Additional Upgrade Options
We love doing something a little different, and wherever possible we will do whatever we can to accommodate special requests without additional costs to you. However, we do also offer some excellent add-on options. Please see booking options for more details.

• Learn additional song/s - Sometimes a first dance just isn't enough. Perhaps there’s a song that’s special to your parents, the track that was the anthem to the whole stag weekend, or the song that all the hens can’t stop singing every time they meet up. Dirty Weekend will learn and perform one or two additional tracks at your event, allowing you to choose up to 3 songs including your complimentary first dance request.

• The acoustic tent - No festival would be complete without the acoustic tent, and every wedding needs a little chill-out time in the early afternoon. Dirty Weekend will arrive early at your event and provide a 45-minute set of dreamy acoustic pop classics, chilled Live Lounge-esque re-imaginings and summer time vibes. 4pm arrival as standard.

• An additional festival set - Marriage may be about compromise, but on your wedding day you need to get your own way! If you just can’t decide between all the great festival sets, you can add an additional 40-minute performance. No early arrival time will be necessary here, timings can simply be arranged on your 3-week call.

• The Big Tamale - Maybe you're the kind of couple who can’t get enough live music. Maybe you need it all! Dirty Weekend will arrive early to perform an acoustic set, and then follow it up with FIVE 40-minute live sets! This option includes a 1am finish, which will normally be required just to fit in all that live music!
