Airbnb has launched Music Experiences on its global Trips platform, offering access to intimate live music performances, underground nightlife and special experiences hosted by artists, industry professionals and those plugged-into the local music scene.
Open to travellers and locals alike, people can now use Airbnb to engage with local music scenes in a personal and authentic way. The company now offers around 100 concerts around the world per month with a relatively small audience.
“Music is an incredible way to bring people together. We’re launching Music Experiences to give people access to exclusive and immersive music events”- Brian Chesky – CEO AIRBNB
The basic idea is to bring strangers together in faraway lands. On average, 50 to 100 fans attend these prestigious, semi-private events. Airbnb’s Head of Music, James Beshara, expects the number of venues to skyrocket to 20,000 concerts per month at the end of this year.
