The Festival Pack are an acoustic band with a difference. Combining two guitars, percussion, double bass & saxophone, they offer a fresh delivery of live music through their arrangements of classic songs and modern hits with a warm feel good ‘Mumford & Sons’ style throughout each performance. Originally gigging as a duo, the musicians expanded by teaming up with their professional percussionist, double bassist & saxophonist to create the full band and haven’t looked back since.

The Festival Pack musicians have performed in countless function bands on stages worldwide, plus TV appearances, tours, and session work for major music label artists. After countless gigs within different bands, the lads decided to collate their musical skills and experience, and form one solid line-up to deliver powerful sets at every performance.

From their wealth of experience, The Festival Pack know what songs work best live and which numbers will bring your guests to the dancefloor or get them singing if they are performing their roaming sets. What’s more, by carefully constructing setlists with numbers from different decades, we make sure that guests of all ages enjoy the performance.

The walkaround / roaming option

We love this style of performance. We will walk to different tables or groups of guests and play numerous mini sets for your different guests to enjoy. We can tailor the songs we play for each specific group we perform to; and make sure everybody gets a personal performance of songs they will love to singalong to. This is the perfect choice if you want to show your guests a performance with a twist and it works well for any feel good event be it a wedding, party, corporate event or otherwise both indoors and outdoors. Also available with saxophone in this option.

Adaptability for all events

Whether you’re planning a wedding, private party or corporate meeting, The Festival Pack can provide the perfect soundtrack to your event, bring people to the dancefloor and create a warm feel good vibe for your guests.

The Festival Pack perform at all sorts of events and can play and dress accordingly. With up to five instruments playing together, its very easy for the band to play a more relaxed set or a more lively one, so no matter whether you’re hosting a black tie dinner or an informal birthday party, you can be confident that the band will look sound and look the part for your event.

Acoustic Duo Set Available

Thinking of also hiring an acoustic duo at your event to get things started? Our band members all began their gigging careers as duos so this is very comfortable territory for them and they always deliver another top-class performance.

As the musicians will be heading to your venue for the full band performance, we can add on our acoustic duo consisting the two guitarists/vocalists from the band to the schedule very easily. Plus we offer to do so at a nice affordable bolt-on price. Perfect at the start of your event, over afternoon drinks, during a dinner or even within a wedding ceremony.

Song choice

The Festival Pack draw on their experience to know which songs work best live for different events. Once your booking is confirmed we’ll ask you if our plan suits (eg for a wedding - we play feel good fun tracks for all ages to help brides and grooms celebrate their big days with a big party!). We know the tracks that will go down a storm. At the event itself, The Festival Pack use their experience to create a slightly organic setlist so that if your guests are particularly enjoying a rock n roll number from the 50s for example, and the dancefloor is heaving - we will often play another one straight off to keep your guests on their feet. The Festival Pack musicians’ high level of skill and musicianship allows them to adapt setlists this way & this is one of many factors that has helped them build a solid reputation as a hard working band.

Professional Sound and Visual Image

The Festival Pack only perform with top of the line audio equipment & instruments. Brands of instruments and audio equipment used include Gibson, Fender, Faith, Tanglewood, Boss, Tama, & Zildjian (& that’s just for starters).

Get the perfect band treatment on your special day

The Festival Pack pride themselves on customer satisfaction to make sure that your special day runs as smoothly as possible no matter what the event. From their first contact with you leading up to your event, the band leader for your event will check the all-important details to start locking down everything they need to know to make the live music at your event a complete success.

Band Size

The Festival Pack can downsize to a trio with two guitars and percussion, delivering a relaxed feel, or be upgraded to a 5 piece band with the addition of a Saxophone, for the full band experience!

Rachel Metcalfe, Bride, Wedding, They were absolutely brilliant at our wedding last Saturday. They played the first dance song of our choice perfectly, and a good mix of old and new songs to get the guests dancing. The band were quick to respond to any questions before the day, and nothing was too much trouble to make sure the day was perfect. Thank you so much for making our day special!

Chris & Diana, Bride & Groom The Festival Pack were absolutely fantastic, they had everyone at our wedding up and dancing and they played our first dance - which was a request song - beautifully. We've had so many lovely comments about them. Tom and the band were really relaxed and easy to work with which was a blessing in the run up to, and on the day of, our wedding. Thanks for helping to make our day so special!

Mandy & Jasper, Bride & Groom, Wedding We can't thank you guys enough for agreeing to make the trip to Italy to play at our wedding.

All our guests have been saying how much they loved "the band" and it was your music that really set the mood for both the ceremony and the party!!!! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Chris Locke-Wheaton, Groom, Wedding The Festival Pack surpassed all our expectations, they were brilliant. They played a great mix of upbeat songs and had everyone dancing. They are a great group of guys and they looked like they were enjoying themselves as much as we were. Their set-up was great (lighting etc), they set their sound levels perfectly and their vocals were fantastic. We could not have asked for a better way to end the evening. They even let us play our own playlist through their equipment during their breaks.
