Dj Placement is obviously dependent on your venue, they may have particular restrictions or recommendations in this regard and should be consulted along with myself in order to determine the best placement of my table.
There is a balance between where to place your Dj. Consider what works well for the dancing, as well as for easy access by the MC. Obviously, the setup should look good and not impact on the beautiful decor of the venue.
Also note that the Dj needs to lay cables. If the location you have allocated for him is far from the dancing area, or location where the speakers need to go, this can create a for a messy setup of taping down cables.
Here are some basic requirements, or suggestions, from the DJ perspective:
- The dance floor should be located directly in front of me or at least ‘touch’ me
- Your older guests should be situated as far from the dance area as possible.
- Your younger guests should be situated closer to the dance floor.
- The speakers should be able to be positioned directly by the dance floor, normally one on either side.
