It’s finally the day you get to see your favorite artist live, and now it’s time to prepare for the show. Whether you’re attending a show inside of a stadium, or a small venue, these are the things you need to bring with you.

  • Portable Phone Charger

    It’s time for the show to start and you may have already used up all of your battery with pre-concert fun. The last thing you want is to be stranded at the venue with not enough battery to capture your favorite moments from the show or not be able to access your mobile ticket. Having a portable charger will not only save you when you need it, but you can also continue to record your epic night.

  • Driver's License/State ID

    Whether it’s picking up tickets at will call or buying a drink at the bar, you need your ID. It’s also important to bring with you because some shows and venues have age restrictions where you have to be 18+ to attend.

  • Sharpie

    If you’re lucky enough to meet an artist or one of the members of the band, you’ll want to make sure you’re able to get an autograph! Grab a sharpie or a pen and keep it in your pocket.

  • Debit Card

    When going to a concert, you’ll want to make the most out of it. For many, this includes spending money on food, drinks, and merchandise. The majority, if not all, venues are starting to go cash-less, so you’ll want to have your debit card on hand for those extra expenses.

  • Your Concert Ticket

    You’ll need your ticket to get into the show. Nowadays, physical tickets are a thing of the past. Mobile tickets are the new way to get yourself into the venue. Simply add your tickets to your phone’s wallet for easy access at the door.

  • Bag

    Within the past couple of years, stadiums have implemented the clear bag policy for sporting events that require attendees to bring clear bags for security reasons. In the past few months, arenas are also slowly starting to implement the same policy.

    If a clear bag is not required for your venue, a small cross-body bag or a fanny pack will work great to hold your concert essentials.
