Airbnb's new contest lets lucky fans crash with Mark Ronson at Abbey Road Studios
Thanks to Airbnb, music geeks — or those looking for a luxurious getaway or a brush with fame — can now enter a contest to stay at London’s iconic Abbey Road Studios. And beyond staying in the one-of-a-kind digs, which a press release claims haven’t housed a bed since 1969, guests will be greeted by one of the industry’s hottest names: “Uptown Funk” producer Mark Ronson.
“I was born and grew up ’round the corner from Abbey Road Studios, one of the greatest studios ever,” Ronson said in a statement. “It’s incredible that Airbnb are getting Abbey Road to open up the doors so I can share it with people who love music as much as I do.”
Four guests will be granted lodging at the studio on the night of Oct. 15, where they’ll get to play with Abbey Road’s variety of instruments and equipment and record a track with Ronson. And they might even get to ask Ronson about Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, Joanne, which drops Oct. 21 and features extensive contributions from the producer.
To enter, fans can head over to the Airbnb listing and write up a bit about themselves and which song recorded at Abbey Road Studios they wish they’d witnessed the sessions for.
