So it’s no surprise attending a concert or festival is the number one activity people want to resume when COVID-19 restrictions ease.
The study looked at people’s musical tastes and how they have evolved over the years.
Two-thirds of people said their musical taste has changed significantly over time.
There’s a new favourite in the pandemic era, as three in 10 named Lady Gaga’s One World: Together at Home concert as their top live-streamed performance during the lockdown.
One in five said Bruno Mars is their preferred music artist of 2021 thus far, followed closely by Justin Bieber and The Weeknd.
Fifty-nine percent have filled their lives with more music than ever in the past year, with half creating a special playlist for a friend or loved one.
When asked about the biggest influences on their musical tastes, people said friends, music TV channels, and their parents played the biggest roles.
