In order to blow your audience away, a little bit of planning is required. You have to have the right equipment and the right stage. Here are some ways to supercharge your gig.

Find a Good Venue

Location is everything when it comes to attracting your audience. Depending on the type of music that you’re playing will determine the size of the venue you need. The size and shape of the venue will dictate the quality of your sound. Smaller venues are good if you’re just starting out. You don’t want to be playing to a nearly empty room. This will degrade your sound quality. Larger venues will require equipment that is designed to amplify the music. Select your venue based on the size of the audience you’re hoping to attract.

Organize a Charity Event

You can get more people to attend your event if it is for a cause. Team up with a charity that appeals to you. This will set your tone as a band. You may find that you have more fans if you stand for a good cause. Find a charity that uses its resources in a good manner. You don’t want your show to be upstaged by a scandal surrounding the charity of your choice. This charity can share in a lot of the costs of advertising. This will allow you to focus on getting ready for the event.

Choose the Right Equipment

Having the right equipment allows you to worry about performing. With any equipment, you need to have protections in place. Some companies, like Enercon Engineering Inc., know that you should make sure that switchgear for the electrical circuits is being used. This will prevent the circuits from overloading while you’re pushing your equipment to the max. An electrical surge could be a costly mistake. It could fry your equipment. You would then have to spend your money replacing your equipment before you could set up another show.

Promote Your Event

Get the word out there about your upcoming event. The best way to increase attendance is to let people know the specifics. Start advertising well in advance. Let people know about any attendance restrictions that are in place. Encourage people to purchase their tickets early so that they don’t miss out. Use social media to your advantage. This is free advertising. Get your fans to promote you online. Offer incentives to those that are willing to do so.

Planning a successful show involves choosing the right location and having the right equipment. There are other factors that will help to supercharge your venue. Use these tips to maximize your performance.
