As an introduction to this special issue, a contemporary economic-geographic perspective on the relationship between places and economic activities is used and this is applied to popular music. From this perspective, it becomes clear how music is embedded in places and why a much broader socio-economic context has to be taken into account when looking at cities and music. It also helps to explain why large cities are, in the long run, in an advantageous position vis-à-vis smaller cities that usually only thrive in one style or fashion era and not much beyond. The contributions are introduced and a wider research agenda is indicated.
