How long does a DJ play?

This is flexible and completely depends on your wishes. Usually a DJ plays from 1 o'clock and usually up to 4 hours. However, it is also possible to employ a DJ for longer than 4 hours, for a wedding DJ for example. A drink and small snack are welcome!

Does the DJ bring in their own sound and lights?

Yes, in most cases we agree this way. Our DJs have a sound set that is suitable for a party for up to 150 people. This can also be expanded for larger numbers of guests. You can also hire it yourself if this is your preference. Often the cheapest option is to book this with the DJ. He or she is also familiar with the equipment that works well for him or her.

Can I give requests to the DJ?

Yes, this is possible. It is best to arrange this with the DJ before booking. Then he or she can ensure that the songs are beautifully incorporated into the DJ set. You can also provide a single request number on the evening itself, but we advise against doing this too much. This makes it more difficult to build the set properly.

What is included in the price?

Everything required for a successful performance is beach standard included. So the price is all-inclusive and there are no additional costs. Included are:

  • Screened, professional entertainment
  • Money back guarantee
  • Travel expenses
  • VAT

  • Online wish list
  • Personal event manager
  • 24/7 customer service
  • Assembly and disassembly (if required)
  • Light and sound technology (if required)
  • Other necessary equipment (if required)
How is the price determined?

The price mainly depends on the following factors:

  • The desired duration of the performance
  • Travel time and travel costs
  • Any lighting and/or sound technology required
  • Any waiting and preparation time
  • The group size
  • Familiarity of the act.

Ultimately, every party is unique. Therefore, we are happy to discuss your requirements in advance and can make an appropriate tailor-made proposal.
