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.

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.

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?

DJ Fest Music E. did a Fantastic!!! job playing my favorite music on my b-day party. Dj Juan and his Partner got everyone on the dance floor making my guests enjoying, dancing and having such a great night. I really appreciate them being very flexible, affordable and honest guys just to mention some of their attributes. Their set up and lightning was spectacular also. Thank you Dj Fest Music for making my birthday party as I wished.

I had never hired a DJ before, so I had no idea what to expect or what I should be doing. DJ Ivan S made the process incredibly easy and was very understanding about the nature of my wedding reception. On the day of the event, he showed up on time and ready to go. My guests had a blast dancing to his mix, and he even incorporated many of the songs my husband and I had requested. I also appreciate that he respected our "No Play List", and was there to help with announcements as requested. I had no schedule, so his flexibility and professionalism throughout the evening were greatly appreciated. The guy had a smile on his face, was very friendly and understanding, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. My husband and I are already considering hiring him again to DJ at future events. Hire DJ Ivan S, you WILL NOT regret it!

We couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our big wedding day than Charlie!! He knows what he is doing! Very patient, passionate, and super helpful! We asked for certain songs to be played at certain times and he did it! We had him for our wedding ceremony and reception, music came out AMAZING! We made a lot of big changes the morning of the wedding he was more than happy to help, and support our last minute decisions. He makes you feel very comfortable, wedding guest loved his services, so did we! We will sure call Charlie again for a next big event! It won't be the last time we see him!
