7 Helpful Tips for a Successful Livestream Concert

Livestream concerts have been very common for many artists worldwide, especially during the pandemic when people weren’t allowed to go outside or be inside a venue full of people.


But it was also a blessing in disguise for many artists, including the up-and-coming ones, as online platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok have created a level playing ground for all music artists out there. If your favorite musician has planned a livestream concert, then this is your chance to make the most out of this convenient yet enjoyable experience. 

In this blog post, we will be sharing helpful tips on how you can attend a successful livestream concert. Of course, that starts with having high speed fiber internet but we’ll explain more about that below. Let’s start!

1. Invest in a Decent Pair of Speakers or Headphones

You don’t have to buy an expensive sound system for this. You just need to invest in a decent listening device like an earphone or external speaker to make sure you’ll be able to hear the online performance of your favorite music artist in the best quality. You can find a lot of decent speakers and headphones on your local stores and even online like Amazon or eBay that aren’t expensive but are of good quality. 

2. Make Sure Your Internet Connection Is Up to the Task

Watching a livestream can be bandwidth-extensive, especially if you’re watching in high-definition. Having high-speed internet is a plus, but you don’t actually need to have the best internet plan out there. You just need a reliable internet connection like cable or satellite internet with enough bandwidth to handle the task. 

Also, if you want to have the best experience possible without the lags, try disconnecting all unnecessary devices on your WiFi during the online concert to free up bandwidth. This may seem simple but it can work wonders. 

3. Get Interactive as Much as You Can

The best thing about the internet is that it knows no boundaries – just like music. Whatever and wherever you are, as long as you enjoy the same music (even if it’s in a foreign language), it would feel like you’re in one community or family. So during the livestream, most platforms have the comments section where you can voice out whatever you want to say about the performance or even share your excitement with other fans. This will make your experience much more memorable. 

4. Prepare for Any Technical Issues

Technical issues like glitches, lags, and disconnections are common in a livestream concert because let’s be honest, technology isn’t perfect. Having a proven and tested connection like Dish Internet would help, but it cannot guarantee a smooth streaming experience, especially if the issue is from the livestreamer’s side. It's essential to be flexible and patient in these situations, and not let them ruin your enjoyment of the event. Remember that everyone involved is doing their best to deliver a great experience, and sometimes things are just beyond their control.

5. Don’t be Afraid to Dress for the Occasion

Even though you’re not in a big stadium or a concert hall downtown, you should still dress like you’re about to attend the best concert of your life. Wear your favorite merch or even dress up in a fun and stylish outfit that makes you feel like you're part of the event. You can even take photos and share them with your friends online. 

6. Prepare the Snacks

You can’t skip this last part! Before the start of the livestream, you should prepare light snacks and drinks to accompany you throughout the concert. Finger foods like chips, pretzels, and popcorn are great options, as well as bite-sized sweets like candies or chocolate. This will make sure that you don’t have to get up and leave the screen to get some food or drinks when you suddenly feel hungry. 

The Bottom Line

Attending a livestream concert is one way to show support and appreciation to your favorite music artists. While nothing beats the real thing (a.k.a. going to the concert venue and really seeing the artist live), live streaming has really helped a lot of music artists all over the world in sharing their talent. Enjoy your livestream concert!
