Building a musician or band site

A musician or band site connects you with your fans, shares music, displays tour dates, and more. This guide highlights great starting points for bands or musicians and explores Squarespace's features for uploading music, connecting social media, and establishing an online musical identity.

Start with a musician or band design

While all Squarespace sites have the built-in design tools to make a unique, striking musician or band site, you may want to start with a design from the Musicians & Bands category of the template store. These music-centered designs showcase your music and help fans find tour dates and order merch.

To get started, visit the template store and select Musicians & Bands in the menu on the left. This filters the designs to only show music-focused templates. Click Preview on any design, or click Start With to create a new site using that design.

Share songs

You can share individual tracks on your site by uploading them to Audio Blocks. These blocks appear as a customizable player, and you can add them to any content area on your site. This is a great option for showing off new singles, remixes, or other audio files.

You can also use SoundCloud Blocks to embed tracks or playlists from your SoundCloud directly to your site. This ways, visitors can listen to your SoundCloud content without leaving your site.

Sell merch

You can sell t-shirts, albums, digital downloads, posters, and more using Squarespace Commerce features. Visit our Commerce overview to get started.

List gigs and tour dates

Use an Events Page to list upcoming shows, tours, appearances, and more. After you've added events, you can showcase these events elsewhere on your site, such as your homepage, using a Summary Block or Calendar Block

If you use Bandsintown, you can add a Bandsintown Block to your page or events.

Connect your social media and streaming pages

Link to your social media pages by connecting your social accounts. You can then display icons for these social platforms in your site header or a Social Links Block. If your music is available on streaming service, you can add icons to your pages on iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify. 

Next steps

Your site can be as unique as your music, so this is just the start. Add music videos with a Video Block, show concert photos with gallery sections, or document tour life in a blog. Visit our Getting Started video series to learn more.
