What to Wear to a Concert Venue (and What to Leave at Home)

Going to a concert is a great experience. Everyone loves seeing their favorite artists perform live. However, the experience can be marred a bit if you’re not dressed comfortably for the occasion. If you’ve ever wondered what you should and shouldn’t wear at a concert, Rocky Mount Event Center is here to help.

Where and When is the Concert?

The most important factor to consider is where the concert is taking place. Is the concert indoors or outdoors? If it’s an outdoor show, is it hot or cold? Is the concert being held during the day or at night? Ask yourself these questions when picking out your outfit. If the concert is outdoors, make sure to dress for the weather. If the concert is indoors, you won’t want to wear clothes that are too warm or a lot of layers. A room full of people can warm up quickly, so you don’t want to be sweating throughout the concert.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

No matter what, you’ll want to wear some comfortable shoes. High heels, sandals, and flat shoes are all going to have you hurting by the end of the night. Some comfortable tennis shoes with cushioning will ensure you’re comfortable throughout the concert and your feet will thank you for it when you get home.


Ideally, if you can leave most of the jewelry at home, you might be more comfortable and less worried about it. There can be a lot of movement at concerts, and the last thing you want to do is lose your accessories because they fall off in the crowd. In general when it comes to concerts, the less is more approach is best.

Dress Comfortably

Concerts can go on for several hours, so you want to make sure you’re comfortable for the duration. Just like with shoes, the comfier your clothes are, the happier you’ll be during the show. You can still be fashionable and comfortable at the same time, but also keep in mind that everyone there will be paying attention to the artist on stage, so you don’t necessarily have to dress to impress.
