The Gigging Abroad Guide

Going to a concert abroad? Here are some tips to help you out

Safeconcerts is working in collaboration with others to give you some ideas of what you can do to make sure that you have a good (and safe) concert experience when you go off to foreign climes - this will be a 'work in progress' so if you've got some good ideas you'd like to share with others send them to us so we can include them in the guide.

Safeconcerts wants everybody who attends a concert or festival to have a good time and to take home memories to treasure and mull over during those long winter nights when you're busy anticipating the next years round of festival fun. There are some amazing professionals out there who also want to be certain that fans have the best time ever and they've helped us put this guide together - so arm yourself with some basics and get out there and have fun!

The introduction of 'budget' or ''low cost' airlines has made it cheaper and easier than ever before to travel across the world. It's now comparatively easy to combine a short break and see your favourite artist in concert, the UK has the best guidelines for concert safety but be aware that these are not necessarily replicated in other countries. At safeconcerts we want to ensure that you have a great time whether in the UK or abroad so we've put together a survival strategy that will hopefully serve to give you a few ideas that could make sure that your trip is a great one.
