And of course for that you need to know how to get backstage passes. There is some things that you can do, to be backstage in these concerts.

With all the online tools we have these days is easy to catch their attention.
Things You Will Need

Most, if not every band these days has a website online where you can sign up to be a fan. Find your favorite artist fan club and become a fan. By staying on top of what's happening and commenting, sometimes even talking outside the site about what's going on, on their site makes you stand out from the other fans. If you can email them personally do it. Sometimes it can take time to get through the thousands of emails, but they will respond to you.
Step 2Staying on top of the most current contest and entering them is crucial. If you don't, it can cost you free concert tickets or backstage passes.
