Summary

This book explores the growing phenomenon of music tourism – the phenomenon of people visiting places because of a connection with music. Asking how an abstract art form such as music can lead to tourism and how the popularity of music tourism in contemporary culture might be explained, it presents a comparative study of musical tourism in various locations across Europe, in relation to a range of musical genres. Based on empirical case studies, Contemporary Music Tourism lays the foundation for a general theoretical grounding of music tourism as a research field and as such, will appeal to scholars of geography, sociology, tourism, cultural studies and music.
