6 things to think about when you book an outdoor show [MusicThinkTank]
Outdoor shows will be roaring back this summer, and while the fun, festival environment is sure to be a delight for all involved, there are some important considerations to keep in mind as performer to ensure the best best experience possible for all those involved.
In this latest piece on MusicThinkTank, contributor M Banks weighs six important considerations bands and artists should be mindful of when performing outdoor concerts this summer.
“A sudden thunderstorm isn’t uncommon in the hot months of summer. And while a mid-day rain shower can provide some much-needed relief from the heat, it can also pose potential issues.

Accessories such as ponchos, umbrellas, and hats may be helpful if your show would continue through the rain.“
