Going to see live music makes you happier

That sixth cocktail maybe not so much….

Going to concerts regularly leads to a happier life, reports Victoria’s Deakin University. The university surveyed 1000 Australians and discovered a correlation between concert-going and overall satisfaction of daily-life.

The Australian university noted that individuals who attend any sort of communal musical experience, whether that be a festival on the scale of Tomorrowland or simply a night outdoors listening to acoustic renditions, regularly reported higher levels of satisfaction with their lives.

This is in contrast to listening to music alone, which the report notes does not cause the same effect on “social well-being”.  

The experience on the DJs in the live music community hasn’t always been as positive. From Sasha to Avicii, often times the curators of the communal experiences need some time away from the road.
