You have the perfect location, just the right decoration, a wonderful photographer, and the best lighting. What are you forgetting? Any event is incomplete without the hint of background music to enhance even the dullest of parties!


The right DJ will not just provide the notes of music but elevate your entire event. In light of a DJ’s irreplaceable contribution to an event, it is surprising how much people delay in finding and booking a DJ for their event.


With little time left, the task of finding a suitable DJ can be tough, to say the least. After all, you’re not just paying for the DJ, but their equipment, timing, and experience. If that got you panicking (and rightfully so), we will provide you the top tips to hire a DJ to calm your nerves before your upcoming event!


1. Book a DJ Based on Your Event


The first thing to consider when hiring a DJ is the kind of event you are hosting. Is it a wedding party, a business event, or a school event? You should look for DJs that specialize in your area, whether that is a wedding DJ or a school DJ. If you are looking for a wedding DJ, a DJ that works in a club or has more experience with other types of events may not be the right fit for you.


Hence, it is important to begin your search with a clear idea of the kind of DJ you want. If you are sourcing the work to an event company, you will need to inform them of the details of your event so they can make an informed decision tailored to your needs.

2. Experience


Experience is indispensable when it comes to hiring a DJ. Your event is definitely not the time to experiment with amateurs so even if you have to pay the extra bucks, it will be well worth the while (and not just as an added alliteration!) The best way to go about this is to ask your DJ of prior references and events that they have played at.


An experienced DJ will know the works better, how to keep guests engaged, and the genre of music to play according to the event. A veteran DJ will also exude more confidence and the ability to lead an event when need be. Since most professional DJs might be booked well in advance, don’t leave the job of finding a DJ to the very last minute!

3. Meet your DJ Beforehand


A common mistake people make is the reliance on recommendations and forgetting to meet with the DJ before the event when it is too late to do anything about it. Please do not wait for any unpleasant surprises at your event!


It is advised that you meet the DJ you are hiring prior to the event to share your demands, give the DJ an idea of what you want, and set clear expectations:



  • Any specific playlist you want to be played

  • The level of control you want to give the DJ

  • Whether the DJ will allow your guests to come on stage and use the microphone

  • If the DJ needs to act as a coordinator and make announcements


When both parties are on the same page, chances of success double up.



Finding a DJ is an easy task only if you begin well in advance. The musical element is of paramount importance, so ensure you incorporate the following tips to hire the right DJ for your event.
