Music represents a significant portion of the local economy thanks to the numerous musical performances and festivals that take place in the city; the direct and indirect employment it generates (>6.5%); the properties owned by the musical societies (buildings, theatres, etc.); the music classes taught, etc.. In addition, many hours are dedicated each week to music lessons and practice, and musicians take part in numerous concerts, festivities, processions and parades every year.
In 2018, the city allocated €2.2 million (10.38% of the municipal budget) to the music sector. Much of this budget (over €1.02 million) goes to the Conservatory, which has 30 full-time teachers. Over 4 regulated music education institutions and 6 non-regulated music schools exist in the city.
Llíria is home to two world-renowned bicentennial music associations (each with a budget of over €1.25 million) and 11 other more recent ones. 13% of Llirians are members of these associations. Over 4,500 people (20%) have some musical instruction and 1,500 Llirians (6.5%) have music as their main livelihood.
There are over 22 festivals (some of them with more than 15 editions), and music conferences and multi-arts festivals involving other creative fields.
