• 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!

• Boys Of Summer Roaming Band - Fun, feel-good roaming performances with a full and upbeat sound!

5 stars - Dirty Weekend are Highly Recommended
booked Dirty Weekend for their event in East Sussex May 2024

“Dirty Weekend are just the best. They performed a great acoustic set when all the guests were having drinks and canapes and then absolutely rocked the dancefloor all night. It's the second time I've hired Dirty Weekend and hoping to work with them many times in the future as they are absolutely amazing. Highly recommend.”

Simply the best!

5 stars - Dirty Weekend are Highly Recommended
booked Dirty Weekend for their Wedding in Derbyshire April 2024

“We booked Dirty Weekend off the back of recommendations from guests who had experienced their talents at another wedding, and after listening to their sound on the website, it was a no brainer to book them for our wedding. The pre-wedding admin was a breeze, they are so easy to get on with and made life as easy as possible. On the evening, the quality of music and talent that came from the band was unrivalled, it was the best sound and the best quality, everything from start to end was so well put together, the only way to truly understand the enjoyment we had is to enjoy it for yourself! We can’t recommend these guys highly enough.”

Amazing Band, Fantastic Performance

booked Dirty Weekend for their event in Surrey December 2023

“Dirty Weekend performed at my husband's 40th birthday party and were incredible from start to finish. They helped us put together a great setlist, worked songs that we'd requested into the playlist between sets and then took the roof off with their performance. Would highly recommend!”

Really fantastic!

5 stars - Dirty Weekend are Highly Recommended
booked Dirty Weekend for their Wedding in Gloucestershire October 2023

“We thought the band were great, the set list was really good and they had an amazing range. The band learnt a song for me and also went the extra mile. They did a call with me prior to our wedding and had a really detailed sheet for us to fill out to make sure everything went smoothly which it did. I would highly recommend them.”
