Going to a concert is one of the best ways to spend a night out. Many people have extremely high expectations when they attend a concert because they are often portrayed as amazing experiences, and a lot of the time they are. This means that planning a concert can be an extremely daunting task, with a lot of pressure on the organiser to get everything right.

There are three main things to focus on when you plan a concert. The first is the venue, and mainly the stage. The type of stage you need depends of the kind of concert you are holding. For example, if it's an outdoor gig for a small band, a mini stage might be the best bet as it's small and compact, so it's easy to put up and take down. Most of these stages also come with overhead cover, so if it rains all the equipment will be protected. However, if it's a performance from an orchestra or a choir, you might want to think about a levelled stage so that each member can be seen by the audience. The stage can have a big impact on the audience's experience, because if they cannot see what's happening, they won't enjoy it.

Another important aspect of concert production is sound. Obviously sound is a vital part of any concert, but the equipment you use is almost as important as the actual music being played. If you have a large audience, and you're using poor quality speakers, the members at the back of the audience will either have to suffer from bad quality sound, or they won't be able to hear it at all. Good quality speakers will ensure that even if not everybody is close enough to hear music from the stage, they will still be able to enjoy it through speakers as if it were being played right next to them.

Finally, to set the atmosphere of your concert you can use lighting. Professional lighting equipment will allow you to make sure our audience is in the right mood for your music. If you're using an indoor venue, you can use mood lighting on the walls and ceiling to set the atmosphere as your audience enter. With an outdoor venue, professional lighting can make any stage look stunning at night. One of the best things about lighting is that there are so many different types, ranging from pulsing strobe lights to soft floor lights. Lighting colour is also an important factor, as colour can easily affect somebody's mood.

Concert production is not an easy thing, but when all these aspects are covered, you'll be left with a great set up to your show. These things will provide the atmosphere and the quality, but what your audience experiences once your concert begins is up to you.
