A new survey has revealed that, in 2017, the top 5 music festivals in the United States had an average attendance of more than 3.5 million attendees, according to Billboard.

The average attendance was an all-time high at Coachella and Coachello.

Despite the increase in attendance, festival organizers have had a tough time keeping up with demand, according the survey.

The survey found that in 2017 there were 1,638 music festivals across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

It also found that the attendance was down 4% year over year, but that the number of people attending the festivals had remained stable.

In terms of how festivalgoers are consuming their entertainment, there was a decline in both quantity and quality of music, with just 12% of festivalgoers saying they listened to their favorite music more than 10 times in the past year, compared to 26% last year.

This decline in frequency was the biggest change in quality for the 2017 music festivals. 

In fact, the average number of times a festival listener listened to a given artist in 2017 dropped from 18 to 15.

In fact the average quantity of music streamed from these festivals dropped from 8.8 million in 2016 to 5.9 million in 2017.

There was also a drop in quality of the music streamed to festivalgoers, as well as the quality of audio and video content being provided to festival-goers.

The average length of time a festival-goer listened to music in 2017 was 1 hour and 22 minutes.

In 2016, the length of a festivalgoer’s listening was 2 hours and 49 minutes, down from 3 hours and 19 minutes in 2017 when the average length was 2.9 hours and 34 minutes. 

There was an overall decrease in time spent watching videos and audio of festival-going fans, but the overall amount of time spent listening to music has been increasing.

While a big number of festivals have seen declines in audience size and attendance, there has been a resurgence in attendance in 2017 for some of the biggest music festivals around the world.

Coachellas attendance increased from 5,068 in 2016, to 5,547 in 2017 and 6,737 in 2018.

The total attendance of Coachellanas 2017 is up from 5.5.million in 2016.
