Abstract [en]

In recent years, there have been major changes in society on many levels. Such changes are of course of great importance to many urban residents. The changes we are referring to in this paper, are how people listen to music. On the streets and walkways in e.g. Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, large hordes of young men and women nowadays travel on electric scooters and almost everyone wears headphones and listens to music. Also on commuter trains, subways and buses, most of the travelers also wear headphones and listen to music. Thus, music is constantly present in these people's lives. But at the same time, music clubs and other music establishments, are often finding it increasingly difficult to achieve profitability due to a declining audience interest. Also traditionally successful music arenas such as the opera houses have problems to attract audiences, despite extensive and often very costly marketing. However, the big arena concerts with international artists still attract large crowds. This means that listening to music has evolved into something that usually happens entirely individually or on occasions in very large contexts, like e.g. at arena concerts. In this paper we highlight some of the challenges that young music producers face, due to the changing society, as they develop their artistic activities. The Swedish music industry has for many years been internationally successful and we present some core explanations of the success and also reflect on how societal development may need changes for future urban music development.
