In 1886, some musically motivated citizens founded the first wind band in the small village of Dudelange. Although this band was dissolved 9 years later mainly due to financial reasons, it is still considered to be the base for what is known today as the Harmonie Municipale de Dudelange. On the 11th July 1896, this band was resurrected under the name of Musik-Gesellschaft Düdelingen (music company of Dudelange). With the rise of the steel industry, a few years later, on the 4th August 1907, Dudelange had more than 1000 inhabitants and therefore was declared city of Dudelange; at the same time, the band was renamed to Harmonie Municipale de Dudelange (HMD, Wind Band of the city of Dudelange).
