Spain has always been a popular country for destination weddings – Mallorca, Zaragoza, Alicante, Cadiz, Barcelona, Basque Country and Málaga are particularly popular locations. The beautiful countryside, pleasant climate and excellent cuisine are just some of the factors that make Spain such a popular destination for tying the knot, especially with British and American couples.

Whether it be at a private villa in Andalusia, a luxury hotel on the Costa del Sol or at a rustic wedding barn in La Mancha, there are so many beautiful and unique wedding venues to choose from.

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

In general, couples who head to Spain 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 Spain.

Due to the demand for British cover bands to entertain at Italian weddings, some have relocated to the continent permanently. But several of FixTheMusic’s UK-based wedding bands are proving popular for destination weddings in Spain.

Of course, travel expenses mean that it can cost roughly double the price of hiring these bands to perform in the UK.

You can browse our UK-based bands that frequently travel to Spain for destination weddings, or make an enquiry and available musicians will get in touch with you.

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.
