My first ever concert!! Waaahhhhh

It feels odd that my first concert was 5 years ago, but it also feels like it happened like last week.

If you don’t know Jake Miller, I recommend checking him out. Earlier in 2015 he also had a concert, but I couldn’t

attend. I was able to meet him before his show, which was fortunate. And I can say that he is one of the kindest artists I have ever met. I’m so glad my first experience was with him.

For this show, I bought a regular ticket. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a VIP

ticket. I think I bought my ticket for around 40 euros.
The show was at Paradiso Noord located in Amsterdam.

I arrived at the venue around 11:00 AM. Since the concert was on a Sunday, and I had to travel by public transport, I wasn’t as early as I wanted to.
Many of my (internet) friends were also queuing around the same time. We kept each other company, and we had a good time.
Because we had to wait for a long time, we also went into the city to get food and sightseeing. We came at an appropriate time and stood at our spot. We were working with a number system, and everything went smoothly.

First off, people with VIP tickets were allowed to enter first. With the VIP ticket, you’ll meet the artist Jake Miller, take a picture with him and have the first entry of the music room.
Later on, people with regular tickets entered inside, and I was one of the first people to enter second into the room. If I recall, I was standing on the 2nd or 3rd row, on the right side of the stage.
Thankfully I had a good sight of the whole show!

The band/boy group Over Atlantic was the opener for the night. Very talented young guys. (Unfortunately, they decided to part ways & work on other stuff separately)
After this act, it was time for the show!
If I’m being honest all I can remember is that the whole show was such a vibe. Somewhere during his set, a new friend of mine and I were asking Jake to start rapping Beast Mode, and HE DID! The overall show was just AMAZING!!

At the end of the show, there was a merch stand right across from the music room. With various items, you can purchase.
I knew there was a possibility to meet Jake Miller at the end of the concert, but I didn’t want to come home late. At that moment, I lived 1,5 hours away from Amsterdam, so I had to go right away.

The staff of the venue were pleasant and respectful. My overall experience was beyond my expectations!

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed it 🙂 I’m curious what and how YOUR first concert was. Let me know your experience, I would love to read all about it!

Much love
