DIY or DJ hire?

Posted by Stephen Hall on 30 June 2015 | 0 Comments

Music is essential for the majority of events, whether it is there to encourage people to dance and have a good time or in the background to help set a scene. Whatever the occasion, great music can really make the event. When it comes to organising a special occasion or big event, one of the biggest decisions you'll need to make is to hire a DJ or go for a DIY option.

Taking care of the music yourself gives you control over the whole soundtrack but it is one more job you'll need to see to. You'll have to commit a lot of time to it during the event, even if you have put the work in to create a playlist in advance. You also need to make sure you have the right equipment in place; without specialist DJing equipment, you could leave your guests with music that is too quiet or very low quality.

Hiring a DJ provides a huge number of benefits including giving you a professional to oversee the whole affair. They should have access to a vast catalogue of music so you don't need to rush around trying to find the right tracks. You can give the DJ instructions and they will create the right kind of soundtrack for your event, incorporating all of the songs you want and filling the gaps with similar tracks. Additionally you can ask them about their equipment and ensure it meets your needs.

One thing to remember is that a DJ will offer other benefits alongside simply putting music on. They are there to entertain your guests and get them involved. To do this they will keep an eye on the crowd and ensure they play the kind of music that will be received best. You can't do this if you're just putting a playlist on that you have made in advance because you don't know how the event will be going on the night.

The DIY path can work for many events but for larger ones where music is essential there is no substitute for hiring a DJ. It is also the best option if you have limited time or will be needed during the event to host and make your way around greeting guests.
