  • Four in five British adults who have attended a live ticketed event in the last 12 months say they understand why artists might not like people videoing and photographing at the event (81%), and seven in ten (70%) agree that it is irritating when people constantly photograph or film during a live performance
  • More than two thirds of respondents (69%) say that more than minimal action should be taken to manage people’s phone usage during live events
