Shakespeare once wrote that ‘if music be the food of love, play on’ and now we know the specific genre most likely to spark a relationship.

The SSE Hyrdo has found that love is in the air at rock gigs across the UK. Fans of the genre were found to be the most likely to meet a future partner at a gig according to a survey carried out by the venue.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the survey revealed that 1 in 6 UK adults have met a partner at a live music gig and that the people of Sheffield were the most likely to begin a relationship to classical music.

The venue surveyed 2,003 UK adults and found that rock was the most popular genre in Scottish cities whereas cities like Bristol and Southampton preferred Indie/Alternative.

The survey found that people in Glasgow were 1.5 times more likely to find love at a gig than people in Edinburgh, but did not reveal whether love was in the Ayr.

Check out the full results below.
