Determinants of demand and participation in cultural events

The research on the determinants of demand and participation in cultural events is still rather sparse and fragmented today. Whereas there is already an established empirical evidence with respect to the standard determinants such as admission price, education and income, more research is required to explore the impact of other important factors affecting visits at cultural events. This applies, among others, to socio-economic and socio-demographic characteristics of the visitors, both subjective (perceived) and objective quality of the cultural event, habit and rational addiction, and time-allocation decisions of individuals.
