The global partnership involves hosting multiple live gigs across 17 countries, promoting ibis' passion for music. This is the latest step in the brand’s transformation, offering local residents and travellers a totally new experience in hospitality, creating vibrant social hubs for increased social interaction with the local community.
In India, with ibis’ cultural movement for both guests and employees - ibism, this program is an additional step in bringing another personalised experience for guests.
Featuring a host of artists across genres in seven ibis hotels across India, ibis Music aims to connect with travellers and local residents using music as the core strategy. The program will provide a platform to new and upcoming artists to showcase their talent and extend a quirky space to music lovers or travellers who enjoy sitting in a relaxed, uplifting atmosphere with some great tunes.

About ibis MUSIC


The energy of the crowd, the rhythm of the music, the impulse to dance, the urge to sing, we are drawn to it. Live music is always more than just listening, it's an experience, a binding force, it has the power to bring people together, to create memories.

Music is our passion, and it's going be alive in our hotels. Our mission is to be a welcoming and vibrant musical lighthouse: a beacon, a place to listen as much as a place to stay. With music, we are open. This has two important sides. Firstly, we will host live music. Small intimate gigs with known and emerging artists, bringing our guests closer to the music they love, and offering them something new to fall in love with.

Secondly, we provide a platform that supports the emerging talent, connecting them with successful artists, giving them a stage to perform |
