Attending the Takoma Park Folk Festival Is Good for Your Health

March 31, 2018

You love live music, right?  Well, it turns out that it's not just fun, engaging, and transporting. A new study by O2 and Patrick Fagan, expert in behavioral science and Associate Lecturer at Goldsmith’s University, reveals that attending live music performances - specifically live, not just listening alone at home - confers substantial health benefits on attendees:

  • Longer lifespan

  • Increased sense of wellbeing - more effective than yoga and dog walking!

Most importantly, mark your calendar for September 16, 2018 and come to the Takoma Park Folk Festival - it's good for you! (And tell others you care about and want to be healthy to come too!)
