    Guide: Running Sound Check Before a Concert

    Running sound check before a concert is one of the most important pre-performance rituals for a band and concert promoter. For one, it allows the band to warm up and learn about the stage and venue before a show. In addition, it helps the sound crew learn about the band's audio needs and find the right equipment for the show. Sound check is even more important if you're running a concert with multiple bands, as each band has their own audio needs and equipment to set up. Stage hands will also need to learn the band lineup and how to change one band's equipment for another's in a seamless, efficient manner. Overall, the sound check serves as a rehearsal for the big event.
