Once all the main booking and planning for your event has been done, it is time to start thinking about smaller, but essential, details that will bring everything together. This includes factors such as the music. As we all know, music plays a significant role for most events and without it, there will be a sense of silence in the air.
As mentioned on Venuelust, music brings the environment together, so deciding on specific songs, a genre and playlist can sometimes be a difficult task for organizers. It is usually not as simple as just playing the music that you like listening to in your own time, as this may not necessarily be suitable or fitting for the event that you are organising.
Venuelust’s article offers good advice to assist when making a playlist for your event. It mentions that considering your guests is important because ultimately, they are your audience. Thinking about who they are, their age and their likes and dislikes will help define your crowd. Keeping this is mind will assist you in choosing a playlist that will appeal to your guest list and ensure they have a great time. Along with this, in order to get the most out of your playlist, it is a good idea to consider the overall feel or vibe that you wish to set for your event and select music that will support and accommodate for this.
You should also take into consideration how long your event will run for so that you can create a playlist long enough to cover the whole duration. There is nothing worse than hearing the same song on repeat so make sure you have enough songs selected to prevent this from happening and your guests from getting bored.
Because every single event and audience will differ, we cannot tell you exactly what kind of music to play and what songs to add to your playlist; but by taking into consideration some of these factors, you will be able to make more informed decisions when creating your event playlist. Remember that with your playlist selection, you are able to create an atmosphere and influence the mood of your guests, so it is worth putting some time and effort into this.
