The summer and fall is the perfect time to have a concert. If you are an up and coming artist or if you want to throw a show to get the name of your business out there, you will need to make all of the arrangements. When it comes to throwing a successful show, you will need to do a number of different things just right. Here are three tips for throwing a successful concert in the park during the summer.
Splurge on the audio visual
The biggest item in your budget for any show is the audio visual component. Rent a stage set up that comes complete with lighting, audio sound, and special effects. Hiring an AV rental along with the staff means that you will have all that you need for the artist to pull off their show. Be sure to book a contract with the audio visual firm to provide you with staff to help with the setup and lighting for the show. Ask the artist ahead of time if they will need any particular special effects, headphones, or audio needs so that you have all particular equipment on-site.
Offer free tickets to VIPs
Many people will come to a concert in the park if they know that artist that they like are performing. Many more will also come if they know that they know that some of their favorite artists, actors, and business people will be in attendance. Offer free tickets and perks to celebrities and important people through your city. If you do not have a lot of perks, you can offer to have a portion of the money made by the show go towards a charity of their choice. The longer your list of VIPs, the more likely your business is to sell out.
Create a theme
Parks in and of themselves are beautiful spaces. The one issue is that parks tend to be mostly green space rather than eye-catching spots. Create a theme for the show and set up the park to project this theme. For instance, you can have a theme of an animal and set up balloons, costumes, and banners with the animal on them. You can also have a theme that features a more abstract idea such as a word or a specific color. The theme is also likely to become the name that the show is known for. Consider a reusable theme or concert name, so that if the concert is a smash hit, you will be able to throw the show each summer.
