Many will enjoy going to a music festival but then not even listen to music at home.
They go for the atmosphere and all the other things you can do at a festival.
I could even imagine going to a football match myself, just to see the arena, taste the atmosphere and experience the event.
But you don't get any of that by sitting on the couch at home and watching a live broadcast of the event (which festival go-ers generally don't do).

I get personal attachment, but I don't get how someone you don't know, but who just so happens to live in the same country as you (he was born in Belgium), can give you that personal attachment.
Some friends of mine played in a band, didn't particularly liked their music, but I never missed a show to show some support for my homies.
Also not the same as placing a bet, I could place a bet on any match if I think I could make some money and with my money invested the match could be very exciting indeed, but these people aren't betting.
