Dirty Weekend are a 4-piece band. Their default lineup is:
The boys in Dirty Weekend have been to the biggest and best music festivals in the world, and have even been lucky enough to play at some of them! Knowing firsthand that there is no better feeling than being surrounded by your closest mates whilst watching world-class live music, this band is designed to capture a little of that summer-time festival flavour and bring it your event!
The premise is simple: the band offer 5 different 40-minute sets, each based on a different classic festival. All you have to do is choose your favourite 3 festival sets for your event. If you want even more live music, you have the option to increase the number of sets, including an optional acoustic set designed specifically for summer wedding afternoons with canapés and drinks.

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 two additional songs - Sometimes one 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 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 5 x 40-minute live sets - our entire repertoire in one night! This option includes a 1am finish, which will normally be required just to fit in all that live music!
