The Survival Guide: 10 Must Haves You Need To Bring To A Concert

Post on February 05, 2016 | SOGO
You’ve received the news; your favourite band is coming to town! As you hurriedly call your friends and purchase your tickets, you start to daydream of that fine day where you can finally witness your favourite singer(s) strutting their stuff on stage and singing along to their songs amongst other die-hard fans.

But wait! As every seasoned concert-goer knows, there are several things that you need to prepare in order to make this day a memorable one. Whether you’re an avid concert-goer or this may be your first time, here’s a list of items you might need to have a checklist of:

1. Money
Certainly one of the most important items that you need to have! But don’t get carried away, just bring enough for you to buy food and water to snack and hydrate yourself throughout the day.

2. Powerbank
Make sure your phone battery is fully-charged as well! It goes without saying that you might be taking lots of photos and videos to commemorate that day, and this will definitely drain your phone’s battery. So powerbanks can definitely come in handy during these times.

3. Sunscreen
If you’re going to an all-day event, it is wise to bring these to keep you protected from the sun. Over-exposure of the sun causes sunburn, premature aging of the skin and wrinkling. So do your skin a favour and keep it well protected under the sun. Quick tip; choose a sunscreen that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.

4. Deodorant
The day is hot and the concert will be crowded. Obviously your body will tend to sweat. So it’s good to bring along deodorant to keep you smelling fresh even after the concert has ended.

5. Wet Wipes 
Feel fresh at any day of time with wet wipes! With just a dab, it can definitely cleanse and moisturise your skin. If your skin is sensitive, get wet wipes that are especially for facial use. There's even a few selection for those with acne-prone skin or dry skin. It’s also useful for when you need to wipe your hands but there’s no water in sight!

6. Breath Mints
Always a good idea to keep these in your bag, especially if you’re one of the chosen ones to have a meet and greet with your favourite singers!

7. Lip Balm
From the start until the end of the concert, your lips might be chapped and in dire need of moisture. An ideal lip balm is the one which contains ingredients of butter or honey as it benefits your lips the most. But of course, you  can always choose one with a tinge of colour for that added rosy look!

8. Travel-Size Perfume
Keep a small bottle of your favourite perfume wherever you go! Just a spritz of the scent will make it seem like you’ve just reached the concert venue.

9. Band-Aids
It’s a concert so there’s bound to be minor accidents and small cuts. So be prepared and have these ready when you (or even your friend) needs a band-aid to help that cut heal perfectly and prevent any infection from occurring!

10. The Tickets
The most important one of all! Before you head out of the house, check the tickets (3 times if need be!) just in case you forgot to put it inside your bag. Make sure to keep these in an envelope for safe-keeping.
