Based in London, this fabulous four piece is assembled from a quartet of the best young musicians in the U.K. They come together here to form one of the most exciting function acts in the country. Their first set is a Mumford & Sons style, banjo-driven barn raiser packed with unforgettable tunes, both classic and contemporary. Their soaring harmonies, faultless delivery and light-hearted stage presence is the perfect thing to get all your guests on their feet.

Leaving you with nothing left to do but kick off your shoes and dance into the early hours with the rest of your guests!

All four members of Festival Nights are full-time, professional musicians with a host of commanding performance and production credits to their name. The band have shared the stage with some of the biggest acts in music - including Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, Kate Nash, Jack Savoretti & Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly.

Testimonials

“The band were absolutely incredible, exceeded all our expectations. Sounded amazing and the mix of songs were perfect. A big thank you. Luke and Kate x”Luke Garcia - Wedding, The Riding School, Derby

“We are back to normality after our wedding and honeymoon now, so wanted to say some 'thank you's'. Firstly, thank you for all your help in the lead up to our wedding, the organisation and communication could not have been easier. Having been initially concerned about possible disruption with the band setting up in the middle of the reception, I can honestly say, other than introducing themselves on arrival, we would not have known they were there until they were all set up and ready to go. It really was seamless. We have had endless comments on their performance and how amazing it was. Their style really fit in with the day and I do not think there was a second when they were playing that the dance floor was not at capacity. We had an incredible day, thanks in part to the phenomenal talent and organisation of the band, so THANK YOU!! We have already passed your name on to many friends who have events coming up.”Mr & Mrs Hollingum - Wedding, Wooton Farm Estate, Lewes

“5/5. Everyone enjoyed the band very much, we thought they were great. The band arrived on time and were ready to play when we were ready. Many guests asked who the band were and how we found them!”Michael Keats - Wedding, Barford Barn, Wiltshire

“Just a quick email to say thank you so much for helping to organise the booking of Festival Nights to play at our wedding at the Granary Barns. We had SOOO many compliments on how wonderfully talented they all are and the dance floor was packed with guests of every age all night. They performed our first dance request beautifully and both sets were flawless. Thank you, thank you, thank you :) If you could pass our thanks onto the band that would be brilliant. Thanks again. Best wishes”Clare and Richard Jones - The Granary Barns, Cambridge

“Hi Phoebe, I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know that the Festival Nights were amazing at our wedding!! They had our guests dancing from start to finish and the way they performed our first dance was better than we could have ever expected!! All of our friends and family couldn’t get over how great they were and they were definitely a key highlight for most! Our venue also said they were one of the best bands they had ever had perform there! Please thank them again from us! Thanks”Sallie - Wedding, Blake Hall, Essex

“Festival Nights were the perfect wedding band for our festival themed wedding! They were amazing, the songs were upbeat and kept everyone on the dance floor all night! We had so many guests coming up to us saying how good they were! They also learnt our first dance request and performed it brilliantly! Thanks guys! Thanks,”Amy Killick - Wedding, Court Farm, Somerset

““We just want to say a massive thank you. They were absolutely amazing. They knocked it out the park! The Huey Lewis number for the first dance was spot on. Then Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al was a personal highlight. Everyone was up and dancing the whole time. We hope the guys enjoyed themselves! Very happy to give a reference or such like. Just let me know.””Jonathan Gartside - Wedding, The Loft Studios, London

“We booked the Festival Nights for our wedding, all I can say is WOW.. They were absolutely unbelievable and totally blew us away. We knew they would be good from their promo video, but live they were a different story. Their repertoire of music and they way they effortlessly switched between the two was incredible and kept the dance floor packed all night. Literally every guest commented on how good they were and how much they enjoyed both sets and they were a huge highlight to our wedding day. Please pass on a huge thank you to the band and the sound engineer, we could not recommend them highly enough!!”Mr and Mrs Rhodes - Wedding, The Dickens Inn, London

“I just wanted to email to say thank you for all your help with booking Festival Nights for our wedding at Upwaltham Barns the other week. Everything was perfect! I also was hoping you might also be able to extend our thanks to the band. We absolutely loved them and had so much fun dancing at the end of the night! (Which I'm sure they realised as we got a little ridiculous... my husband's knees are still bruised from sliding along the floor!) Thanks also to them for obliging us with the barn dance... we had so much fun with it and I think the guests really enjoyed it! We had countless comments on how brilliant they were and lots of people said how wonderful it was to be sitting outside in the garden and hearing the live music coming from the barn!”Emma Cook - Wedding, Upwaltham Barns, West Sussex

“Can we just say a massive thank you to the band for playing at our wedding last night. Everything was done so professionally and a lovely bunch of guys too. We really appreciated them making the journey and everyone was very complimentary.”Nic & Mike - Wedding

“WOW! You guys were amazing at our wedding last weekend - thank you so, so much! We've had so many compliments about you and photos of the packed dance floor show just how great you were. We'd happily recommend you to anyone and will continue to think of reasons why we need to hire you again. Thank you.”Emily Brookes - Wedding, Marquee at Barn Farm, Wiltshire

“Festival Nights made our wedding even more amazing. They got everyone on the dancefloor from the get go and the dancing did not stop! They played such a good range of songs to please all of our guests and the lead singers voice and range was unreal....when they performed Kiss, he left us all gobsmacked! So many of our guests have commented on how good the band were and they really helped make the night. Thank you! Would highly recommend.”Kate and Jon - Bury Court, Farnham

“This band are, quite simply, excellent. Hiring a band you've not seen live is always a bit of a stab in the dark, even if all their reviews are good. This group are well rehearsed, well matched and very professional and we were so glad we hired them. The enthusiasm and energy they put into their performance impressed every one of our guests and my wife and I barely stopped dancing all night. I had the time later in the evening to have a drink and a chat with the band. They are such a friendly and approachable group that I think I neglected my guests for a good half hour. Festival Nights are very good at what they do. That they seem to enjoy doing it so much and also happen to be very nice people are both massive bonuses. We were lucky to have them at our wedding.”Steve - Wedding, Sandburn Hall, York

“Just a little note to say thank you to Festival Nights for performing at our wedding. They were not only incredible performers but were such nice guys and were flexible around our date, even at short notice. We were constantly asked throughout where we found the band because all the guests loved them, they helped create a wonderful atmosphere and our wedding would not have been the same without them.”Aaron - Wedding, Tetbury

“We had the best day ever on 6.8.16 and it was made even better by festival nights. They were such nice easy going guys who turned it into the best wedding ever! We are so lucky we booked such a good band! We can't thank them enough!”Dave Walton - Wedding, The Bull Field, Church Street

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you the Band. We were absolutely over the moon with them. Everyone thought they were amazing. Please send our thanks on. Kind Regards”Katherine and Lee Ford - Wedding, The Trafalgar Tavern, London

“Can you let the band know that we thought they were amazing .. All the guests loved them too .. There was lots of dancing !!!! And thought the first dance they learnt for us, heart of gold, was brilliant.”Sophie Crawley - Wedding, Ley Farm, Norwich

“We had a great time, the band was one of the highlights and we had so much great feedback from guests about how good they were. The set list was spot on and got everyone really dancing by the end of the night. We also loved having your sound people, it made it flow seamlessly and we didn’t even know they were there when they were setting up. Really professional and we’d definitely use you again. Thanks”Jessica & Elohim - Wedding, The Old Rectory, Hertfordshire

“Please pass on my thanks to all the guys from Festival Nights, I didn't get the chance to say it on the night, but they were absolutely brilliant. So many great comments from the guests who danced all night long! I hope they enjoyed themselves too, it certainly looked like they did! Best wishes,”Jess & Simon - Wedding, Brunswick House, London

“We wanted to say a huge thank you to the guys from Festival Nights.  The music was great and it was a really good mix of old rock and roll, folk and rock.  There was something for everyone and the dance floor was full all night.  They have an amazing energy and clearly love their job. They made our reception really special and we received lots of enquiries and compliments from the guests who thought they were refreshingly different from the usual wedding band!  Booking with you was easy. We were a little apprehensive about booking online without having met the band, or yourselves in person, but despite our fears, the guys showed up and they sounded even better in real life! Many thanks”Claire and Pras - Wedding, Marleybrook House, Kent

“Hiya Phoebe, Just want to say a massive massive thank you to Festival Nights, they were absolutely incredible!!!!!! They made our evening and were one of my favourite parts of the whole day!! Fun, talented and super nice...we are in love with them and so grateful they were able to play at our wedding! I could listen to their version of our first dance over and over. All our friends and family have commented on how great they were, at the evening and during the day. We couldn't have asked for anything more!! They even got a shout out in our guest book! Thanks also to DJ Gem for getting everyone up and keeping them there! the dance floor was packed all night. I think my 5year old flower girl sums it up best when she said to me (with a bright red face, at 10pm)...'I'm so hot but i just cant stop dancing!!!' Thanks so much for helping to arrange. Would not hesitate to recommend any of it! wonderful. All the best,”Hannah and Jeremy - Wedding, Birtsmorton Court, Worcestershire

“" Thank you for playing at Ross and Camilla’s wedding! You were a great addition to the celebrations and kept everyone dancing all night! A great time was had by all!"”Lynn (Mother of the Groom) - Wedding Thornton Manor, Wirral

“Dear Phoebe, I just wanted to thank you so much for everything over the weekend. Iain was fantastic - It was so helpful to have him there – he really acted as one of our team and the client was thrilled saying it was everything they imagined and wanted but better! I thought both the bands were terrific with a great energy about them and I especially appreciated enthusiastic positive attitude of every member. The dancefloor was always full which is a great sign and the first dance was very emotional (in a good way!). With Kindest Regards,”Victoria Dashwood Events Organiser at Bentley's Entertainment - Wedding, Shaftesbury, Dorset

Kind regards,”Jon Keswick (Father of Steph & now Father-in-Law of Adam - Wedding, Longstowe Hall, Longstowe, Cambridge (Festival Nights)

“Phoebe, The very least I can say is that everyone was blown away by the band. Even the managers of the venue commented on how good they were. The same comments were related to me about the soloist performance in the hall during drinks. Many people wanted to know contact details for them. Thank you very much, it really set the evening off properly after dinner.”Bruce Leatherman - Wedding, Thornbridge Hall, Ashford in the Water, Derbyshire,

““You guys are awesome!! What an amazing night xxx””Lizzie Robinson at Polly Maltby Wedding, Horningsea, Pavilion, Cambridge

“Hi Phoebe, We booked Festival Nights for our wedding having never watched them perform live, and we couldn't have been more pleased. With just two weeks preparation (due to our indecisiveness) they learnt how to perform our first dance song and they even prepared our second choice and both of them were spot on. We booked the solo option for the drinks reception which was fabulous and then the two evening sets. We had so many compliments on them and the guys, themselves, were really friendly and very accommodating to our poor timekeeping. They really surpassed our expectations and helped make our day and night so fantastic and memorable. I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking about booking, they had everyone up on the dance floor and were a truly class act (I don't think the YouTube videos I saw previously did them justice they were EVEN better)! We just wanted to thank them all they were AMAZING.”Holly and Matt Berry - Wedding, Chifneys, Great Maplestead, Halstead, Essex

“The Amazing Festival Nights! We cannot thank you enough for being a part of making our day so special - your efforts and attention to detail we re outstanding. You went above and beyond ti name sure that it was a stress free as possible and we truly couldn't have done it without you. Lots of love from the new,”Jade and Josh Connolly - Wedding, Broughton Hall, Broughton, North Yorkshire

“I just wanted you to pass on our thanks to the boys. They were truly amazing and everyone (young and old) commented on what a great band they were.”Holly Latham - Wedding, Chifneys, Great Maplestead, Halstead, Essex

“Hi Emma, Thanks so much for all your help – the band were great!!! Exactly what we wanted!! On behalf of my team, and Facebook, I’d like to give you and Festival Nights a massive thank you! This event was so important for us to get right; for so many reasons and your constant communication and quick responsiveness made me so much more at ease with everything. The professionalism and efficiency of the band and sound engineer onsite ensured that everything came together as planned. The band themselves were absolutely great – exactly what we wanted for the event. Everyone enjoyed the music so much and we got great feedback from our guests. Couldn't have asked for anything more and I can’t thank you all enough! Thanks!”Saba EMEA Events Manager for Facebook - Corporate Event, Soho Farmhouse, Chipping Norton

“Hi Phoebe, Thank you so much for getting in touch. We have nothing but fantastic things to say about our night. As soon as we got back from our activity the stage was all set up and ready to go, which was such a huge relief and it looked great! In terms of the band and the music, it was just amazing. I think we were all dancing from the first note of their first song, until they put their guitars and microphones away. (I apologise for some of the dancing the band had to witness!!) It was the perfect mix of current hits and classics, which is just what we asked for and we couldn't of been any happier with how everything turned out. Please pass on a huge thanks from both Laura and I to the band for their incredible performance, and hopefully we will be able to see them perform again in the future. Thank you so much as well for all your help leading up to the event. It was so nice knowing there was someone only an email away if we ever had any questions.”Jessie & Laura - Corporate, Bedford Lodge Hotel, Newmarket, Suffolk

“The guys were absolutely brilliant! We have had so many comments about them, they were so professional and the sound was just perfect. We liked it that they had a little dance in-between the live sets. I think I even saw them dancing the moves to Wigfield Saturday night! Great bunch of guys we would definitely recommend them.”Naomi Hampshire - Wedding, St Andrews Church, Didling, Nr Midhurst, West Sussex

“We had a fantastic wedding. The band were amazing and the guests couldn't praise them enough. Lee was wonderful in the ceremony and it really made the atmosphere special. They are such a lovely polite helpful bunch including the sound engineers. I had blisters on my feet from dancing all night. I would recommend them to anyone. Please send them my thanks and especially to Lee who learned the song for the ceremony.”Alison Sullivan - Usk Castle in Monmouth

“We had a great night! Could you tell the band and all production team that they were fantastic. It was a really good gig despite the weather.
