Spotify has today revealed that its users in London stream more music per day than users in any other city in the UK.

The music streaming service studied the average number of minutes of music listened to by each Spotify user in each major city in the UK and established that users in the capital spend more time than anyone else listening to their favourite songs. Spotify bosses were, however, interested to discover that traditional musical cities such as Liverpool and Manchester came lower down the list, behind second placed Nottingham and Bristol, which came third.

Will Hope, Director of Label Relations at Spotify, says: "Given London’s rich musical history and briliant music scene it’s no surprise that London tops the charts when it comes to having the biggest music fans in the UK. However, 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."

The top 10 musical cities in the UK according to Spotify are:

1. London
2. Nottingham
3. Bristol
4. Edinburgh
5. Leeds
6. Sheffield
7. Glasgow
8. Manchester
9. Liverpool
10. Birmingham

Meanwhile, Daft Punk's new single 'Get Lucky' recently became the most streamed song in a 24-hour period on Spotify in the UK and US ever.
