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)

I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?
Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.

Do you take requests?
We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

How long do you take to set-up?
90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

What time do you play?
At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.

How long do you play for?
We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

Can you provide music for our drinks reception?
Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute acoustic band set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

What is the website guide price based on?
The published guide price is based on our 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Canterbury. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?
We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?
2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?
Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.

Can we see you play live before booking?
As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
