NEW YORK—June 5, 2015—As Chicago plays host to a world of music lovers and crowds of festival-goers during Lollapalooza weekend, Airbnb, the world’s leading community-driven hospitality company, will be partnering with Lollapalooza and MS MR to provide the chance to win a private in-home concert for one lucky host and 20 guests on Wednesday, July 29.
“We’re psyched to be coming back to Chicago for Lolla again this year – 2013 was already next level, but we know this year will top that,” said Max Hershenow, MS MR. “And it’s exciting to be working with Airbnb on a special private performance. I host in my apartment while on tour and am genuinely a big believer in the Airbnb ethos.”
“Lollapalooza Chicago is a destination for Chicagoans and visitors alike and there’s no better way to share in the excitement of the weekend than by hosting a fellow music fan,” said Andrea La Mesa, Airbnb Regional Director for North America. “We’re excited to honor those who open up their homes on Airbnb by providing them with a chance to win their own private Lolla performance.”
The experience for one host and 20 of their guests will include an in-home exclusive performance hosted by MS MR (Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow), and it will be the first time songs from their new album, How Does It Feel, released on July 17 via Columbia Records will be performed live in the US. Additionally, the winner will also be provided with six 3-day VIP passes to attend Lollapalooza. Ten winners will also receive two 3-day passes to the festival.
For a chance to win, visit airbnb.com/lollapalooza on Airbnb no later than July 7, 2015 at 11:59pm PT and answer the question, “How would you welcome MS MR into you home and to the city of Chicago during Lollapalooza weekend?”.
