How Instagram Affects Live Music and Concerts

Published: 24/10/2018  -  By Jason Palmer

Family, friends, schoolmates, officemates-- almost everyone has Instagram. The colorful camera logo is distinguishable anywhere with its 300 million users daily and posts all over the application garnering an estimate of 4.2 billion likes. It is basically incorporated into everyone’s daily lives as the platform gives users the liberty to post almost anything from arts, hobbies, tutorials, and even music.

Now have you ever wondered how an application affects live music and concerts? In this article, we shall find out how the popular app influences live performances in this age of technology.

Everyone wants to share something they have experienced or witnessed. It is important to almost all users to capture that “Instagram moment” where it aesthetically fits the user’s feed. Live shows and concerts now have stepped up with amazing visuals. Any performer aims to please their audience, always wanting to make their shows worthwhile-- the best that they can deliver.

A great show not only depends on the artist but also the artistry of the show itself. This includes the set-up of the stage, lights, pyrotechnics, and others. Many visual gimmicks are at play in putting out an “Instagram moment” such as humongous LED screens, oversized items, and lasers. Humongous LED screens project visuals help add more life to the show. Oversized items are also a trend in putting the attention onto the artist or performer and eliminating distractions within the show. Lasers have improved with today’s technological advancement which makes them safe and not inflict injury into the eyes of the audience.

In this age of technology, performers have taken into consideration how their audience will capture their show. Those people present in those concert venues are not the only spectators watching the show. People in the comforts of their homes are spectators through the Instagram app. This puts pressure on artists or performers to deliver a show that is aesthetically pleasing from any angle. However, no matter how much a show is designed, it also comes down to how that moment is taken. Bad pictures happen maybe because of awkward angles or the audience simply is seated in a place that makes it difficult to see the wider beauty of the show.

In its entirety, performers cannot always idealize a perfect show with the basis of its reception on Instagram posts. Despite the technological advancement, it does however have its downfalls. It puts unnecessary pressure on the performers of the show, the designers of the set, and other important people who put their backs into making a great show. Some artists are also concerned about hacking and Instagram Account Security issues. The ease at which some can access a Instagram password hacker worries many in the industry.

Instagram shows its effect on live shows and concerts as a platform to transcend the show outside concert grounds or venue walls and into the comforts of home. It pushes the performer to give it their all and deliver that “Instagram moment”. It also has its downside of inducing unnecessary pressure. Like everything, social media has its upsides and downsides. However, as long as you use it right, nothing could ever go wrong.
