Tracking musical expenditure: June

Month 10 of my tracking project and there was a fair bit of cash spent on music-related activities, mainly due to the Glastonbury 2010 music festival (which was great in case you missed any of the BBC coverage).  A total of £240.15 was spent in June, of which £210 of that was blown on festival activities. I also bought a couple of bits of clothing merchandise (a David Bowie t-shirt and a Guns'n'Roses t-shirt).

As for traditional albums or singles sales a rather modest sum £3.37 was spent on chart eligible material.  The running total on albums/singles is £195.99 with the grand total being £1535.68.  It would seem that expenditure in the musical economy is alive and kicking - it has migrated into non-traditional areas.
