Music is an art form that combines the beauty of sound and silence. It comprises pitch, dynamics, timbre and texture. According to social and cultural context music is divided into many genres and its sub genres. Popular forms of music started with a lot of folk, jazz and blues. It later evolved to other genres such as the hugely popular rock n roll music and pop music. As the years went on and technology advanced, newer and more exciting genres of music were born. As of today, there are a plethora of genres to choose from. Everything from Jazz to blues, Rock n roll to pop music, RnB to reggae, metal to nu metal, dubstep to electronic dance music, alternative to acid rock and a whole other bunch. Music is now a universal language. Everybody understands the language of music.
In the current era with music album sales going down due to piracy, most artists thrive on live shows and concerts.
Concerts and live shows are another experience. There is a brilliance about live shows and concerts that almost nothing else in the world can beat. The crowds jumping and enjoying every bit of the concert is another thrill altogether. Festivals and concerts have always been a huge thing. Woodstock 69 was a major rock n roll festival that started the concert madness. In today's world there are concerts, live shows and multiple day music festivals. Festivals such as Oktoberfest lasts almost two weeks. Most of these music festivals include artists from multiple genres. Metal bands, electronic dance music artists, techno bands, nu metal bands, name it, you have it. Music festivals are a great way for people, who enjoy multiple genres of music, to rock their socks off. The people not only come to enjoy their favorite live acts, but also because of their love for music and the overall mad experience of a music festival.
