Young people's love for clubbing in the UK has waned, according to a new study.
18 to 35-year-old Guardian readers were asked to share their opinion on nightlife, notably their views on nightclubs nowadays, with 131 of the 196 included admitting they'd rather not go out. Reasons for doing so spanned from overpricing and apparent poor quality clubs to health and state of mind.
A 33-year-old surveyed said: “Bouncers are always rude and aggressive with no cause; DJs usually play what they want not what people want to listen to; the drinks are overpriced."
Now we don't disagree that clubbing in the capital can be pricey, but we're not too sure about the view of "music is shit now.” Just check our exclusive music section to hear all the amazing stuff that's around at the moment.
Others commented that the risk of dodgy photos appearing on social media had an influence on not going out, with some saying they'd rather meet their mates for a few quiet drinks instead of trying to catch up "shouting over music".
Obviously there's a lot more than the 196 people surveyed who go out so it's not a completely fair overview, but it certainly doesn't look good when paired with Bloc co-founder George Hull's outburst on young ravers.
