Travellers feel at home wherever they are
ibis hotels are famous for making travellers feel at home wherever they are. And music has a similar effect, connecting people around the globe to create a vibrant atmosphere. In 2019, we’re becoming a lighthouse for music, creating a home for musicians, fans, and unique performances. To showcase this passion across the year, we are proud to announce the launch of ibis Music in March. Hosting over 40 amazing events across 17 countries, featuring headline and up and coming artists, it’ll all be connected right here via our ibis Music hub, where you’ll be able to hear every band, watch exclusive live in-hotel concerts, and stream personally-curated playlists for every mood.
For these unique performances, we’ve teamed up with one of the most respected record labels in the world. Sony Music UK’s 4th Floor Creative Group will be bringing some of the biggest acts across six countries direct to our hotels. These are artists who regularly perform live to thousands of people, playing one-off shows for you. From the UK, we have thrilling new singer-songwriter Tom Grennan, fresh from a sell-out national tour and a Top 5 album. In France, Boulevard des airs have become one of the country’s most loved bands, and we’re delighted to have them play a series of intimate gigs in our hotels. In Brazil, it’s our pleasure to welcome sertaneja superstar Lucas Lucco, who’ll be performing unmissable concerts for you. And across Germany, Switzerland and Austria will be indie-pop giants OK KID, who’ll be highlighting tracks from their successful recent album ‘Sensation’.
We’ve also partnered with the world’s most popular streaming platform Spotify, to identify the hottest trends in emerging local music. From pop to funk, from rock to soul, these are the breakthrough acts of today and the superstars of tomorrow, all playing one-off shows for ibis Music across 17 countries.
An incredible year of music
For the up & coming artists, as well as playing these special in-hotel dates, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to perform at an international festival, with 9 hand-picked acts having the opportunity to play live at on the Europe Stage presented by ibis at Hungary’s atmospheric Sziget Festival, culminating in the public crowning of ibis Music’s best up-&-coming artist, who’ll receive a life-changing prize to help launch their careers.
We can’t wait to kick off this incredible year of music across ibis hotels around the world and online via our ibis Music Hub. We shall be unveiling our gig dates very soon, so stay alert via our social channels to learn how to attend these unmissable shows, and stay tuned here to the ibis Music Hub to catch all the action.
