it more. There will be lots of shouts and laughs which you will enjoy.
  8. Let the music flow through you. As it’s a rock concert, you should feel the vibe, loud sound and the beat. Dance along with it.

Music is something universal. It eliminates the gaps across people, ages, cultures, etc. Concerts are a great way to meet new people without any boundaries.
