Tuning into European nightlife

The Electronic Music Scene Survey ("EMSS"), part of the ALAMA-Nightlife project, is a survey for people who attend dance/ electronic music events across five European countries: UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Italy.

The survey asks about patterns of going out and going to festivals, and about the use of legal and illegal drugs. It aims not only to understand more about nightlife and drug use across the five participating countries, but also to gain an insight into the evolution and changes in nightlife and drug use over time and factors driving it. Indeed, what is unique in this nightlife study is that the 10,000 respondents who fill in the online questionnaire will be recruited again for the follow-up one year later. By identifying possible trajectories in nightlife attendance and alcohol and other drug use, we will be filling an important gap in our current scientific knowledge. This is fundamental in order to inform evidence-based policy and healthcare decisions, and ultimately to make it safer for people who use alcohol and/or other drugs when going out.

The first survey is live now, and will be open until 31st August 2017.
