15 Best Musician and Band Websites Made With Qode Themes
By now it’s become indisputable that music and the Internet go hand in hand. Cassettes and CDs are, for the most part, a thing of the past. They have been replaced with streaming services and music platforms like iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp. This historical shift from physical to digital has left an indelible mark on the music industry. It has significantly changed the way music is marketed, but also how music websites are made.
To keep up with the expectations of an average fan and honor their need for instant gratification, almost all musicians now embed music players on their sites. They also connect their releases with popular online stores, create detailed album showcases, organize their music into playlists, embed YouTube videos, and connect their events pages to ticket sales websites. All of that is done to ensure the audience can complete most actions in as few clicks as possible on one site only (except for when they’re redirected to external ticket services) and prevent them from going elsewhere to find the content they’re interested in.
To ensure you can add all of these functionalities to your site effortlessly, we have created a stunning collection of premium music WordPress themes for all singers, bands, DJs, and music-related businesses. We will now introduce you to some of the best musician and band websites that have been created with Qode themes, demonstrating their beauty, flexibility, and functionality. The artists who have used our themes include:
The Prodigy website made with the Mixtape theme

They’ve embedded their Instagram account onto the homepage followed by a feed of photos tagged with #ProdigyTattoos. You can browse their extensive videography thanks to the practical YouTube embed. They’ve also displayed links to their social media profiles, including Facebook, VK, and Twitter. Thanks to Mixtape’s frame carousel shortcode, the website makers have been able to create an interesting shop preview with some of the available products, inviting you to explore them in greater detail by visiting the band’s official online store. One page has been dedicated to the late Keef Flint, the founding member of The Prodigy.
