What You Need for a Concert in 2018

As festival season rolls around, more and more concerts and festivals are getting announced. Do you have any favorite artists playing soon?

Prepare before you go to a festival or concert so you ensure you will have the time of your life! Here what you need for a concert in 2018.


Unless you live right next to the venue where the show will be held, you need a plan. Figure out how you will get there there and back when going to a concert, festival or rave.

If you live relatively close, taking an Uber or driving yourself are easy options. If you drive, have a designated sober driver and money for parking in case there is no street parking available.

Public transportation is also a great option. Take the train, light rail or bus to you next event. Just be sure to check when the last one runs so you don’t get stuck in the city!

For further events, booking a cheap hotel or hostel may be the way to go. That way, you don’t have to deal with getting back home so late at night. Book ahead of time to avoid overpaying after the show.

A Portable Charger

At a big concert, rave, or festival service is likely to be spotty with so many people attending, which drains your battery. Plus, you will want to take some pictures and videos to share with your friends and family.

If your phone is out of battery and you need to find your friends at the end of the event, get ready to stay awhile. Even worse, if you planned to call an Uber, you may need to seek out a charger or end up paying more for a taxi.

Next time you go to a concert or rave, avoid these headaches and bring a portable charger. The lightweight and compact portable charger will stay out of the way as it charges your phone in your backpack or pocket.  

As small as a deck of cards, the Zendure A2 Portable Charger is perfect for a night out. It will fully recharge your phone throughout the night and still have battery to charge more. This small but mighty charger will triple the time before you have to plug your phone into an outlet.

If you need a more juice for a longer night or so a few friends can charge their phones too, the A3 10,000 mAh Portable Charger is the perfect choice. Bring this small portable charger with you, and easily last a whole festival on one charge.

Keeping your phone charged at a festival is a must. Not only will you be able to document the experience, but you have access to help or a ride if you need it. Stay safe and bring a portable charger with you.

The Right Clothing

Where is your upcoming concert, rave or festival located? Will it be at an indoor venue or outdoors? Is there a coat check? These are questions to find the answers to when deciding what to wear.

For colder outdoor weather, layers are ideal. Too hot? Put a layer on. Too cold? Take one layer off. Bring a small backpack so you don’t have to carry everything with your hands. And if rain is forecasted, bring an umbrella!

Comfortable shoes are a must for any music event. Often, you will be there for long hours and need some support.

Come Prepared to Your 2018 Music Events

Once you figure out transportation, what to wear and how to keep your phone charged, all you need to do is have the time of your life! At your next concert, rave or festival in 2018 have fun dancing the event away.
