Electronic music is now world’s third most popular genre


A recent study in the IMS Business Report found electronic music to be the third most popular music genre, with an estimated 1.5 billion listeners, as Mixmag reports.

A third of the 19,000 people asked said they typically listen to electronic, dance and house music, ranking it ahead of hip hop, rap and r’n’b.

Pop and rock music were the most listened to genres in the survey, which was sent to 16 to 64-year-olds in 18 different countries.
