This collection explores the processes and experiences of attending live music events from the initial decision to attend through to audience responses and memories of a performance after it has happened. The book brings together international researchers who consider the experience of being an audience member from a range of theoretical and empirical perspectives and the question of what makes an audience, arguing convincingly for the practical and academic value of that question.
