The latest Eventbrite report reveals 77% of Aussie concert goers support pill testing

Eventbrite have published the results of their 2019 Australian Music Fans Report, based on responses from 1,132 music event goers who attended at least one live music event (ticketed by Eventbrite) between 1 January 2018 to 31 March 2019.

The results give event music organisers solid statistics on how to best engage Aussie audiences and reveals what matters most to concert-goers today, from Baby Boomers through to Generations X, Y and Z.


2019 Australian Music Fans Report by Eventbrite reveals that 77% of Australian concert-goers support pill testing at music events.

For example, Baby Boomers are actually the most committed music fans, attending the most events of anyone surveyed, meanwhile, Gen Z looks for value for money and are the biggest users of social media throughout their experience.

And while these results provide information to those in charge of creating live events, the report could also help inform our laws around pill testing (are you listening, Gladys?)

Eventbrite have published that 77% of respondents support pill testing at music events, and 63% ranked security as being either ‘important’ or ‘very important’ to their event experience.

These results align with the report published by the Guardian earlier this year, where 63% of voters supported pill testing, and the two-year running success of Canberra’s Groovin The Moo with this service.

So even if we can’t agree on use of mobile phones at gigs, it seems we can agree on pill testing.
