Hotels unveil 2011 season music lineup
Sunday 01 May 2011
Renaissance Hotels has announced its 2011 musical lineup as it heads into the second season of its in-hotel music program.
The RLife Live entertainment lineup, which offers up Renaissance properties around the world as a stage for up-and-coming musicians, was announced last year and has already played host to the likes of Robyn, Theivery Corporation and Bruno Mars.
Renaissance announced April 28 that artists signed on for the forthcoming season include Bruno Mars (again), NERD, Australian singer/songwriter Lenka, Hugo (recently featured on the "No Strings Attached" soundtrack and Andrew Allen, a singer-songwriter with an album set for release this summer.
Artists are drawn from both independent labels and established brands such as Sony and will be on hand for everything from acoustic performances in lounges to listening parties, unexpected DJ sets and post-concert events.
"We’ll make it easier for music lovers to participate as we roll out to more Renaissance locations in the US and globally and promote through sweepstakes and other social media efforts,' said the company's Dan Vinh.
But it's not just Renaissance that is investing big in music nowadays - W Hotels last week unveiled the latest stops for Symmetry Live, its own live concert series.
W Hotel's season will be kicked off by British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding, in San Francisco, before traveling to to W Hotels in New York City, Chicago, Austin, Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta, the chain said.
