Independent music is getting more and more popular, not only in the United Kingdom but worldwide. People of all age groups are interested in independent music news about their favourite bands. They are not only interested in their music but also in their private lives. Therefore, they try to get all the information about them they can possibly get. In addition, especially throughout the summer, Independent music festivals of different sizes can be found in almost every big city. These are especially popular amongst younger adults. The exact dates can be found in general independent music news or on the website of your favourite musicians. If you are on a tight budget, you might look for cheaper alternatives than these often very pricey festivals. Independent musicians often play gigs in smaller bars that are far less expensive or even completely free. Or just have a stroll around alternative districts of your city – with a little bit of luck you can listen to great street musicians.
