    HEADLINER'S NEWCASTLE BANDS

    Newcastle is one of the most unique cities in the UK with a storied history and deep cultural roots. There is a wealth of activities including concerts, music festivals, and parades. Newcastle is cherished by locals and continues to be a popular destination for visitors looking to expand their boundaries.

    No matter the city you live in, large or small, people love to be entertained, and people in Newcastle know how to entertain.

    Whether a wedding reception, holiday party, 40th birthday celebration, 'Welcome Home' party, or a corporate event, good music and live entertainment can add tremendous fun and enjoyment to any affair – and local Newcastle bands can bring just that.

    Similar to any other city across the globe, more and more people in Newcastle are embracing and appreciating live musicians and the demand for such performances has increased.

    Although people are seeking this type of talent for their events, the challenge has been, for quite some time, figuring out how to find an available Newcastle band for hire.

    Sure, most musicians and entertainers are on social media, but unless they are constantly checking their profiles and emails, or having someone else do it, inquiries fall through the cracks. Not to mention delays in correspondences, miscommunications involving contract terms, or simply musicians not showing up.

    In other words, the effort necessary to book a musician or more specifically, to hire a band in Newcastle, had proven to be an overwhelming task.

    Nowadays, there are platforms like Headliner.io that have transformed the way musicians and live entertainers are found and booked.

    In 2015, three entrepreneurs, Maria Hayden, Stan Mcleod, and Rosario Garcia de Zuniga, noticed a void in the live entertainment niche and set out to fill it – a streamlined way to find London's (as well as other cities') best bands and hire them, regardless of the type of event.

    Maria Hayden and Stan Mcleod, a couple and long-time music industry pros, had a difficult time finding musicians that were suitable for their wedding day; in essence, Headliner.io was born out of frustration.

    Along with the combined expertise of Maria and Stan, Rosario's background in technology was the perfect fit to create an online venue for booking London's hottest live entertainment acts.

    Bringing together world-class musicians, bookers, and event professionals, Headliner provides a safe, intuitive, and simplified way to hire a band in Newcastle to suit any entertainment requirements.

    Live entertainment provides an enjoyable and festive ambience to events. Elegance and poised, energetic and over the top, or laid back and relaxed, local Newcastle bands listed on Headliner are committed to meeting the demands of attendees and performing to the best of their abilities.

    Those on the hunt to find a band need only to begin a search query on the Headliner search page.

    For easy viewing and booking, selected 'Artists of the week' are displayed on the search page. If not interested, bookers can enter their detailed event information under 'Refine Your Search' to receive relevant musician options.

    For instance, a booker looking to hire acts for a wedding reception could effortlessly use specific search filters to return results for 'Newcastle bands for weddings'.

    Offering deciding information such as customer reviews; musician bios; preferred event types; musical tracks, videos, and photos; genre specialization; instruments they play; and an availability calendar, bookers can access and view each musician's profile.

    From there, a profile can be saved to a wish list for later viewing or a free no-obligation quote can be requested, with a typical response time of 48 hours.

    One notable feature of Headliner is the strict vetting process, which includes quality-checking musician biographies, images, audio, and videos.

    Additionally, each musician is required to have or acquire public liability insurance.

    Once a booker decides to hire a band in Newcastle, the payment process is just as stress-free as initiating a search.

    If an act is booked within 45 days of an event taking place, the full amount is due. If more than 45 days away, a non-refundable deposit of 20% of the total fee is due, while the remaining 80% is payable 45 days before the event. Note - there are protocols in place for cancellation incidents, on the part of both the booker and the entertaining act.

    Aside from providing in-depth search and booking features, Headliner offers two exclusive customer-centric programs:

    • Reward Scheme – a referral program for frequent bookers to earn cash back or vouchers
    • "H" – Headliner's premium concierge service designed to connect agencies, event planners, and brands directly to global talent

    While there are many live entertainment booking sites, Headliner.io is unmatched.

    It's one of the most comprehensive and intuitive online destinations to find and book incredible musicians and live acts. From Newcastle bands for parties and weddings to festivals and product launches, Headliner prides itself on turning a good event into a great event by supplying the perfect musician(s) to entertain your guests.
