An outside concert venue can take more time in order to prepare for the event. You have to take into account the number of people that will attend and any permits that may be required. Here are some of the things that you’ll need to take into account so that you can provide the attendees with a fun and safe experience.

Plan Ahead for Numbers

Figure out how many people are planning on attending your event. This may make the difference about whether you need to set up crowd control features so that no one will suffer from an injury. The time of day for the event will also need to be factored into the equation. There may be different permits that will need to be obtained as well as additional security that will need to be hired for the day of the event.

Install First Aid Stations

Injuries will occur when you get large crowds of people together for an event. This could be that someone trips and falls or even that some of your attendees get into a shoving match. Have first aid stations with trained personnel in order to deal with any injuries that occur while your attendees are on the premises. The number of personnel that will be required to work at these booths will depend on the popularity of your event.

Invest in Bathroom Facilities

Another consideration that you’ll need to make is where your attendees are going to be able to use the restrooms. Porta potties are a popular option because they can easier be trucked out once the event has finished. Make sure to order enough of them to accommodate the number of attendees. You don’t what people to miss the show because they were standing in line for too long. Another consideration may be that people may choose to relieve themselves in an inappropriate place.

Erect Hydration Areas

Hydration becomes extremely important if your event is scheduled during the heat of the day or there is alcohol allowed on the premises. You are responsible for the safety and well-being of those that are attending your event. Having hydration facilities available may decrease the chances of someone suffering from heat exhaustion or alcohol poisoning. You may even want to set up cooling stations for your attendees.

There are all types of facilities that you’ll need to consider providing in order to keep your attendees happy. Use these tips to get you started on planning for your outside concert venue.
