When you attend an outdoor concert, take into account the weather and sun exposure when deciding what to wear. Uncomfortable shoes or clothing that is too hot and restrictive can detract from your enjoyment of the concert.
Things You'll Need
- Comfortable clothing
Find a trusted weather forecast for the day or evening of the outdoor concert. When your outdoor concert is a rain-or-shine event and rain is in the forecast, bring a poncho or rain slicker.
Pay attention to the heat index and relative humidity as well as the temperature. High levels of humidity make the day seem hotter than the temperature alone indicates. Compensate by drinking more water.
Keep your skin covered to prevent excessive sun damage at an outdoor concert that takes place during the day. Choose light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.
Add a hat to keep the sun off your sensitive scalp. Hats also block the sun's glare so you can see the performers on stage.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Outdoor concerts are equal parts standing and walking, and you may be on your feet all day.
Tips & Warnings
- Although sunscreen is not clothing, you should regard it as a valuable addition to your outdoor concert outfit.
- Many outdoor concerts last all day and into the early part of the evening. When you live in a region that experiences extreme changes in temperature between night and day, have a sweater handy for after nightfall.
