Music Venues

This article focuses the thematic field of so-called music venues. Strictly speaking music venues do exist in different variations – for instance in the form of amongst others concert halls, open air concerts and stadiums. If you want to find out more about these three types of music venues, just take some time and read through the following paragraphs which will comprehensively inform you about the main characteristics of concert halls, open air concerts as well as stadiums.

A concert hall represents a very important, mostly cultural and/or ancient, building that serves for the purpose of music performances and concerts in general. In this context it has to be mentioned that a concert hall is actually used for classic instrumental music performances. Large cities such as for instance Vienna, Berlin, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Brussels, Prague, Sofia, Copenhagen, Paris, Munich and many others more do have public as well as private concert halls. Strictly speaking concert halls are characterized to be very elegant and noble. In other words: Most of them are provided with precious designer sofas, beautiful seat covers (for instance velvet seat covers in different colors) and an outstanding stage design including gorgeous curtains and impressive design elements.

As opposed to concert halls stadiums are not characterized to be exclusive or rather noble. Strictly speaking stadiums do provide standing rooms; elegant concert halls, however, of course not. In this context it has to be said that concert halls and stadiums do represent two different types of music venues. Whereas concert halls do only host classical and instrumental music performances, stadiums offer music performances in genres such as amongst others rock, dance, pop, country, heavy metal, jazz, etc.

Open air concerts do mostly feature music genres such as pop, folk, jazz and rock. Their main characteristics consist in the fact that open air concerts are concerts that are taking place in the open air – in other words: outside a stadium or a hall. Most open air concerts do offer standing rooms as well as a so-called seating area. Furthermore it can be said that this type of music venue takes much time, particularly when it comes to aspects such as planning and organization. One of the main points is that the stage must be visible from the entire audience area (standing room and seating area).
