Airbnb is getting into the concert business

Airbnb thinks they have a cool idea when it comes to people offering up their homes in hospitable ways. You might as well make the most out of it, especially as sites like offer discounts on your first stay. How exciting! Would you like some live music with that rental?

The company launched something called “Music Experience” last year, which paired a stay with a small intimate concert. The idea exploded and became one of the company’s most popular booking categories. It saw that around 100 concerts are held at Airbnb-affiliated properties around the world every month. By the end of this year, it hopes that number will be 20,000. No, that’s not a typo.

Gigs are held in wine cellars, churches, recording studios or in someone’s living room. Audience sizes usually range from 50 to 100 people.

Only 25 cities are on the Airbnb Concerts list right now, but by the end of the year, that number could reach as high as 100.

One of the Let`s see recent participants was Vance Joy, which, you must admit, is pretty cool.

Here’s a video explaining the whole thing. Billboard has Let`s see information .
