According to a new study conducted by ValuePenguin.com, which looked at 15 different data points grouped into three categories in order to determine the best U.S. cities for music fans, Duluth ranked 25th out of 200 cities studied.
Duluth ranked ahead of the major cities of NYC, Chicago, LA and even New Orleans. The 3 categories in which the 15 data points are divided were "The Band," "Crowd" and "The Intangibles," with Duluth placing 2nd in “The Crowd” category.
In the last 20 years Duluth has developed a music scene light years ahead of what it was in the late 90’s. The addition of the Bayfront Festival Parkand the completely organic growth of Duluth Homegrown Music Festival the educational programs of UMD School of Fine Arts, CSS, the Lake Superior Youth Chorus, Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra programs and many more, all have made Duluth a destination for music lovers.
