A Night at Abbey RoadAbbey Road Studios partnered with Airbnb on the global "A Night at…” campaign offering the chance to win a once-in-a lifetime experience; an access-all-areas overnight stay in Abbey Road Studios, including a recording session with super producer, Mark Ronson.
In a world-first, Abbey Road was listed on the Airbnb website as part of a competition, inviting the public to submit an entry detailing which song's recording they wish they had witnessed. For one night only, Studio Three was converted into a luxurious bedroom; this is the studio where Amy Winehouse famously recorded her last ever song with her hero, Tony Bennett, and where Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon was born. The lucky winners were treated to a VIP behind-the-scenes tour of the studios, learning about Abbey Road’s unique history before joining Ronson in the studio for a very special recording session. A 3-course dinner in the studios lounge followed, before the winners met the Abbey Road team, immersing themselves in the world of the iconic studios. The campaign achieved huge global reach including features on MTV, BBC Radio 1 and CNN Online.“Unless you are a recording artist, it is almost impossible to get inside Abbey Road Studios. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a music lover to cross its threshold and unearth thousands of stories that live within its walls,” said James McClure, Airbnb’s General Manager for Northern Europe. Mark Ronson, who is hosting the stay at Abbey Road Studios with Airbnb, said, “I was born and grew up ’round the corner from Abbey Road Studios, one of the greatest studios ever. Over the years working at Abbey Road, I’ve gotten to know many of the engineers there and hearing the legendary stories of recording albums is one of the great perks of being in the building. 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.”
