The results are in on which city hates electronic music the most. SeatGeek did some analysis of their ticketing data to see which city had the most (and least) passionate live music fans.
The study included ranking which city had the most users tracking the top 100 artists of each genre, but also which city had the highest number of artists tracked all together.
While Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, and Denver came in as the top three cities with most involved live music fans overall, Las Vegas, L.A., and Houston were not far behind.
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty though. Who loves and hates electronic music the most?
In my opinion, it should be no surprise that Louisville tied with Memphis for cities with the lowest preference for electronic music overall. You can see the full charts for favorites (and least favorites) within the genre.
Is it a coincidence that electronic loving cities have some of the highest populations in the U.S.? I’d like to think so, but that’s probably a study for another time. SeatGeek didn’t just release the data for electronic, but for country and popular music as well. You can see all the genres and data in full for yourself.
