DJ and mobile disco services provide music and related entertainment at parties, wedding receptions, school proms and corporate events. This typically involves setting up their own professional equipment such as mixers, decks and turntables, selecting and playing tracks that are suitable for the occasion, and acting as a compere. They often provide and use other equipment such as disco lights, smoke machines and karaoke machines.
Many DJs also work on a freelance basis in bars and nightclubs, and at live events such as music festivals. In these cases, DJ equipment will often be provided by the venue proprietor or event host.
