Question Liverpool trails in 18th place in survey of UKs most musical cities

Liverpool trails in 18th place in survey of UK’s most musical cities

LIVERPOOL trailed in 18th place in a new study of the country’s most musical cities.

The birthplace of The Beatles and a host of other chart-toppers trailed in behind the likes of Swindon, Brighton and Leicester in the survey by the Performing Rights Society.

Bristol topped the list, with Cardiff second and Wakefield third.

The PRS used its 65,000-strong database to locate the birthplaces of its membership.

The figures were then weighted by population to reveal what it claimed are the country’s most musical hotspots.

While London has the greatest number of musicians living in it, it came in at number 26.

PRS chairman Ellis Rich said: “Bristol has been a longstanding contributor to the British music scene, constantly injecting its unique pizzazz of trip-hop and rock bands.”

The survey is not really a logical indication of which city is the most musical if you look at the criteria that it used.
The birthplace of PRS members?
