HOW TO: Meet Your Favorite Bands & Singers (Part 2)

Fake it ‘till you make it. Meeting your favorite band/singer can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. When you meet them, breathe. They’re just people. (That mean a lot to you!) Fake being outgoing if you’re a little shy—smile, ask them questions, (ex: How do you like my city? What did you do today? Etc.) and most importantly: be assertive (but not rude). If you want a selfie, ask for one. If you want a hug, ask for one. Thank them for taking time to meet you, and be happy—because you just met your favorite artist!

When taking a picture with your fave: Although this can be nerve-racking, try to stay calm. Smile, and make sure you take a minute to put your arm around your fave for the picture. Meet & greet pictures where the artist and fan are just standing next to each other are awkward, so you want to avoid that. Not sure what kind of meet and greet picture you want? A normal one of you smiling with the band is always great, but if you’re looking to get creative with your picture, check out the two pictures below for ideas!

Raleigh went for a fun, silly picture when she met American Authors. If you’re brave enough to ask for a picture like this, it is definitely one you will treasure forever!

If things don’t work out the way you wanted when trying to meet your favorite band or singer:

Don’t give up! Whether you didn’t meet the band, or you did, but you were too star-struck to tell them how much you love them, it’s okay. Stay positive and think about the fact that you actually met them. When I met Ed Sheeran, I barely squeaked out a thank you. I was in shock, haha. Afterwards, I was a bit disappointed I hadn’t said more to him, but I remembered how lucky I was to even meet him, and I felt better. There is always a possibility you will meet the artist again, or if you haven’t met them yet, and you’re determined to, you will. Staying positive is key!

  1. Years later, and I’m just now reading your blogpost, haha. It’s so helpful! I was able to meet one of my favourite bands when they were in my city. & I actually met them twice, because they remembered me the first time. Lucky for me, their team checks their Instagram DM’s. Their tour manager said that every time they’re in my city, I would be guaranteed meet and greet. Seriously the best
