For over a decade, this site has been focused primarily on music and travel. As our kid grew into adulthood and we became empty nesters, we looked for more and more opportunities to meld the two. We have started traveling for concerts and festivals, literally planning vacations around them. Which is why I was thrilled to hear about Vibee, a new venture from Live Nation – which aims to help us with that. Launched in April 2023, Vibee is a music-led destination experience company that builds unique experiences for music fans in killer locations around the world.

Excited About The Possibilities
I know it’s not just me who is looking for these kind of opportunities. Fans are looking for more meaningful ways to connect with and learn about their favorite artists. And in turn, artists are seeking more meaningful ways to engage with their fans and invite them into their worlds. To this end, Vibee focuses on fan-to-artist connections through three main ways: Curated multi-day experiences, Festival integrations, and Las Vegas residencies. (Yes, you read that last one correctly – i.e. U2 at the Sphere!)
People who know my family know I’m the planner of the bunch. And I am pretty good at it. But the idea of just being able to hand the logistics over to someone else sounds like heaven.
I also like that Vibee is listening to both fans and artists and building the experiences around what resinates. It sounds like the idea is to make things more personal and meaningful. And because of Vibee’s access to artist and industry partners, the company can secure a wide variety of the world’s best performers in top resorts and vacation locations.
Bonus: another priority for Vibee is ensuring packages are customizable, with a range of accommodation options available at different price tiers. Heck yeah!
I am ready to check it out, how about you?!
