For the purposes of this Report, Mintel has used the following definitions:
The concerts and festivals examined in this Report include live musical performances at concert venues in the UK for which customers pay an entrance price.

What you need to know
The UK music concert and festivals market continues to grow in value fuelled by more events, higher ticket prices and a rise in the number of music tourists from overseas. In 2018 it is estimated to be worth £2,459 million. However, it appears that some fans are beginning to cut back on the number of music events they attend. This will become more noticeable if ticket prices continue to rise.
As the amount of festivals increases so does the experience consumers expect from them. A good line-up may not be enough to draw in audiences as demand for additional activities grows. The rise in focus on health and fitness means many events are introducing elements of wellness and adventure.
The potential benefits of technology remain under-utilised so more can be done with RFID wristbands. As environmental concerns heighten, music events need to be doing more to reduce waste, recycle and use eco-friendly products.

The UK music concert and festivals market continues to grow in value, fuelled by more events, higher ticket prices and a rise in the number of music tourists from overseas. The industry can’t rely on international visitors to keep the market afloat. If music fans begin to cut-back or Brexit negotiations negatively impact music tourism, then it may begin to struggle, especially in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
