Music is the number one passion for young people, study finds

2,000+ interviews have made for some very encouraging findings...

According to a new study drawing from 2,023 interviews, over one-half of the UK's youth consider music to be their main passion.

Carried out by London-based brand agency Amplify, the extensive study - which focused on 18-30 year olds from a diverse range of backgrounds - found that 51% of women and 49% of men deemed music to be their biggest obsession. 

Exploring how "the current hostile political and economic climate has changed the way [young people] view their lives", Young Blood 2: The Formula is Fucked also found that six out of ten young Londoners claim to care about music more than anything else.
