Most musicians and bands have a dedicated focus on building a strong brand and I large tribe of fans. Having a great fan or band website design is critical these days, so people can go online and find general information, pictures, event calendars and tracks. It is also important to link it up to social media websites like Facebook and twitter, as this is where a lot of the conversation is taking place.
This article is a collection of cool band website designs you can use as inspiration for designing your own or a client’s music website layout. Many of the website created for musicians are unique and use strong colors and many images with a lot of activity. They have quite complex designs with news-feeds, video and music players etc. Other artists have decided to go 100% commercial and use web channel more or less as a sales page. I hope you find this resource inspiring and that you will share it with your friends.
