US States With The Worst Concert Crowds Revealed In New Study

US States With The Worst Concert Crowds Revealed In New Study | Society Of Rock Videos

The unruly behavior of concert crowds can often lead to disappointment and frustration. No Deposit Fan has conducted a study revealing the U.S. states with the most unpleasant concert audiences, shedding light on the specific actions during shows contributing to their obnoxiousness.

In early April, No Deposit Fan conducted a survey involving 1,003 individuals from across all 50 U.S. states. The participants in the survey were required to attend at least one concert since the start of 2023. The survey aimed to gather insights about concert attendance patterns and demographics.

Among the respondents, the majority belonged to the Millennial generation, comprising 47 percent of the participants. In contrast, Baby Boomers accounted for only 6 percent of the survey sample.

The gender distribution indicated that slightly more than half of the participants were male, making up the majority at 52 percent, while females constituted 46 percent of the respondents. The remaining 2 percent identified themselves as non-binary or preferred other gender identities.

It is important to note that the survey did not differentiate concerts by genre, meaning that the collected data represents all types of concerts in general.

Rise in Disruptive Concert Behavior Found in Survey

The findings indicated that 38 percent of survey participants observed an increase in impolite or disruptive conduct during concerts this year, while 33 percent stated that they had witnessed even more problematic behavior at concerts compared to the period before the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020.

Kentucky and Maine were identified as the states where individuals noticed the most significant shifts in concert behavior, as 67 percent of respondents in those locations claimed that crowds had become considerably worse.

Additionally, more than half of the respondents from North Carolina, Nevada, Mississippi, Virginia, Nebraska, Vermont, Missouri, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, and Maryland also reported a rise in disruptive audiences this year.

Conversely, individuals from Alaska, Louisiana, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Wyoming did not observe any changes in concert crowds at all.

The top eight behaviors that people find annoying at concerts include the overuse of smartphones, speaking loudly, not respecting personal space, littering, pushing and jostling, excessive drinking or drug use, live streaming the event without permission, and disregarding the rules set by the venue.

Mindful Concert-Goer’s Guide

Attending concerts requires attendees to be mindful and considerate of others, ensuring an enjoyable and respectful environment. This involves respecting personal space, using appropriate volume levels when speaking, and being mindful of body language to avoid obstructing others’ views.

Dispose of trash properly to keep the venue clean and avoid recording the entire performance, as it can obstruct others’ views and disrupt their experience. It’s important to follow venue rules and guidelines, and during quieter moments, show consideration by refraining from excessive talking or shouting.

By practicing mindfulness and consideration, individuals can contribute to a positive and welcoming concert atmosphere for everyone involved.
