You don’t need to be an event organizer to understand that staging setup and lighting can make a concert more enjoyable.

Your audience would no longer have just their ears pleased, but also their eyes. An immersive show has bigger chances of leaving a positive mark on your audience.

Unfortunately, stage lighting and stage setup are complex aspects not many can pull off. The good news is, in the following lines, you will learn more about how to get it right.

Stage Lighting Should Complete the Band’s Performance

Stage lighting certainly isn’t a ‘one-size-fits-all’ set-up and should be tailored to the band’s genre.

What’s true is that lighting adds a nice touch to the overall quality of the performance and can turn any band into proper rock stars if done right.

Stage lighting for live music performances differs from show to show. For a singer/songwriter, a single spot can be all that is needed to create a high impact performance.

However, an energetic band is more likely to require a bold color wash that conveys their personality.

Proper Staging Setup for Different Types of Events

Again, a “one-size-fits-all” approach isn’t a solution. Everything should be tailored according to the size of the event.

If your audience is not that big and the artists performing are mostly solo musicians, you will not need such a big stage. In fact, a big stage would be a negative aspect as it would look empty.

On the other hand, if you are organizing a big event with multiple bands of different shapes and sizes, the staging setup is vital.

Together with the lighting, everything from the stage size to the decor creates an immersive experience for the audience. These elements will draw the attention and keep it there until the concert ends – which is exactly what you should strive for.

Power Requirements Matter

As you can imagine, all the technical equipment installed on the stage consumes electricity. You’d be amazed how much a big stage requires.

Naturally, the bigger the stage, the bigger the power requirements. Some event organizers never take this into account when they book a location.

It’s not just the lights, audio consumes a lot of electricity as well.

Back to the Music

The right staging setup, together with excellent audio and lightings setup, improve the quality of a concert. However, if the band on stage does not do their singing properly, it would be for nothing.

You will want talented musicians who can put up a great show and entertain your audience. Naturally, the genre should be determined according to your event’s theme and the age of your audience.

Doing research for such bands or musicians could prove to be a time-consuming process. Your best choice would be to go with a booking agency which can take off of your shoulders this responsibility, so you can invest that time in something more important.
