Research Shows Concert Goers Experience Many Benefits

The summer concert season is knocking on the door, and now more than ever it makes sense to get away from that Spotify playlist or YouTube channel. Seeing a favorite band, or artist is a life-changing and exhilarating experience. It’s one thing to be sitting at home listening or watching videos, but being in the crowd, packed out in a stadium, or detached from the real world on a dance floor takes things to another level. However, going to a live music event isn’t all about letting your hair down and having fun, although that’s obviously a considerable part of it. It can benefit you as a person, as well as your overall well-being. Some key benefits include:

  • Dancing & Swaying to the Music: Going to a live music concert is great exercise. In fact, high-energy shows will reportedly have dancers losing around 400 calories an hour!
  • Stress Reduction: A study of 117 Imperial College of London applicants found they witnessed a significant decrease in cortisol, including reduced heart rate, lower blood pressure, and calmer breathing, especially when listening to wind instruments.
  • Feeling Of Togetherness: Every single person is there for the same reason, and when the crowd erupts for the artist or a favorite song, it’s a sense of community you won’t get anywhere else.
