Music is an important aspect of the cultural life of Tasmanians. An estimated 25.2% of the Tasmanian population aged 18 years and over (87,100 people) attended a popular music concert, and 9.0% (31,200 people) attended a classical music concert at least once in the 12 months before interview in 2002.
