Airbnb has expanded its Trips platform to include specially-tailored ‘Music Experiences’ packages that include concerts, parties and experiences with industry professionals.
Late last year, the accommodation company added Trips to its repertoire, arranging specific experiences for tourists all over the world.
With Music Experiences, music lovers can embark on auditory adventures in some of the world’s most exciting musical destinations.
Nearly 100 experiences are available in a total of 13 countries, including some in Los Angeles, Tokyo, London and Nairobi.
Cape Town has also been given its own experience, called “All Artists Here”. The tour teaches visitors how to play the djembe and takes them on an authentic township experience.
“We’re launching Music Experiences to give people access to exclusive and immersive music events,” says Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky. “Through the platform, we’re able to support up and coming and local artists by connecting people to their events and bringing their music to even more fans around the world.”
The programme aims to show travellers a good time wherever they go, bringing a cultural aspect to the app’s accommodation focus.
