- In 2024, 44% of  fans are “willing to fly short-haul to see their favorite artists," while 18% "would go the extra mile with long-haul flights."

- 60% of  travelers are open to gig tripping abroad in 2024.  

- Meanwhile, 34% of fans “plan to attend local music events in 2024” (50% among 25-to-34-year-olds)
