Data Show That People Now More Than Ever Are Attending Music Festivals
According to a study done by Festicket, Europe’s festival travel platform, the rate of consumers attending festivals has skyrocketed in recent years. They were able to access this information by tapping into their one million subscriber database.
Festicket provided a detailed infographic, detailing all of the trends of the festival circuit. For instance, international travel increased 48% this year. They also found that 46% of attendees at EDM festivals are between the ages 18-24, while 48% of attendees at indie/alternative festivals are 25-34.
Festicket’s CEO, Zack Sabban, also openly talked about their findings and the ever-growing economic market of music festivals:
“After five years of working with festivals worldwide, and gathering data insights from the front-line, it’s amazing to see how the market keeps growing and changing over time. More people are going to festivals than ever before, and they’re travelling further to find the experience they’re looking for. At the same time, festivals themselves are diversifying and expanding, creating more choice for fans.”
