How much is a DJ for 4 hours ?
How much is a DJ for 4 hours ? A professional DJ would usually charge a minimum of no less than £50 per hour so £200 for 4 hours although that price is based on the average rate of today’s market for mobile DJ’s, so I would only assume this to be correct for a local party DJ as some mobile DJ’s and club DJ’s may charge considerably more depending on the type of event they may be required to attend.
Different types of DJ’s
When it comes down to the different types of DJ’s this is when the amounts start to change and you would need to seek DJ quotes depending on your requirements as a club DJ may want a different rate compared to a mobile DJ, wedding DJ or even a kids disco.
The cost of a wedding DJ
Lets start off with a whats the cost of a wedding DJ ? which can be anywhere from £200 for 4 hours up to £1000 for 4 hours, now everyone knows a wedding is a very special occasion so I see a lot of people opting for the best service they can get for their wedding as no one really wants to take a chance with a inexperienced DJ on one of the most special days in your entire life although you do get the some people who don’t have a great wedding budget who may opt for a cheap DJ just because of their budget concerns.
The reason a wedding DJ usually costs more would be due to the difference in set up requirements and a professional wedding DJ would usually have a different party set up to a wedding set up they may also be required to set up early, bring additional microphones, add up lighting to the package maybe the wedding couple want a disco ball with spot lights for there first dance all these added extras is what makes a wedding DJ cost a lot more than a average party DJ.
There is usually a difference between a party DJ set up and a wedding DJ set up let’s take a look at some mobile disco & club DJ images below.
The cost of a Party DJ ?
When it comes to the cost of a party DJ prices tend to vary anything from £50 per hour to £75 per hour up to £100 per hour maybe more depending on the type of occasion venue location also the budget of the party hosts.
Some people spend more on a party than others the most common parties and main birthday parties being 13th’s 18th’s 21st’s 30th’s 40th’s 50th’s 60’s although you do get a few special birthdays as well as events and special occasions such as engagement parties, Christmas parties, New years parties, office parties, kids discos, school proms, charity events, awards nights, christenings + more it all depends on what sort of party you may be having and whether you want added extras.
The cost of a Club DJ
The cost of a club DJ can be anything from £30 per hour raising up to £50 per hour for more experienced club DJ’s and for professional club DJ hire you could be paying anything from £100 per hour to £25O per hour that’s not including celebrity DJ’s who get upwards of £1000 per hour + so you can see there is quite a variation from the bottom wanna be bedroom DJ starting out to the more experienced club DJ’s.
