Have You Found What You're Looking For? On the Experience of Music Tourism

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Music tourism is on the rise, both in numbers of tourists and in academic interest. Surprisingly enough, not much empirical research has been done to explore this phenomenon. Results are presented from fieldwork and 15 in-depth interviews concerning Abba’s Stockholm, U2’s Dublin and Wagner’s Bayreuth, crossing the distinction between popular and classical music for the first time in music tourism research. This paper contributes to existing music tourism studies by using insights from music sociology to show how music matters in the touristic experience of place. As music is a building material of identity, three processes of identity-work are analyzed: music tourism as an experience that marks and enriches personal identity; music tourism as a bodily practice of immersing into musicscapes; and music tourism as a way to establish connections between personal and cultural identities, inciting music-inspired topophilia and nostalgic remembering in which music becomes a pars pro toto.
