The Perfect Live Music Line-Up for a Festival Wedding
The perfect festival wedding needs the perfect festival music line-up. We present to you a selection of the best wedding bands to provide the soundtrack for each part of your big day: from the lazy afternoon ambiance of a laid back acoustic duo, to the uplifting energy of an early evening folk band, all the way through to the exhilarating evening headliners.
One of the most popular acoustic duos around, The Jetters are the perfect choice if you’re looking to create a chilled-out vibe during your afternoon drinks. These guys are sublimely talented musicians with extensive song-writing and live performing experience: they’ve written for and recorded with chart-topping acts and appeared at prestigious venues like Wembley Stadium and the O2 Arena. The Jetters even offer a bespoke first dance song-writing service to give you a unique serenade to celebrate your new life together.
Picture the scene: you and your new spouse surrounded by family and friends, champagne in hand, the sun beating down, as you’re treated to live-lounge style renditions of soulful tunes ranging from Otis Redding and Jimi Hendrix to The White Stripes and Aloe Blac. Soul Junkies are versatile performers who can tailor their set to match your tastes and are also available as full band for an all-in-one wedding entertainment package.
This charismatic pair specialise in quirky, upbeat performances, so if you’re looking to start the party early and bring a smile to your guests faces, The Peaky Blinders fit the bill. As well as creating a buzz with their energetic versions of tunes by Mumford and Sons, Blink 182 and Taylor Swift (yes, we all need to shake it off, even on our wedding day!), The Peaky Blinders offer a roaming set, where these natural born performers wander amongst your guests as they play.
If you’ve got a more vintage theme in mind, Rosie Day Vintage perfectly captures the glamour and nostalgia of a bygone age and brings it to life before your very eyes. Rosie Day conjures a dreamy atmosphere with sumptuous performances of songs by the likes of Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse. The owner of an enviable collection of gorgeous vintage frocks, Rosie Day is happy to consult with you to match her image to suit your wedding theme.
Globe-trotting minstrels Gypsy Nation hail from Italy and will leave you and your guests spellbound with their dynamic set of traditional Italian and Spanish songs and gypsy-jazz infused reworkings of classic tracks by Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk and The White Stripes. Eccentric and supremely talented, Gypsy Nation transport you to the verdant Tuscan hills with their sensational musicianship and simmering Latin sounds.

Are you looking to create a folky festival vibe, but worried about a limited song selection? If so, Wicker Park are the answer.

For the full festival experience, Wicker Park also offer an amplified pop and rock set to take your wedding reception into the early hours.
Ok, Cosmic Balloon could hardly be described as folk, but their brand of psychedelic rock is worthy of any festival stage. These guys are veteran performers who have appeared around the world at festivals, concerts and private events, and they’ll astound you and your guests with their intricate arrangements of songs by acts as diverse as Talking Heads, The Doors, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, David Bowie and many more.

Another band who love to get involved and roam amongst your guests, The Roving Rabble are a gregarious bunch with a penchant for feel-good tunes from throughout the decades. Thanks to their entirely acoustic line-up, which includes acoustic guitar, upright bass, percussion and sax, The Roving Rabble are a great choice if your venue has restrictions on the volume levels of live music.
Park Lane are a vintage-style band with a contemporary edge. These stylish musicians deliver a captivating selection of modern tunes from artists such as Bruno Mars, Nirvana and The Weeknd in a pulsating vintage swing style.
