Wix is arguably the world’s most popular website builder, hosting more than 7 million live websites. Musicians and bands looking to build a website can easily build a website to promote their music using it.
However, there are more than 800 designs in the Wix theme library. This can make it hard to select the right one for your needs, especially if you want to create a website that doesn’t look like other musicians’ sites. Even filtering by Music delivers 49 specialized themes.
To help you out, we’ve scoured the entire Wix template library to list the 10 best templates for musicians and bands who want to showcase their work.
Our #1 Wix template for musicians and bands is the aptly named Musician theme. It uses minimalistic design principles, and it boasts integrations with Wix Music and Wix Video to help you showcase your work.
In its base form, the Musician template has just one page, although you can add more if you would like to. At the top of the screen, you will find a list of icons linking to popular music streaming platforms, including Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, SoundCloud, and others. You can remove any of the ones that aren’t applicable and update the links to point people to your profile on each platform.
This theme also boasts built-in music and video elements that enable you to showcase a single song and music video. You can easily add extra elements if required.
If you’re looking for a simple design to showcase your work, Wix’s Musician template is certainly worth a look.
This Band theme is designed specifically for rock bands and musicians. It’s quite fleshed out and is best suited to established bands with a regular tour and/or performance schedule. It looks and performs great on mobile, which is essential since an estimated 55% of global web traffic is generated from mobile devices.
If you decide to use this design, you will find loads of pages and elements ready to go. There’s a media page that enables you to upload and, if you would like to, sell your titles. The Tour page enables you to detail upcoming performances, and the entire layout is attractive and easy to navigate.
It’s worth noting that, although this theme is designed for rock bands, it’s also a great option for musicians working in other genres—you just might have to make a few more edits to achieve the feel you want.
Wix’s DJ template is an excellent option for those who want to showcase and promote their music via their own website. While platforms like Spotify and Apple Music provide a streamlined way to monetize your tunes, they only pay well for artists with a large audience.
The DJ theme comes with built-in tools to help you sell your tunes without a middle man. You can offer previews or entire songs for free, and the homepage has a neat tour schedule widget. And don’t be fooled by the name. The DJ theme is great for all artists, not just DJs, as the name might suggest.
The Record Label template is designed for agencies and musicians with a large library of work. It’s very easy to use, and all you need to do is populate it with your own content and images.
The homepage has a neat grid format that enables you to visually showcase albums or songs. Agencies can use the Artists page as is while solo musicians or independent bands can adapt it to become an albums page for their own work.
The top right of the screen contains icons that you can link to your social media and streaming accounts. There’s even a neat news page that will help you keep your fans up to date.
With this Band template, you will get a load of great tools that you can use to keep your fans informed about everything to do with you and your music. You can add tour dates or shows to the built-in calendar. The homepage has a news widget that enables you to share specific updates, and there’s a music widget that you can use to showcase and sell your own tracks or albums.
Another thing we like about this template is the large header, which comes with a space for you to add an image of your band in action.
This country-themed template can be used by country singers, musicians, and artists alike. The Wix Music integration makes it super easy to share albums and songs. The homepage contains a list of icons that you can link to your socials and other accounts, along with a BIO section where you can tell your fans your story.
The font pairings here are also interesting, with blocky, simple styles. At the bottom of the homepage, you will find a section dedicated to sharing your upcoming events. You can even connect your Instagram account to add a bit of extra visual flair.
As well as the comprehensive homepage, you will also find bio, music, tour, and video pages where you can add more content and information. You can add extra pages, including a merch store, if you would like to.
This theme is a little different from the ones we’ve listed so far. It’s designed for small groups and artists who are available for event bookings. There’s a load of integrated booking tools, enabling you to take bookings directly from your website.
On top of this, the Repertoire page enables you to showcase your music. There’s a Wix Music integration that you can use to share favorite songs or renditions, and you can add links to your social media and streaming accounts.
You may find this theme simple, but it’s one of our favorites to use with booking integrations.
Another Band template, this one is designed more for folk, indie, and similar artists and singer-songwriters. It’s quite simple, and turning it into a masterpiece of your own is as easy as adding your own images and media.
The homepage of this template is simple, with a Listen to Our Music button, an email subscription field, and simple contact information. We quite like this, as it enables you to engage potential listeners with an eye-catching picture before directing them straight to your tunes.
Which, by the way, you can upload directly to the Listen page with the Wix Music integration. There are also tools for listing your tour dates, linking your socials, and providing more information about your band and what you do.
With the aptly named New Album Landing Page theme, you will find a range of tools that are designed to help you showcase your latest release. However, it’s certainly not limited to this, and it can be used by artists looking to take their entire library online.
This theme is a little bulky and grating at first, but it has a certain appeal that just seems to work. The Wix Music app enables you to quickly and easily upload your work to share for free or sell. You can add your tour dates, information about the band, and even share videos of you and/or your band.
Are you a musician with your own recording equipment who enjoys working with others? Or the owner of a recording studio? If you fall into either category, this theme is for you. Wix is one of the best small business website builders, and designs like this make things easy.
The homepage enables you to outline the services you offer, explaining why you think people should work with you. There’s a built-in booking button front and center, and you can list and provide more information about your equipment. There’s also a pre-designed Clients page that you can use as a portfolio, sharing your own music and the music of others you’ve worked with, as well as a Rates page that you can use to outline prices.
Selecting the best template for your new website can be difficult, especially if you want to create something like a niche music site to showcase your work. The Wix template library is huge, and selecting the right design can take forever.
Wix is right up there with the best website builders in the world, and with the right template, you shouldn’t have any trouble creating an attractive, highly functional website. But if you can't find a template to your liking, Weebly and Squarespace are also great options.
