For many music-lovers, the experience of going to a state-of-the-art arena to see their favorite band or artist perform is all part of the fun, whereas for others, an intimate gig held in a small venue is the ideal way to enjoy live music.
Whilst the type of venue you choose to see your favorite acts is entirely based on personal taste, it is worth debating over the pros and cons of each before purchasing tickets.
It goes without saying that the type of band or artist that you are going to see will determine the type of venue. For globally-recognised bands, the venue will more than likely be a large scale stadium to accommodate for the large volume of fans. Up-and-coming artists on the other hand, will have a smaller fan base and be performing in lesser-known venues with smaller capacities.
It’s true that some bands work better in larger venues than others. While some bands will thrive off dancing crowds and special staging effects, the sound quality and visual aesthetics of acoustic artists with stripped back performances may fail to work in larger venues. CONTINUE READING
