SSE Hydro survey reveals the most romantic music genre

Shakespeare once wrote that ‘if music be the food of love, play on’ and now we know the specific genre most likely to spark a relationship.

The SSE Hyrdo has found that love is in the air at rock gigs across the UK. Fans of the genre were found to be the most likely to meet a future partner at a gig according to a survey carried out by the venue.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the survey revealed that 1 in 6 UK adults have met a partner at a live music gig and that the people of Sheffield were the most likely to begin a relationship to classical music.

The venue surveyed 2,003 UK adults and found that rock was the most popular genre in Scottish cities whereas cities like Bristol and Southampton preferred Indie/Alternative.

The survey found that people in Glasgow were 1.5 times more likely to find love at a gig than people in Edinburgh, but did not reveal whether love was in the Ayr.

Check out the full results below.
