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 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 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 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.

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?

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.

DJ Rique made the party at our daughter's wedding and reception! His professionalism, flexibility, work quality and value are above and beyond. He met with us for a walkthrough of the day a few weeks before and arrived several hours early, before the ceremony, to set up and to make sure everything was perfect. My son-in-law is from Colombia and being able to have a bi-lingual event, and DJ Rique's knowledge of multiple genre's of music, made the evening fun for everyone in attendance! We danced and salsaed the night away and DJ Rique kept the party going until the end. Thank you for being a part of our daughter's special day!

DJ did a great job in spite of the fact that it poured down rain and set-up locations had to be changed. He took everything in stride, which made less stress on me.

DJ LK did a fantastic job at my daughter's sweet 16 party. He showed up early to have everything set up and ready to go by the time the party started and he kept the people engaged throughout. He was very flexible and was able to honor all of my daughter's special requests and make this an unforgettable night. I am very pleased with the job Kevin did and would hire him again in the future.

DJ Insomnia was a great choice for our daughter’s 16th bday party! He was very professional & worked with all of us to ensure the party was lively. He worked with the playlist & helped pump up the crowd at the perfect time. He maintained the perfect volume level since the party was on our backyard & he even brought lights. The kids loved him, as did we. Overall, working with him was a wonderful decision & we definitely recommend him for your next event. We would hire him again in a heartbeat.
