Going to a concert is usually one of two things. First, it can be a lot of fun. Second, it can be a nightmare if you’re not prepared and haven’t planned ahead. It’s usually up to the concert go-er which one they choose. There are limiting factors that do not allow for maximum enjoyment, and here’s how you can best limit the limiting factors and enjoy your experience to the max.
One of the biggest problems when going to a concert is the traffic. There are sometimes tens of thousands (or hundreds of thousands…. or close to millions, if we’re talking Woodstock lol) of people trying to get into a single venue or space. Sometimes that space is located inside a city with ample parking, but most times you’ll find concerts out in the open or in the countryside, outside city limits. So you have to have a plan when it comes to traffic. One suggestion is to somehow ride a train, a trolley, take a taxi or Uber, or ride a bike. That way you’ll completely miss the traffic.
Many concert goers complain of the music being too loud. I’ve been to plenty of concerts myself that are way too loud. They just have the music blaring and it’s just absolutely revolting almost that you’re having to damage your eardrums because of trying to listen to music. I don’t get it how you can almost be a 1/2 mile away (as I have been for some concerts) and still have ears hurting at the end.
To go along with problem number 1 of traffic, once you fight the traffic, you’re going to need a place to park. In larger cities, this usually isn’t a problem. In the big country venues, it’s not usually a problem either (if you don’t mind walking almost an hour to your car. As a quick side note, just a few weeks back I was walking with the owner of a concrete construction company ( his name is Jose and he is an avid music fan! his site is www.FresnoConcreteContractors.com (and by the way, he gave me a great way to help recover from a hangover!) to a concert, and we had talked about how a particular place had absolute ZERO parking. So we just decided to walk almost 1.5 hours which we ended up covering the distance of about 5 miles, which was great because it saved us time in the end. Read More
