Top DJ related questions

Depending on your budget and the DJ you hire, you may be able to get more than just music. Common extras include lighting, smoke machines and photo booths. If you want to keep costs down, you can request that they do not include these services.
Yes, most DJs will allow you to play certain songs or specific genres, but remember that you are hiring them for their expertise and they are more than just a jukebox. Some DJs specialise in certain music types, so check before you hire someone that they have a wide range in the type of music you're looking for.
Most DJs will have all their own equipment, but it's always best to check before you hire someone. At the very least, they’ll need access to a power point and, depending on the length of the party, may require a meal as they’ll be unable to take a break to eat.
It’s not impractical to give the DJ a dress code so that they fit in with the formality or theme of an event, however it’s best to give them plenty of notice for such requests.
If your party is going well, most DJs will be happy to extend how long they work. This may require payment when you make the request, but if they are booked elsewhere afterwards, they won’t be able to accommodate this request.
The price of DJ hire can vary greatly depending on how long you need them, if there’s much travel involved and if you want extras such as lighting. On Airtasker, the average price for DJ hire is between $180 and $365.

What do DJ services include?

DJ services include all the activities necessary to provide professionally mixed music that you and your guests can enjoy dancing to at your event or establishment. This can include hiring a DJ for a party, a mobile DJ, or even one specifically for the disco venue. In some cases, your hired Tasker may also perform some hosting duties upon request. 

Planning the playlist

When meeting with your DJ to discuss details of their performance, they can suggest a playlist composed of the appropriate tracks. If you want a retro theme for your event, your Tasker may offer to use a series of dance hits from the ‘80s and ‘90s. You can pick from their playlist and ask for your favourite songs to be included in the mix.  

Discussing the event program

Apart from making the playlist, your Tasker can discuss your event program and do some hosting duties upon request. They can announce when parts of the program are about to begin, introduce guest speakers when appropriate, present guests, and inform guests when it’s time to hit the dance floor! 

Be sure to share your guest list and inform your Tasker on how to pronounce any complicated names. Don’t forget to hire a cleaner for the venue after your event!  

Playlist demonstration

Once you’ve agreed on a playlist, your Tasker can share a sample mix. They may send a physical copy via courier like a CD or USB drive or provide you with a link to download the files. This is helpful when the playlist may have songs you aren’t familiar with, and you’d like to hear how your Tasker makes transitions between songs. 

You can comment and suggest any changes for the transitions, track length, mix length or song sequence. 

Your Tasker can implement the changes within a reasonable amount of time, then share the revised cut. This process can repeat until both of you are satisfied with the final product. Your Tasker may ask to visit your venue so they can test and make sure their equipment is compatible with your sound system. 

Performing at your event

You can expect your Tasker to arrive at the venue a reasonable time before your event starts. They can arrive early to set up their booth, get dressed in the appropriate outfit and connect their equipment to the venue’s sound system. If you contract them to do so, they can do hosting duties and signal the start of your event. 

They may play a short track to introduce guests or guest speakers when appropriate. By the time your event closes, and it’s time for your guests to party, your Tasker can open the dance floor and proceed to mix songs. They can mix songs live and continue until the party officially ends as well. Feeling overwhelmed? For extra help in setting up the party, you can definitely hire separate Taskers.
