How is the price of a professional DJ with trade licence calculated ?
I will calculate this for you using the example of a 6 hour event:

  • Preliminary consultation: approx. 1.0 hrs.
  • Preparation of wishes and music for your event: approx. 1.5 hrs.
  • Loading in stock: 0.5 to 1 hour.
  • Directions to your party: approx. 1.0 hrs.
  • Setup of the sound & light system incl. test: approx. 2.0 hrs.
  • DJ time at your event: 6.0 hrs.
  • Dismantling of the sound & light system: approx. 1.5 hours
  • Departure from your party: approx. 1.0 hrs.
  • Unloading at the warehouse, as well as storage: 0.5 to 1 hour.

That makes together then times evenly approx: 15 -16 hours


Here still a small listing of important price information


  • the care and maintenance of the DJ equipment
  • Insurance of sound and light equipment
  • Business liability insurance and Gema fees
  • Advanced training seminars
  • Stay technically up to date
  • and the acquisition of new phonograms.
  • A vehicle for transport and maintenance
