Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

How do you find wedding DJs?

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?

It was great having DJ Hife for our event. He was very personal and accommodating to how our event was coordinated. Music was on point and played to the crowd. What got the party going was when DJ Hife gave the crowd glow sticks and party poppers. Overall I would highly recommend DJ Hife to anyone who’s looking to have a great time at their event! Thanks DJ Hife!

Excellent service. There were slight hiccups that came from the venue but DJ Notion was there on time with an excellent service and the event was a success. The music selection was a hit with the students and the event went amazingly well. We had requested an interruption in the middle of the set to make an announcement and that part had no issues. Once the announcement went out, the party continued. Overall, DJ Notion provided an excellent service and we would 100% recommend anyone who is looking for a DJ to choose DJ Notion.

DJ Mike was very kind, professional, and responsive in our communication. He also has really great pricing and we were very close in booking him, but decided to go with another DJ that had a specific lighting set up that we wanted. That being said, I would recommend DJ Mike to any of my and friends and family for their events.

DJ Hife, was incredible. From Set-up to execution of the event. Everything was great. The set-up was amazing, sound quality was perfect and the lights we beyond our expectation. His choice in music got our residents dancing and having a great time. He really provided a night club feeling experience on our pool deck and we could not of wished for a better Dj. Our resident are still talking about how great the event was, and this is mostly down to the professional and entertaining DJ set from DJ Hife.

We hired DJ Vallas to perform at a large-scale concert at the Staples Center, with sold-out seats. He delivered exactly the performance we'd agreed upon, providing a fluid experience at a super-competitive price! He's a very dependable DJ.
