Your DJ questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a DJ cost?

DJ prices are $300 to $800 on average for birthday parties, corporate events, bar/bat mitzvahs, and other private parties. Wedding DJ prices are $500 to $4,500. The average cost to hire a DJ depends on the event type and length, your location, the DJ's experience, and the package and add-on services you select. Average DJ prices for various event types are:

  • Wedding: $500 to $4,500
  • Birthday / anniversary party: $250 to $1,000

DJs charge $75 to $200 per hour for most parties and corporate events and $150 to $300+ per hour for weddings. Prices for bar mitzvahs and quinceañeras can often be as high as or higher than their wedding prices because these parties often include extra services like giveaways, MC services, a photo booth, and more.

How much should you tip a DJ?

The standard tip for a DJ ranges from 15% to 20% of their total fee, depending on the even type, duration, and complexity, and the services provided. Consider tipping on the higher end of the range if the DJ kept the party alive, engaged the crowd, and ensured the event ran smoothly and on schedule.

In additional to tipping, express your gratitude by posting positive reviews online, referring the DJ to friends and family, and sharing their info on social media.

DJ Lori was hands down the best DJ ever! She was so helpful from start to finish, and really took a lot of work load off of my wife and I. She was extremely professional, understanding, and energetic through our whole experience. She also made us feel so comfortable. She had the whole wedding dancing the night away with great musical transitions and sound/lighting. Highly recommend!

We cannot begin to even thank Jay for making our big day absolutely magical. He began his day with us doing our ceremony music, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. So many of our guests commented on his ability to read the crowd and truly make the night fun and amazing! We did not have a wedding day planner either and because of Jay, he kept everything on time and made everything flow so smoothly. Having a Chicago wedding while planning it many states away, I knew we made the right choice when we he reached our multiple times to make sure everything was on track and if there was anything he could help with. I am recommending him to all of our friends and family and so wish we could relive the night! THANK YOU JAY!
