Given all the hoopla about the Season, a study on how many people it actually caters to would be interesting. Assuming that the top 20 Sabhas account for 80 per cent of the crowd, each has a seating capacity of 1,000 on an average, and all of them are catering to packed houses, the number would be around 20,000. A miniscule figure indeed.

One response to “December Music Season 2011 – Fact 30”
I am equally interested in the economics of it. Assuming most of these concerts are not ticketed, who funds the season? The caterers? The advertisers? Too many people need to make money from this. How does this work?
