Key Features of a Concert Venue

What to Look for in a Concert Venue

When searching for a concert venue for your next show or tour, there are several features you should seek out. The ideal venue will check all the boxes and make sure your show has the most potential for success. Today in the Rocky Mount Event Center blog, we’ll talk about some of these features.


One of the biggest factors you need to consider when choosing your concert venue is location. Location plays an important role for several reasons. For instance, you don’t want to book a concert in a location that won’t be able to draw a sizeable crowd.

Besides using location to draw a bigger crowd, you also need somewhere that has sufficient parking. If you plan on putting on a large concert, the venue should be able to accommodate your guests.


You need to make sure your concert venue has the capacity for the amount of tickets you plan to sell. Ideally, your show is going to sell out. If that’s the goal, then you need to make sure your venue will be able to allow for that, according to their building and fire safety codes. This also means having sufficient seating and a large enough pit area.

Features and Amenities

Although not as important as the above points, you still want your concert venue to have features and amenities to make your guests happy. Things such as concession stands, VIP areas, backstage areas, and green rooms for the talent are all appreciated aspects of a venue.

Customer Service

Finally, you want your concert venue to work with you. You want to choose a venue that will work to accommodate your needs and make things as easy as possible for you.
