DDFK (Die Dorf Fest Kapelle) Oompah Band is the UK’s leading Oktoberfest party band. We have a wealth of experience and have travelled the world, performing at a wide variety of events, from the Oktoberfest at Clarke Quay in Singapore, to performing on stage with the amazing German Schlager superstar, Peter Wackel in Nürnberg! We are an extremely versatile oompah band and can tailor our show to suit your event. Whether you’re after traditional waltzes and polkas, German party schlager hits, well-known pop songs, or a mixture of everything, we will ensure that you and your guests enjoy an authentic Oktoberfest-style evening.


DDFK Oompah Band Fully Fronted Vocal Show

If you’re looking for the full Oktoberfest experience, then this is the option for you. It is perfect for beer festivals and any kind of Oktoberfest-themed party. We start the show with a selection of the most popular Schlager hits. These can include Olaf Henning’s ‘Cowboy und Indianer’, DJ Ötzi’s ‘Anton aus Tirol’ and our good friend Peter Wackel’s ‘Scheiss Drauf’. These are followed by some English hits that made their way to Munich, including ‘Hey Baby’ and ‘Living Next Door to Alice’. We then finish with some of our favourite songs that we know will fill the dance floor. We have a large catalogue of songs, and we are happy to take requests on the night, but if you have a specific song request, please let us know in advance and we will get it arranged for you.


DDFK Oompah Band Instrumental Strolling Show

Our instrumental show is a fantastic option if you’re looking for a fun-filled event, with plenty of upbeat party music, just without any vocals or a frontman. This works well for corporate events, as well as weddings and birthday parties. We will get right in amongst your guests (if that’s what you want!) and get everyone in the party mood. We’ll do our best to ensure that everyone is up dancing and singing by the end of the night. This is also a good option if set-up time is limited as we don’t normally use PA when strolling.

If you think you might like to book our instrumental show, but can’t quite imagine how it works, then why not come down and see for yourself at the wonderful bierkeller, Munich Cricket Club in London. We play there every Thursday and Saturday night, so drop us a message if you’re planning on coming down. We may even have a beer with you!


DDFK Oompah Band Entertainment Tailored to Your Event

We can also provide a more traditional strolling show, with German waltzes and polkas. This works well as background music during dinner functions and drinks receptions etc. If you’re after more of a mixture, do let us know and we will tailor our show to your event.

Whichever option you decide to go for, DDFK Oompah band is the perfect choice! Whether you’re holding an Oktoberfest-themed event, just looking for something a little bit different to surprise your guests, DDFK is your band! We are available to perform at public Oktoberfest events, beer festivals, birthday parties, weddings, stag parties, hen parties, corporate events, product launches, marketing and promotional events, commercial recordings and TV and film work. DDFK has had many TV appearances, including BBC 1’s ‘ The One Show ’ and ‘Comic Relief’.

Professional, friendly, patient, flexible.

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle were superb! They got our Oktoberfest really going with games, yodelling and great music! They were very energetic and created a really enjoyable and funny evening. One German guest even said “it’s just like bieng at home its so authentic!”

I just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank you so so much for being a part of our wedding reception at Trinity Buoy Wharf on 30th December.

It truly was incredible when the band walked in, and it really set the tone for the rest of the day. People haven’t stopped talking to us about how great you were.

We are awaiting the photos through from our photographer, but we will be sure to share these with you when they come through and please let us know if there is anywhere you’d like us to leave a review, as we would be happy to write one.

Exceptional entertainment.

Following Friday’s Oktoberfest at RAF Coningsby, I have been bombarded with messages praising the exceptional entertainment provided by the band Die Dorf Fest Kapelle. It was indeed a night to remember, though I hope to forget the hangover more quickly! 

On behalf of all who attended the function, I would be delighted if you could pass on my sincere thanks to the band members. Rest assured I will be highly recommending that they be booked for next year’s event as soon as date can be confirmed. I would like to thank you also for your support in finding and securing the booking.

One of my most memorable parties.

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle made my Dad’s 60th Birthday one of my most memorable parties. They were seamless and entertained a group of 70 strong party goers of varying ages. They were really friendly and I wouldn’t think twice about having them back in the future.

Our guests loved them!

Great fun with loads of positive comments from guests. And genuinely positive comments not just being polite. They loved them! I Would certainly recommend them without hesitation, the guests were falling off the benches with enthusiasm. I still keep getting positive comments and cards from friends!

They held everyone’s attention!

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle Oompah Band were a great addition to Northampton’s German Christmas Market for Dec 2014.
A fabulous combination of traditional oompah music, combined with Lady Gaga, The Pet Shop Boys, and a smattering of techno and disco….
The faces of the punters at the beer keller were a picture, as they realised just what they were dancing to..!..just great.
From beer supping officer workers on their lunch, to pensioners on shopping trips, they held everyone’s attention, with much smiling and dancing.
Great outfits, great musicianship, good times.

Brilliant night!

Brilliant night at Eaton Golf Club, thank you so much really enjoyed the evening, have a look at the Eaton Golf Club Facebook page I have posted tonight.

Great night!

Great night at Amherst School on Saturday night! Thank you! A perfect way to end my days in the PTA! Took the whole day yesterday (and a lunchtime curry) to recover though!

Definitely recommend to book again!

Everything was perfect. The Band performed very well and especially Geoff did a really good job in entertaining the crowd and he supported me in an amazing way. I am not running the event next year but I will definitely recommend to book this Band again next year. It couldn’t have been better and the guests enjoyed the evening very much….thanks again for your help. Take care!


This band are fantastic! They played at the RAF Northolt Bierkeller and were brilliant. So flexible to our needs and put so much energy in to the night. Great music, dancing and games, thank you!
