The considerations presented in the following article are focused on event tourism. The aim of the study is to determine whether participation in music events is a form of tourism or just a kind of leisure time activity. Due to this purpose a comparison of concerts and Open'er Festival participants' behavior has been made. A part of the analysis consisted in assessment of tourist activities held during the events. The study`s results reveal that participation in music events is not a separate form of tourism and a person who takes part in concerts and music festivals is not a tourist in the strict sense.
