Matters Musical: experts in festival entertainment

At Matters Musical, we know festivals. For almost 30 years, we’ve helped festival organisers and bookers create stunning line-ups of festival bands and acts to delight, fascinate and entertain the most discerning of festival audiences.

From intimate classical music festivals to big international festival stages, specialist world music events to local council music in the park, we help festival planners and programmers put together an irresistible playlist of festival music and dance that gets the box office website busy from day one.

Why choose Matters Musical for your festival music acts?

We ensure every act we suggest is of the highest professional standards, featuring renowned players who perform authentic music on the very best instruments.

We only suggest acts that offer exceptional entertainment value for your festival, the kind of performers that grab the audience’s attention and leave them cheering for more at the end of their set.

Book something rather special

We have a ‘black book’ of speciality acts that offer something original, different or unique. From fusion acts blending live music and DJs, to acts created from innovative marriages of performance art and musical styles.

What’s more, if you can imagine it, we can probably create it - see our bespoke entertainment section for more details of unique acts created by us for specific clients.

A complete service for your festival

Whatever your festival type, we can help. Just tell us your venue or set-up and your dreams, and we’ll do the rest, drawing together a tempting selection of excellent artists and acts to choose from.

Once you’ve made your choice, we’ll liaise closely with your production team to ensure the logistics all make sense and everything is perfect on the day(s). We’ll send you one invoice, so you can pay us and not worry about multiple payments to a myriad of artists and bank accounts. We’ll even brief the artists so they know exactly what to expect, and what’s expected of them.

So all you need to do is relax, enjoy the show, and bask in the reflected glory!
