New Research From BandsInTown Profiles Today’s Social Concertgoer

Facebook concert discovery application Bandsintown recently commissioned the research firm Insight Strategy Group to study the behavior of concertgoers nationwide and identify trends in how they kept informed of live music events. The online survey polled around 1,800 music “enthusiasts” (defined as people who have paid to see live music in the past year) ages 16-59 that are active Internet and Facebook users, and the research aimed to explore musical engagements that uncover genre preferences, music-related behaviors and purchasing habits.
