It is easy to go crazy when you want to pull off the most exciting concert event, ever. However, going all out doesn’t always mean good. Not to your attendees and not to your pocket, that I guarantee. If this is your first time to put together a concert, you might be wondering about which concert equipment you need. Well, this article would help you determine the essential concert equipment (of just the right amount), to pull off an incredibly satisfying concert.
Now, concerts can happen even without a stage, meaning a flat floor. However, it is with the help of a stage that the concert experience is heightened up. A stage gives emphasis to your performers/artists and gives a more dramatic feel for the audience. If you have rented a place without a good working stage, you can easily just rent a portable platform to use as a stage. There are plenty of sizes available for portable stages for you to choose from. This is a very smart way to go as well as you can control the size of the stage and leave ample room for your expected crowd.
What’s a concert without sounds? Well not a concert I guess. And regardless of what kind of concert you are holding, it is very important to have a working and perfectly synced sound system. You can leave this to the experts to make sure that it is tippy-top shape. Hire a group of professionals to handle your sound system so they can bring the perfect concert equipment for your concert event. A faulty sound system can definitely ruin your concert so you need to ensure that the concert equipment you have is really “concert ready”.
You may not realize this, but lighting is very important in concerts. As it is with anything else. But it is one important factor that determines the success of an event. Why? Because lighting provides emphasis to the stage and the crowd. Because there are endless dramatic effects you could use to empower a moment so your crowd could feel a certain string of emotions. Lighting effects give your event the glow it needs fit for the moment, to take people into that moment.
Using an AV System for your event is mandatory if you have a huge venue. An AV System will ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the event, especially those standing or sitting at the very back of the location. If you have planned out to have people standing, seeing from the far end of the crowd would be a sure struggle with people blocking the view most definitely. In fact, if you really have a wide space for the event, the use of multiple AV Systems to project a real-time video of the stage is truly important.
This is not mandatory, although there is no denying that special effects could provide a different kind of feel for your concert. You could set up a grand entrance for your band or performer to pump up the crowd. You could also use special effects for the ending of the concert to cap off the impeccable event. Of course, you could also use special effects for special segments to add extra thrill to a moment. Perhaps some confetti or smoke to give extra texture to when the band starts to give a party feel to the crowd.
I hope this guide has been helpful to you for your event. Remember, a concert is all about having fun and highlighting the talent up on stage. So make sure you choose your concert equipment wisely. And should you be hiring professionals, make sure that they are all more than capable to deal with your needs and lead your event to its success.
