Top 10 Best Sites

I feel like I had my musical awakening when I was about 15. It was the first time I’d heard the Beatles, and the song was “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” I was hooked after that.
Music is a big part of a lot of people’s lives, particularly in terms of dating. For example, I don’t want to say never, but it would be really hard for me to date someone who didn’t like the Beatles.
That’s where music dating sites come in handy, and we’d say the following seven will be music to your ears (and hearts).
Match is the most well-known dating site in the world, and that’s because it’s massive (42+ million users in 25 countries) and successful (more connections than any of its competitors). Of course, you can filter profiles by musical tastes, but you can also filter by so many other things, including age, city, gender, education, appearance, lifestyle, and religion.

“Meet people through music” is Tastebuds’ motto, and it works pretty much how you may think it would. Specify your favorite bands, songs, and/or genres, and get matched with people who feel the same way. Tastebuds has a really active user base, too, with users exchanging more than 1.4 million messages last month. Tastebuds has received a lot of praise, including from The Guardian: “If music be the food of love, Tastebuds is on to a winner.” One downside is the customer service, which is a little flaky and hard to reach.
“Finally, a dating app for music lovers” are the words that greet you on Mixd’s homepage, which you can download for free via the App Store. The Mixd team believes music connects us, so they’ve created a space that makes it even easier to do so. In addition to your traditional sign-up and matching processes, Mixd allows you to invite your matches to upcoming shows, events, and concerts.
A Sound Match strives to connect its users with a sound match (get it?), and to get started, you can take the site’s free three-minute quiz — which asks questions like “Do you make time in your life to listen to music?” and “Where do you listen to music?” The results will tell the site’s compatibility system who to match you with. You’ll also get a Music Personality Badge that you can display on your profile, other social platforms, emails, blog posts, and most other online mediums.
As you can probably tell by its name, UK Music Lovers specifically caters to music lovers in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. It doesn’t matter if you like rock, classical, rap, pop, country, or any other genre — you’re sure to meet like-minded people on this site. Free features include registering, browsing, and sending winks and messages. If you’re not sure how to get the conversation started, try one of UK Music Lovers’ free introductory icebreakers.
Planet Rock Dating is a great choice for those who love bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, Guns N’ Roses, and AC/DC. This free site cares just as much about you having fun as it does about you staying safe. Every profile is vetted by the team, and there’s an anti-scam system in place. If you want to “find someone who rocks your world,” we suggest Planet Rock Dating. Your profile could even show up in the Current Members section of the homepage.
Musician Friends Date promises that it will never charge you to register, browse profiles, receive matches, and communicate with other members. The whole site is mobile friendly, so you don’t have to download an app and take up precious space on your phone. You can find dates whether you’re at home or work, at a Starbucks or the gym, or anywhere else.
Maybe music shouldn’t be such a big deal in terms of dating. Maybe us music snobs should give people who think Farrah Abraham is a talented artist a chance. However, if you’re on the other side of that debate, like I am, the dating sites on this list are where you’ll want to go. Rock on!
