Music has significant impacts on the society. These results vary from social, cultural, economic as well as tourist impacts (Etiosa, 2012). The music event is likely to affect the cultural beliefs and practices of the hosting community of an event. The sound and the messages released to the audiences through the music directly impact the listeners of the music in numerous ways (Chau & Riforgiate, 2010). The impact is often dominant amongst the youth and the adolescents. Economic impacts can either be positive or negative to the hosting community. Tourist impact can affect the community positively through increased economic income or negatively through corrosion of the cultural and social practices by the city (Duke, 2014).
