Men's Sunscreen / 5.9.19

Outdoor Concert Lineups are Red Hot!

Summertime is almost here, which means more time outdoors. While we’ve spent plenty of time talking (in previous posts) about the activities and events that draw people out into the sun this time of year, we haven’t mentioned outdoor concerts.

You could say that the summer months are also the peak of live music season. Whether it be amphitheaters, stadiums, or even local festivals and events, the outdoor concert lineup is red hot this time of year.

While these concerts always make for a great party, many of them begin during the daytime, which means those hours of fun are also hours in the sun. In case you haven’t heard by now, that’s not necessarily a good thing for your skin.

More than likely, your list of things to bring to the show includes your phone. You gotta’ take pics and get them onto social media, right? After all, how will the rest of the world function without real-time updates of your every movement?!?!

It also probably includes beer or alcohol of some kind.

It definitely includes money. How else are you going to pay for the $12 beers — if you’re lucky — after you run out of the ones you brought from home?

Your list probably includes other items that it’s probably better off if we omit from this list.

The point is, your list probably does not include men’s sunscreen. We get it…you’re there to unwind, have fun and party! You don’t want to be bothered with sensible behavior like putting on men’s sunscreen. In fact, you’ll probably end up taking your shirt off (guys) at some point to show off a little and to absorb as much of that sun as possible, right?

So we’re painting with a broad brush here, but you get the point. And, more importantly, you know this happens.

Anyway, we’re not trying to rain on your parade — or concert — but don’t forget that a nasty sunburn is a pretty solid buzz kill!

Besides, we’ve heard getting somebody else to put men’s sunscreen on you isn’t the worst thing in the world.

So, bottom line, be safe. Be smart. When you’re getting ready for your next summer show, be sure to grab your Jacket!

Now that we got the important stuff out of the way, let’s have some fun. True music lovers know it’s tough to beat this time of year…especially for outdoor concerts (remember: men’s sunscreen).

Austin, Texas kicked off the festivities with its annual SXSW — or South by Southwest Festival — from March 8 to March 17. The music world seems to convene for this week-plug-long gathering in the heart of the Lone Star State. Performers, producers, publishers and press — and anything and everybody else you can think of in the entertainment industry, even if it doesn’t start with the letter “p” — show up to watch and hear artists spanning all genres light it up.

Shows take place in both indoor and outdoor venues throughout Texas’ capital city. Here’s a little advice, this show is in March when it’s not too hot yet, so you might actually need your jacket and your JACKET — stay warm, stay not red.

Things definitely start heating up in New Orleans this time of year, especially with the always anticipated and never disappointing Jazz & Heritage Festival. Held April 26 to May 5 this year, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival hosted more than a hundred acts, including notables such as Dave Matthews Band, Chris Stapleton, Katy Perry, Jimmy Buffett, Ziggy Marley, Van Morrison, Gladys Knight…the list goes on and on.

The lineup is always incredible and the shows are outdoors. So, you’ll definitely want some non-greasy (men’s sunscreen) in the Big Easy!

Did you know? Jacket men’s sunscreen features a non-greasy formula.

What a coincidence!

Since 1982, South Floridians have been flocking to the West Palm Beach waterfront during the first week of May for live music. Attracting top acts from today and yesterday, SunFest is a staple for Sunshine State music-lovers.

And if you don’t think the risk of a severe sunburn if you’re not using men’s sunscreen is real at an event called SunFest…

SunFest was held May 2 to May 5 this year and drew headliners such as Keith Urban, One Republic, Flogging Molly, Earth Wind & Fire and Ludacris. The event takes place on three stages over four days and has become the state of Florida’s largest music festival. And, hey, that’s saying something considering the peninsula has nearly 1,500 miles of coastline!

When it comes to outdoor concert events in Florida, however, SunFest is facing some serious competition from the Tortuga Music Festival, held on the beach in Fort Lauderdale. It has only been around since 2013, but the three-day, multi-stage oceanfront party has grown rapidly in popularity in part because of its affiliation with the Rock the Ocean Foundation, a nonprofit conservation organization that raises awareness and funding for environmental issues that affect the ocean and its wildlife; but more so because of its incredible lineup of artists.

This year’s festival, was held April 12 to April 14, and featured shows by Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Joan Jett, Thomas Rhett, Sheryl Crow and Flo Rida. It skews a bit country, but it’s a lot of fun…and a lot of sun and men’s sunscreen!
