Consumption is a term which can help to conceptualize some critical parts of modern social life. Cultural consumption refers to amount and type of cultural products someone use in his/her life. In the modern society, cultural consumption can help to theorize social differentiation and identity. In Iran, which has a diverse ethnic culture and there are not much data and findings on cultural consumption doing such a research seems essential. This will help for cultural policy planning. Cultural consumption can be divided in two dimensions: quantity and quality of consumption. Although most members of any society may consume music, but it has different functions among diverse social categories. In this study referring to youth music consumption we have tried to understand their feelings about music and their tastes. We exploited qualitative research perspective, so we employed participative evaluation, semi-organized interviews, and deep interviews. In the second half of the research quantitative data gathered from a 300 random sample in the Bandar-Abbas city. Respondents who were youth (15 to 35 years old) answered a questionnaire to test the relationship among social stratification and music preference. Results showed that there are significant relationships among social prestige, power, economic status, and music consumption in Bandar-Abbas city.
