Attention all music lovers, now that you’ve found the one who moves to the same beat it’s time to share your passion for music internationally! We have put together some of our top recommendations for music lovers looking to indulge on their honeymoon.


How could we share a honeymoon for music lovers and not include Memphis? Memphis is arguably the music capital of the world and holds so much history of our music greats. Start your trip by ticking a few things off the bucket list like a visit Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, and watch a concert at the Orpheum Theatre.

Take a tour of the famous Sun Studio and learn about the early days of artists like Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. Stand in their footsteps and you might even have the chance to hold one of their microphones which are still on display today.

Top off your night at Earnestine and Hazel’s famous dive bar. Earnestine and Hazel’s has featured in 9 movies since opening in the 90’s and is full of music history. The catch is, it’s rumoured to be one of the most haunted places in America which really adds to the entertainment as there’s even a ghost tour on offer.

Combine your love for music and the sea and check out some of the festivals Sixthman has on offer. Since 2001 Sixthman have been operating cruises that aren’t your average cruise. You’ll be able to see some of your favourite artists performing live – which in the past has included John Mayer, KISS, Pitbull, Train and more! You’ll also have the opportunity to interact with artists both while at sea and in port.

Current ports include New Orleans, Miami and Barcelona, to list a few. There’s heaps of amazing festivals to choose from which all vary in location, artists, as well as cruise length. In 2019 expect to see some new locations announced as Sixthman heads to Europe. Why not check them out online and book in for your honeymoon!

Traditional music experiences

Of course there are more traditional experiences you can find all over the world. Take guitar lessons in Spain, book a private gondola ride in Venice and be serenaded with classical music or why not see your favourite musical live at a West End Broadway show in London?!

Viator has a range of musical experiences on offer tailored to all demographics. You’ll even find Hip Hop tours in New York, as well as musical ventriloquist comedy in Boston. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on Viator, Airbnb also list a range of activities including private shows, where you can really take it all in.

There’s so many beautiful places across the globe each with their own musical history, so where will the beat take you?

Ms Zebra Says: Planning a honeymoon can be such a difficult decision – but having music as the focus can make everything easy to plan – and listen to! There’s nothing better than live music, so why not plan a honeymoon centred around it?! Thanks to our travel writer Bec Lawrence for her insider tips!
