Oktoberfest is an eighteen day festival held annually in Munich. It has evolved into the worlds biggest beer festival and is visited every year by six million people from around the world for it’s unique and lively atmosphere which incorporating music , food and fun fairs.
The past decade has seen the Oktoberfest theme adopted by many venues and councils in the UK. The popular Beirkeller chain of city centre venues have taken elements of Oktoberfest into their weekly offer of Oompah bands , disco’s , food and drink. There has been a big growth in outdoor Oktoberfest style events in towns and cities up and down the UK where the offer of music , food and drink is often accompanied by fun fairs and skating rinks.
It is fair to say that Oktoberfest has entered British culture and provides a welcome excuse to party in the that fallow period between the end of Summer and Christmas.
Because of the popularity of events during October there is a definite shortage of quality Oompah Bands during this period. Many of the best Oompah bands are booking to work in Munich in order to cope with the high demand during October. Many others are rebooked every year for the same October events.
Live Music Management have a large number of quality Oompah bands on our books but in addition to this we also have really good jazz musicians who can put together bespoke acts based on the Oompah band theme or as street style performers. This puts Live Music Management www.lmmuk.co.uk in a perfect place to fulfil last minute engagements for Oompah style entertainment at a time of year when the options for un-booked acts is slim.
For smaller events considering an Ooompah Band or Bavarian Oktoberfest theme Live Music Management are able to offer party DJs who will play a mix of party tunes and key Oktoberfest favourites.
Oktoberfest began in Munich in the early 1800s. It’s popularity grew over the next two hundred and so years to its present status where it attracts visits not only from across Germany but also from around the world. The Oktoberfest in the UK really only began in earnest around ten to fifteen years ago but every year it seems to get more popular.
