There are very few people who dont enjoy a good concert. From small local shows at your neighborhood pub to sold-out performances at a 5,000 seat stadium, live music inspires, excites and invigorates. Though in order to have the best event possible, there are some things you need to keep in mind.

Crowd Control

Concert crowd control is an important component of any live performance. Youll need to think about where people will line up to get in and how quickly they’ll be able to get out once the show is over. You can read more about why crowd control is important at


Security is an important component of effectively managing concert crowds. At a bare minimum, you should have someone ensuring only ticketed guests enter the facility. However, these days it is recommended that you invest in having security officers stationed throughout your event in case anything should happen. It will increase your event expenditures but will provide incredible ease of mind so everyone can feel safe and enjoy the show.

Safety Training

Having staff who are properly trained in the following areas is a really good idea.

  • First Aid
  • CPR
  • Emergency evacuation procedures
  • How to use an AED

Ideally, all of the vendors at your event will possess basic safety training as well.
