OutKast’s Big Boi Invites Fans to Stay at ‘The Dungeon’

There’s a dungeon that is located in Atlanta, Georgia where people may want to visit. But, it’s not for the reason you may be thinking!

Some of the most influential music acts from Georgia were part of a collective named The Dungeon Family. Amongst some of the people involved were OutKast, Goodie Mob, Sleepy Brown, Killer Mile, Cool Breeze, Slim Calhoun, and the production team of Organized Noise. The studio they recorded out of was aptly named “The Dungeon.”

Antwan André Patton, better known as OutKast’s Big Boi, has announced that he is the owner of The Dungeon and it has recently been placed as a listing on Airbnb. To celebrate Black Music Month and highlight the distinct impact of Atlanta’s music scene, the six-time Grammy winner is becoming a Host on Airbnb for the first time. Next week, Big Boi will be hosting three overnight stays at “The Dungeon” starting on June 29, July 1, and July 3, and the overnight stay will only cost $25 a night. This will coincide with the 25th anniversary of Outkast’s release of “ATLiens.”

“Atlanta is my home, and I grew up with The Dungeon Family in this house,” says Big Boi in a written statement. “We would spend hours hanging out in the basement, writing rhymes and putting together beats at all hours of the night. Since purchasing the home, I’ve been excited to open its doors and welcome the next generation of artists to the space that inspired countless songs.”

Fans will be able to live similar to how The Dungeon Family once did and will even get the chance to record their own sounds at the home where southern classics like “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik,” “Spottieottiedopaliscious” and “Elevators” were recorded.

Included on the nights of June 29, July 1, and July 3 at The Dungeon:

  • Guided access to the basement of the house, a ‘90s relic where Outkast and Goodie Mob recorded some of their breakout hits. The walls still bear the signatures of the artists who got their start there!

  • Kicking back and playing records in rooms styled to commemorate key Atlanta locations that inspired The Dungeon Family’s tracks.

  • Access to a state-of-the-art in-home studio, outfitted with Yamaha audio equipment.

  • Arriving in style with local transportation (within Atlanta city limits)** to and from the house in an Escalade.

  • Discovering surprises throughout the house that are remnants of The Dungeon Family’s illustrious past and lasting impact on music today.

Airbnb is making a one-time donation to Atlanta Public Schools Music Department to expand resources and increase access to music education for kids aged K-12th grade.

For those who would like to book a stay at The Dungeon, it can be done starting Friday, June 25 at 1 p.m. EDT. To book this overnight and explore more stays and Experiences inspired by Black Music Month, visit airbnb.com/blackmusicmonth.***
