Social Media Hugely Impact Sales Of EDM Events


At the time, when we are getting more social and more through the internet mediums, social media is becoming more influential, especially for raising ticket sales of EDM events. A recent research infographic published by Ticketfly surprisingly shows that social media drives six times more ticket sales than any other event, boosted by the significant contribution of Facebook & Twitter. Probably, this is the best time to take social media marketing seriously, eh?

The History of EDM Aka Electronic Music


Oh! How we hated to read those black alphabets printed in the history books in school! However, what if they were presented in a nice little infographic? We would probably like them a bit more. Scayl chose exactly that path in order to present the glorious history of EDM, and pretty successfully captured the attention of the millions of EDM fans.

Unlike some other genre, this lifestyle is not for the loners though, as an average EDM fan joins an event with a group of 5 persons.

The Sub-Genres of EDM


EDM is a huge acronym that refers to a hell lot of different dance music. The list of genres is huge in itself, while each one of them also has a vast list of sub-genres. Sometimes, those genres / sub genres are very close to each other, sometimes they overlap, making it very difficult for the listeners to differentiate. To solve this problem, The McGill Tribune has created a brilliant list that clearly categorizes each of the sub genres under a specific genre of EDM. Just remember that the list is made based on the author’s interpretation.

Are You A Typical EDM Fan? Nielsen’s Profile Helps You Find Out!

Forty five percent of the attendees are female, while an average EDM fan is likely to be aged at 18-24 who has an annual household income ranging from $25, 000 to $ 50,000. Doesn’t feel that mush insulting anymore, does it?
