Host intimate shows in unique spaces
Airbnb Concerts are a new way to experience live music. With fewer than 100 guests, they take place in surprising locations such as treehouses, recording studios, steamships, and more.
Anyone can become a concert host:
Bring your audience closer to the music
Expand your audience
Stand out in your local scene and introduce yourself to music fans from around the world. For musicians, this is a great opportunity to grow both your local and international fanbase without the cost of going on tour.
Build your brand
Gain credibility with Airbnb’s trusted review system, and connect with an audience by sharing your process or inspiration. Airbnb Concerts can help you tell your story, one memorable show at a time.
Host on your terms
Where and when Airbnb Concerts happens is up to you. In addition to selecting the venue and artists, you can set your own schedule—whether you’re hosting daily, weekly, or monthly.
Earn money doing what you love
Build consistent income without relying on a manager or booking agent. Airbnb handles all the payment processing, provides 24-hour customer service, and more so you can focus on the music.

What is Airbnb?
Airbnb connects people with places to stay and things to do around the world. The community is powered by hosts, who provide their guests with the unique opportunity to travel like a local.
What is an Airbnb experience?
An activity designed and led by inspiring locals. Experiences go beyond typical tours or classes by immersing guests in your unique world. Anyone can share a hobby, skill, or expertise without needing an extra room.
Each Airbnb Concert is designed and organized by a host who has the artistic freedom to choose the artist, venue, and ticket price. Becoming a concert host means you’ll be a concert promoter, band manager, and business owner all rolled into one. When organizing a concert and setting the ticket price, it’s important that hosts consider the cost of the venue, the artist fees, and any other costs involved.
As a concert host, you’ll introduce guests to the music and places you’re most passionate about. Hosts don’t have to be musicians themselves—although many of them are—they just need a strong passion for bringing together live music and people in an interesting setting. These small shows range in size, but are capped at a maximum of 100 guests. Hosts procure the artists and often the venue, so it helps to have a local network to tap into.
Concert hosts are responsible for sourcing the artists, finding a unique venue (though we can help), event logistics, and making sure everything run smoothly.

Most hosts use their knowledge of the city and personal connections to find unique venues. Get creative! We’ve seen concerts hosted in wine cellars, bookstores, art galleries, breweries, and even docked ships. If you have questions about finding a venue, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for people who are genuine, passionate, and knowledgeable about the music community they represent.
