London named top music-listening UK city
A poll by Spotify found that the English capital had the highest average number of minutes of music listened to by each Spotify user and officials put the results down to London's rich musical heritage.
The music service was surprised, however, by how far down the likes of Manchester (eighth) and Liverpool (ninth) were on the list.
Both north-west cities have a long music traditions with Manchester giving birth to the 'Madchester' sound of the '90s not to mention of the likesof Oasis, The Stone Roses, The Happy Mondays and The Smiths.
Liverpool is of course famous for being the birthplace of The Beatles, one of the UK's most iconic exports.
Will Hope, director of label relations at Spotify, said: "It's interesting to see that the UK's second biggest community of music fans are in Nottingham, pushing the more famously 'musical' cities of Manchester and Liverpool down the list."
