Smartphone in hand at a concert, red light from stage

Are you planning on going to any concerts this year in Charlotte? We are so excited about the concert season. I mean, of course, we are a radio station! This year so many of our favorite artists will be coming through the Queen City and making pit stops at some of our favorite venues. But, sometimes things happen and people don’t always remember the venue rules. We know, bag policies, food policies, times, etc. can really be a lot to remember and deal with.

So, I decided to help everyone out ahead of this concert season. Here is a list of some of the top venues in Charlotte and all of the things you need to know before going to a concert in their space. It’s so fun to see some of your favorite artists live in concert performing your favorite songs. But, make sure you are aware of all of the rules beforehand. Don’t be that person to forget something or bring something that you don’t need. It would suck to have to turn around once you get to that door. Check out all the top venues below and be mindful of some of their basic rules and N2Ks.
