If you're in a relationship, then you know that spending time with your significant other keeps the romance alive and strengthens the connection between the two of you. However, the cost of a date night can leave both of you with huge dents in your wallets as a study found that couples in the UK spend an average of £127 between them per date. The cost covers transport, meals, clothes, and even the things that people need to get ready for the date such as clothing, hair, and makeup. Expenses can add up even more if both of you love music as seeing live acts can cost a lot. The good news is that you can spend a romantic evening with your loved one without breaking the bank. Try these music date night ideas to enjoy great tunes while spending quality time with your significant other.
Scour the events calendar of your local paper to find free events such as block parties and festivals. Not only will you be able to hear great music, but you'll also get the experience of a well-managed concert or music event without paying a fortune for tickets. You don't even have to go to a restaurant before checking out these events. Food vendors and food trucks usually frequent free music festivals so you and your honey can sample the different offerings and pay a lower price than the cost of a restaurant meal.
Music dating is better when you don't have to find tickets to see a quality act. Find a coffeehouse that plays live music to have a great night with your special someone. Even if you have to pay for coffee (and maybe a pastry or two), it's still less expensive than going to a concert to support your favourite artist.
If you're an extroverted couple and love belting out rock songs, then try singing karaoke songs at a karaoke bar. If both of you are shy and you happen to have a karaoke machine at home, you can stay in and prepare some snacks before doing a duet of "Born To Run" or "Livin' On A Prayer." When done right, karaoke can be romantic, sentimental, or hilarious, so prepare to grab the mic and give it your all while rock music dating.
If you're looking for something fun to do with your significant other, consider any of these affordable music date night ideas. You're guaranteed to have a fun and romantic time with that special someone in your life.
