Concerts are exciting events we look forward to for weeks and even months. You get to see in the flesh your favourite musician playing on the stage. For quite a few, it can be a surreal experience. We have people who are concert geeks seeing every event they can get a ticket on while the diehard fans save up to see their idols live.

It does not matter what type of can you are, what matters is how you protect yourself during the concert and after the concert. It is not unusual for people to pass out in a concert or, with the advent of terrorism and the targeting of public events, getting killed. It is up to you to protect yourself so you do not become a victim of circumstance.

Remember, it is always better to be safe than to be sorry. So read on to find out these excellent tips to keep you safe while having fun in the concerts you love:

Stay hydrated at all times

There is nothing truer for concert goers. The place is usually packed to the brim with screaming dancing bodies and it is inevitable that the screaming dancing body is you. Doing such a physical activity is bound to make you sweat some.

Concert shows on average lasts two hours so it just so happens you are going to lose a lot of body fluids. The best way to tackle this problem is to drink a lot of fluids, preferably water, before attending a concert. You may also decide to carry some fluids with you just so in case you need to replenish. It is better to do this so you do not collapse at the event out of exhaustion.

Dress appropriately

This is essential. Concerts are done indoors or outdoors. When it's an indoor concert, it is best to wear something light. The heavier your clothes the more bodily fluids you are going to shed. For outside concerts, it will be more appropriate to wear heavier clothing so you do not catch a cold. But on the whole, it is best to watch out for the weather as this will determine what outfit is best for you on concert day.

Protect your cash

This is concert 101. A lot of people attend concerts. Civilized people like you as well as thieves and robbers. There are people who go to concerts solely for the purpose of robbing other people. Do not be a victim. Protect your money by keeping it in a safe and secure place. This goes for your phone and other accessories as well.

Watch out for the Exit Points

This is one of the crucial tips as it can mean the difference between life and death. Memorize the exits areas once at the venue. Always make sure you are near an exit point whatever you may be doing. Like was said earlier, better be safe than to be sorry.
