25 Concert Poster Designs

Going to concerts is something that every music enthusiast would wish to experience at least once in their entire lifetime. But even if you aren’t that into music, the experience of going to an actual concert is very different than when you are simply listening to music on the radio. In concerts, audiences get to witness the enthusiasm as well as the pure talent of the performer. On the other hand, the performers will also be able to benefit from the cheers and support from their audiences, and this helps in motivating them to give their best performance. There is an actual interaction between the singer and the audience in concerts, and this alone is what makes a concert experience very magical.

When we talk about concerts, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that is performed by a band or an artist, there are also concerts that are being initiated by the church or any religious organizations. These concerts come in the form of contemporary worship music events and congregational worship services, though many conservative people would not want the two to be compared since for them, praise and worship music events are not of the same level as concerts. But the only thing similar between the two is that it brings together people to witness music being performed live for them.

For this design, it is intended for those concerts that are more on the mellow side and less on the wild audiences. That is the main difference with acoustic concerts, the music is softer and more calming. Think of an Ed Sheeran or a Jack Johnson concert, the performers use a regular guitar attached to an amplifier without the use of any distortion effects. The connection between the performer and the audience is made possible from the music alone and not from any excessive amount of energy from both parties. The awesome poster design above simply shows an image of an acoustic guitar with all the details regarding the concert listed down beside it.

What Are Posters?

By definition, posters are advertisement tools made up of any piece of paper—usually thicker and larger than regular-sized paper, and some may even have a slightly glossy surface on one side and a matte surface on the other—and is designed to be attached to any vertical surface such as walls or poles for the public to read. Some posters may hold a purely typographic design while some may also have illustrations or images and no text. But for most poster designs, they would contain both graphical and textual elements that work together to not only be informative but also attract attention from the general public.

Posters serve a lot of purposes which include being a replica of an actual famous artwork to provide people with the same image but in a much lesser cost than its original counterpart. Posters can also be used as tools for teaching in providing pupils—most especially children—with a visual aid to help them understand the topic easily. But the most common purpose of posters is for advertising or promoting anything ranging from events, to movies, and even to businesses or their products. The use of posters has since been proven effective, which is the reason why it is still being used by different industries and organizations up to this day.

When we hear the word grunge, we commonly associate it with the music that was made famous in Seattle by bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden, just to name a few. But grunge actually refers to something more than just 90’s music. Grunge is actually a theme or an effect applied to images and design, which involves a rugged and organic look. For the design above, the grunge texture effect applied on the poster appropriately fits the grunge-themed music that will be played during the concert.

Electronic Dance Music Concert Poster Design

Concert Poster Design

Electronic Dance Music, or EDM for short, is basically the same as DJ music wherein all the tracks being played during the event are the result of a disc jockey’s mixes. Commonly, no actual instruments are in use here, only a laptop, a drum machine, and a turntable, thus the name “electronic music.” In EDM events, it involves a lot of dancing and not so much on singing because the choice of music here are more on the danceable beats. Check out the modern concert poster above if you are in the process of organizing an electronic dance music event, and as you can see from the sample, the abstract illustration effectively compliments the design’s theme.

What Are the Advantages of Using Posters?

  • Posters independently speak for themselves and need not any further explanation from its creator. Simply attach it to a surface in a public place and it can help itself in reaching its desired number of audiences.
  • A single poster design can be reused multiple times for different events, just as long as the next event has a similar purpose to the previous one. Or another case of reusing posters is if one copy fails to attract audiences, it can be removed and re-attached at a different location.
  • Posters don’t require a lot of manpower and gathering the required number of audiences can be done even with just a few people. The important thing to consider is to make sure that you have enough copies of the posters to be able to cover a designated area.
  • Posters are versatile enough that they can be printed in different shapes and sizes. Smaller-sized posters for the convenience of being able to send them through mail, and bigger-sized posters for attracting more people in large locations.
  • Posters have been proven both cost-efficient and effective in serving its purpose. All that’s required from the advertiser or whoever is planning on using the poster is an easy-to-download poster layout, a person who is knowledgeable enough in the use of graphics editing tools, and a printing company.

What Are the Dos and Don’ts in the Designing of Posters?

  • DO limit the word count on a poster design to 1000 words or less. DON’T make it too wordy because it may cause the audience to lose interest in it.
  • DO take advantage of the design’s white space between images and text boxes to make the poster pleasing to look at as well as easier to read. DON’T cramp up the poster’s design with too many elements because not only will this end up looking unprofessional, but it will also look disturbing on the eyes.
  • DO use different fonts for the headings, subheadings, and the body. To be specific, use a non-serif font such as Helvetica or Arial for the headings and subheadings, and a serif font such as Garamond or Palatino for the body text.
  • DO add a thin gray border around images regardless of the color of the background to help in making the image stand out.
  • DON’T ever plagiarize other poster designs. Avoid the trouble and DO make your own unique poster design.
