Music and tourism: On the road again

Book


Abstract


  • Music and Tourism is the first book to comprehensively examine the links between travel and music. It combines contemporary and historical analysis of the econom ic and social impact of music tourism, with discussions of the cultural politics of authenticity and identity. Music tourism evokes nostalgia and meaning, and celebrates both heritage and hedonism. It is a product of commercialisation that can create community, but that also often demands artistic compromise. Diverse case studies, from the USA and UK to Australia, Jamaica and Vanuatu, illustrate the global extent of music tourism, its contradictions and pleasures.
