Question or Concerns


Once you’ve decided we’re the right band for your event, you will have a dedicated event coordinator at our agency Alive Network who will be on hand to liaise with you on any issues, questions or concerns. We’ll be in touch around 3 weeks before your event to run through the details and finalise any last minute arrangements.


What We'll Do At Your Event

Arrival, Set Up & Soundcheck

Riptide arrive in plenty of time to set up and get acquainted so as not to disturb anything on the day before we are due to play. Our equipment can be set up with ease and we will not take up excessive amounts of time to soundcheck, minimising any interference.

After Set Up

As soon as everything is set up, Riptide will play background music through our PA system, meaning that there will be music as soon as guests arrive and the evening has started.

First Live Set

As standard there will be two hour-long sets, this can be negotiated prior to the event. Timings will be negotiated beforehand so that we can try to avoid playing when people are eating etc. We will tailor our timings to your event specifically. Our live sets are energetic and respond to our audience throughout the night.

Second Live Set & End of the Night

Music usually ends at midnight, and as before this can be negotiated prior to the event. After our second live set, we will either provide our additional DJ service or ensure background music is playing while we quietly pack away.


If you have any other questions or would like to discuss things with us in greater detail, please feel free to get in touch with our agent, Nick at Alive Network on 0845 226 3177, who will be more than happy to discuss your requirements.
