Abbey Road Studios, home of the Beatles, will host an Airbnb sleepover

One of music’s most legendary studios where artists like the Beatles, Amy Winehouse and Pink Floyd recorded, will host the winners of an Airbnb contest for a one-of-a-kind slumber party.

For one night only in October, four guests will enter the hallowed halls of Abbey Road Studios in London where they will be greeted by DJ, songwriter and producer Mark Ronson.

Once inside, they’ll have free access to wander around the studio and channel the musical genius of The Beatles, whose legacy lives on in the cigarette burns etched on the piano used to record ‘The White Album’.

Likewise, Abbey Road Studios is where Winehouse recorded his last song with Tony Bennett and where Pink Floyd recorded “Dark Side of the Moon”.

“Unless you’re a recording artist, it’s almost impossible to get into Abbey Road studios. It’s a unique opportunity for a music lover to cross its threshold and discover the thousands of stories that live within its walls,” said James McClure, Airbnb’s General Manager for Northern Europe.

Guests will not only be able to tickle the same ivories played by John Lennon, but they will also be able to perform on their own with one of the instruments at hand and record their own tune under the direction of Ronson, the hitmaker behind “Uptown Trouille.”

“Abbey Road is like a second home to me,” he said in a statement.

“I was born in the neighborhood and I dreamed of joining the greats and recording one day within its walls. Now I have the chance to work there all the time. Over the years I got to know the team there and had the pleasure of hearing all the amazing stories from the many legends who graced its studios.

It’s the latest in a long list of exclusive sleepover experiences hosted by the short-term vacation rental site. Other recent examples include a shark tank in Paris, a floating apartment on the Great Barrier Reef, and a Danish castle that served as the setting for Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.”

Winners will be transported from anywhere in the world. To enter, contestants must explain which song they wish they could have seen recorded at the studio and why by October 6 BST.
