Exclusive Premium Statistic

Concert and festival attendance in the United Kingdom (UK) 2012-2016 This statistic displays information on the attendance at music concerts and festivals in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2012 to 2016. The data refers to both local attendants and music tourists from abroad. Over the period of consideration, attendance at UK live music events increased. The number of festival visitors grew by over one million in the three years between 2012 and 2016, from 2.79 million to 3.9 million attendants. The UK hosts a number of music festivals every year with Glastonbury Festival, held annually in the month of June in Somerset, England, being the best known. Looking at a breakdown of festival-goers in the UK by age, this type of event, often involving outdoor camping and going without a shower or flushable toilet for days on end, tends to attract a younger demographic with close to 60 percent of attendants aged 30 years or younger. Attendance at concerts in the UK also showed a strong upward trend between 2012 and 2015, with the annual concert audience size growing from 13.1 million to 24 million individuals. As of May 2016, music consumers in the UK stated to spend 15 percent of their total music spending on concerts or gigs.
