dc.description.abstractThe study aimed to explore the relationship between an individual’s music preference, how they value Stimulation and Conformity, and how this relates to their attitudes towards recreational drug use. Participants (N=791) completed an online questionnaire which included questions from the STOMP, SVSS, and Generalized Attitudes Measure. Analysis showed that a preference for Upbeat and Conventional music styles was the strongest predictor for less favourable attitudes to drugs and this music preference had a weak positive significant relationship with valuing Conformity more. Energetic and Rhythmic & Intense and Rebellious music preferences had a weak positive significant relationship with more favourable attitudes to recreational drug use. Energetic and Rhythmic music preference also had a weak positive significant relationship with valuing Simulation more. This study identifies a relationship between certain music genres, one’s values and their attitudes towards recreational drug use, which highlights potential interventions surrounding drug-related incidents at music events.en
