Airbnb: offering a music-themed night with Mark Ronson

Online accommodation provider Airbnb is giving one person and three of their friends the chance to stay for one night with musician, DJ and songwriter Mark Ronson at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London.

Musicians who have recorded at the iconic location include Adele, Pink Floyd, Tony Bennett, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Alicia Keys and The Beatles. 
The event, taking place on 15 October, will see four lucky guests immersed in music from the moment they arrive. They can play the Beatles’ piano, still marked with cigarette burns dating back to the recordings of The White Album and will also have the chance to see the worn down strings on the Steinway Vertegrand, dubbed the ‘Mrs Mills’ piano. Guests can also try their hand at mixing on the world’s largest mixing board.

Upon arrival, guests will be greeted by Mark Ronson before being given an access-all-areas walk-around by Ronson of the Studios – a nineteenth century townhouse that is now home to more than three studios across four floors. A local to the neighbourhood and an Abbey Road regular, Ronson will also share production tips ahead of guests recording their very own track in the studio that evening.

To be in with a chance of winning, those interested need to enter via a listing on Airbnb's site, submitting an entry detailing which song's recording they wish they had witnessed at Abbey Road Studios. 

The contest is open internationally, with Airbnb providing flights for the winner and three guests. 

Airbnb previously partnered with Waterstones for an in-store sleepover and this year, it hosted an immersive event at a Shoreditch townhouse, showcasing London life.
