About

Break out the banjo's and get set for a big old barn dance! Festival Folk are here to bring their roots-driven, Mumford & Sons style sound to bare on all your favourite hit tunes. A fun-filled, unforgettable addition to your festival themed wedding or high end corporate function.

Festival Folk are one of the countries most popular entertainment solutions for the festival-themed wedding, and it truly isn't hard to see why. They take their incredible plethora of musical talent and use it to sculpt two sets of captivating live music: The first takes a stunning selection of songs spanning four decades and offers them up with a whole new Folk driven spin; compete with banjo, double bass and soaring vocal harmony. For the second set, they go hard and loud with a blistering indie-rock set filled with your favourite festival tunes. Complete with stunning production, an on-site sound engineer, complete PA and lighting set-up, two hours of live music and a disco/DJ set provided as standard, every single aspect of your evening's entertainment will be covered. All's that's left for you to do is dance into the early hours with the people you love!

The band is assembled from four of the country's most prestigious session musicians, with a collective resume that is simply mind-blowing. Between them, their studio credits include Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Roachford, Kylie Minogue among many others. They have shared the stage with acts ranging from The Rolling Stones to Hot Chip, at world renowned venues such as The o2, Hammersmith Apollo, Royal Festival Hall and The Barbican. Their lead singer, Jamie, was previously signed to U.K. major label Island Records, and members of the band have performed live on US hit TV shows including Smallville, Charmed and The Late Late Show.

As standard we provide:

  • Sensational professional band, with awesome live show
  • Two hours of incredible live music
  • Set list full of upbeat classic dancefloor fillers from 60s to current chart
  • Professional PA, sound engineer, stage lighting and pre-mixed disco before & after live sets (so your whole night of entertainment is covered)
  • PAT tested equipment and Public Liability Insurance (your venue will require the band to have this)
  • Your choice of first dance performed

“I know from experience that it’s difficult to choose a band for an important occasion, particularly one you don't get to see in person. But not only are Festival Folk superb in the promotional video but they sounded exactly the same (if not better!) in real life!”Mr & Mrs Garrett - Wedding, Old Kent Barn, Kent

“I want to just say a big thank you to Festival Folk for making our big day so special. Everyone commented on how brilliant the band were and loved the different styles of music they played from the acoustic set outside in the afternoon to the full on party hits in the evening!”Toni & Ben Marshall - Wedding, Eastwell Manor, Kent
