Top Trip Rentals Supports Musicians During SXSW

Artist Lizzo album cover SXSW 2017

In honor of two anniversaries–30 years of South by Southwest, Austin’s premier festival  (1987–2017), and Top Trip Rentals’ 10th anniversary, we gave SXSW 2017 musicians a special promotional rate during their stay. Yes, while ATX room rates hit high notes, we lowered rates to $30 a night so musicians could conveniently rock a 6th Street launch pad during their SXSW’s performances.

Crazy, right? Well, Top Trip Rentals believes Austin’s soul is its artists. We wanted to tip an appreciative hat to artists of all stripes (musical, visual, theatrical) who’ve made success possible. When SXSW emerged out of the Austin Chronicle’s think tanks in 1987, some 700 people attended; my, how things have grown! In 2016 alone, SXSW brought $325.3 million into Austin economy’s. The average nightly cost of an ATX hotel room that year? $350.

So, yeah, Top Trip Rentals thought our 10th anniversary was the perfect opportunity to give back to SXSW bands.

“We wanted to support the original mission of SXSW, the music portion, because that’s what basically put Austin on the map as a destination city,” explained Chereen Fisher, owner of Top Trip Rentals.

Top Trip was honored and thrilled to have artists from all over the world at our vacation rentals. This year’s list of SXSW musicians and bands included

Lizzo,

The TonTons,

Tunde Olaniran,

White Reaper,

Sundara Karma,

Margo Price,

and more.

We couldn’t have asked for better guests, and so Top Trip Rentals created a tradition. During big festivals and events, we’re reserving a portion of our vacation rentals at affordable prices for performers, those souls who get on stage and give their energy, genius, and artistry every night.

 

Lizzo is a hot ticket at SXSW 2017

ACL 2016 is almost here

C3 - ACL Weekend 1

ACL is coming up fast. And that means, time to pick your favorite bands. Every year we go, it’s so hard to pick between acts when there are two equally interesting bands playing at the same time in opposite ends of Zilker Park where ACL is held. And it’s impossible to run between stages (well, it can be done but not easily) during performances to try to see two acts at once. The only way to manage your band picks is through a careful review of the ACL website lineup page that includes bios and videos, then download the app and set up your schedule.

What are Top Trip Rentals’ staff members psyched about? Here’s a few of our recommendations.

Sandra’s Top 5:

  1. Die Antwoord
  2. Bomba Estereo
  3. Kendrick Lamar
  4. The Chainsmokers
  5. Mumford & Sons

Rebecca’s Top 5: 

  1. Radiohead
  2. Kendrick Lamar
  3. Band of Horses
  4. Willie Nelson
  5. Wild Belle

Rene’s Top 5:

  1. Willie Nelson
  2. Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats
  3. Quaker City Night Hawks
  4. Luisa Maita
  5. Corrine Bailey Rae

Cara’s Top 5:

  1. Haim
  2. The Chainsmokers
  3. Kendrick Lamar
  4. Tory Lanes
  5. Conor Oberst

As you can see, a real mix of bands and styles from our crew at Top Trip Rentals, but we guarantee, you won’t find a bad band at ACL. And if you’re not much of a planner, wandering the park and staying at a stage that sounds interesting could yield a great new find.

And finally, the kind folks at ACL put together a great “tips” guide that includes an FAQ for getting the most out of the Festival, now in its 15th year. Read this to learn more details like how to get from downtown to Zilker, what items you can and cannot take, and more info on programs happening in addition to music during the event.

See you there!
