Subject: Predicting the start of 2020s culture

Written By: bchris02 on 09/21/18 at 3:53 pm

This gets brought up in thread after thread.  I think it's definitely too early to start looking for 2020s culture or what will define the next decade.

Unlike 2008, 2018 has not brought us a significant political shift, an economic crisis, a significant musical movement/artist(s), or any game-changing consumer technology.  Those are among the factors that made 2008 the significant year that it was and why so many people consider it the year that gave birth to '10s culture.

I really don't see anything to indicate that 2018 is the start of the cultural 2020s.  Then again I'm getting older now and am not as up on what is popular for teens/college-aged people as I was in 2008.  Still, 2018 feels like we are on the downhill side of '10s culture yet nothing real substantial has come along yet to replace it.

I personally think '10s culture is here to stay until Trumpism dies.

I'm going to say 2021, but this is just a guess. This guess is based on the idea that many decades had their cultural start in a year that ended with a 1 (1971, 1981, 1991, 2001).

I would split the 2010's into two parts - the classic 2010's and the new age 2010's

The classic 2010's: 2010-2016
The new age 2010's: 2016-2019

This is not to be confused with the core 2010's, which I would define as being 2013-2017.

2016 is the final classic 2010s year I agree 100%

There might be some changes in 2019 but I'm just guessing.

Honestly, if people were looking for a significant political shift, 2016 would've been that year.

I think  by late 2019 things will start changing rapidly fast but don't think 2020s culture will be noticeable until 2021.
