Hiring a Band for Destination Weddings in Dubai – A Short Guide

Dubai is one of the most popular locations in the Middle East for destination weddings, and for good reason.

The long, sandy beaches, pleasant climate and numerous luxury hotels are just some of the factors that make Dubai such a hotspot for tying the knot, especially with British and American couples.

When it comes to hiring a live wedding band in Dubai, it can be difficult to find exactly what you want for your special day.

In general, couples who head to The United Arab Emirates for a destination wedding want a band that plays covers of British and American pop, rock and indie music (as well as some funk and soul thrown in for good measure). As such, British wedding bands are increasingly in demand to make the journey to entertain at destination weddings in Dubai.

Due to the demand for British cover bands to entertain Dubai weddings, some have relocated to the city permanently – for example, one of our bands who plays a mix of pop, rock and indie covers, consists of British musicians from London but they are now based in Dubai where they entertain at weddings and parties throughout the Middle East.

Several of FixTheMusic’s UK-based wedding bands are proving popular for destination weddings in Dubai. Of course, travel expenses mean that it can cost roughly double the price of hiring these bands to perform in the UK.

On FixTheMusic, bands always provide quotes directly to you with a clear breakdown of costs so you can make an informed decision – no other costs are added, and once you’re happy to book, you can pay securely online via card.

Wedding bands on FixTheMusic have public liability insurance and PAT tested equipment.

FixTheMusic is free for event planners to use – the price you agree with musicians is the price you pay. There are no costs added on top and 0% booking fees.
