Gathering a song selection from an office team can sometimes be tricky. Especially if you do not have an event management company. Not only are you doing you’re current workload, but you’re now doing more. Here at SIFA Events, we aim to eliminate any extra work when gathering a song selection. Below we will explore our step-by-step guide to achieving song selection success everybody can enjoy.
What is a Playlist?
When booking your DJ, expect that the DJs Artist Manager would request your music playlist. Playlists are a guide to songs and artists that you wish the DJ to stick to parameters of. According to DJ Mag, playlists can extend from narrow to broad.
Did you book your DJ more than a fortnight in advance?
If you have booked your DJ more than a fortnight in advance, DJ agencies like SIFA Events provide a PDF list of all the most popular genres, artists, and songs best suited for any event. Through simply printing this PDF off and placing the file in a communal area, this makes the playlist accessible for staff to tick and cross their choices.
How about when a DJ is hired moments before the event?
When time is of the essence when gathering a playlist, SIFA Events suggests directly contacting each attendee or utilizing a communal space. Reaching out to your team can be actioned by either emailing your team or placing a notice on the notice board or communal area.
On the email or notice, what you can write is asking for each team members five favorite artists and five favorite songs they would like to hear. As opposed to a PDF list of all the most popular genres, artists, and songs, asking for five is more digestible and faster to obtain.
