DJ Expert Series: How to Plan for Outdoor Events

by Micheale Washington 27 Apr 2023 0 Comments
Working as a DJ at an outdoor event can be a challenging but rewarding experience. With the right preparation and equipment, you can make sure your performance is unforgettable. Here are some tips for DJs working at outdoor events:
  1. Protect Your Equipment: Outdoor events expose your equipment to harsh weather conditions such as rain, wind, and dust. Always bring appropriate covers or cases to protect your equipment, especially the electrical equipment.
  2. Lighting and Audio: Supply lighting and audio equipment that are weatherproof to ensure safety and performance. Proper equipment will handle any moisture and withstand vibrations that wind or stormy conditions may generate.
  3. Backup: Always have a backup plan in case of external elements causing technical difficulties or malfunctions. Bring an extra microphone, portable amp, and pen or paper.
  4. Power: Make sure to have multiple power sources available. Consider investing in a generator or battery packs that can help support equipment that needs to be charged throughout the event.
  5. Dress Comfortably: You’ll want to dress appropriately for the weather. Wearing comfortable shoes for standing all day is also essential.
  6. Adjust Volume: Monitor the volume throughout the event. Peak noise levels for outdoor events are typically 85 dB or lower. It’s always beneficial to confirm the acceptable volume range with the event organizer or venue manager.
  7. Timing: Stick to a schedule throughout the event to ensure that there is ample time for music or announcements. Communicate effectively with the event organizer or planner throughout the day to make sure everything is on schedule.
  8. Connect with the Audience: Outdoor events provide a unique and music-enriched experience. Engage with the audience comprehensively to share the moment and create a memorable experience that accompanies your music.
In summary, outdoor events can be an amazing experience for performers and attendees alike. Proper preparation, backup plans and adjustments for appropriate lighting and equipment will make your event a success. Keeping these tips in mind will allow you to provide music that creates an unforgettable experience for everyone in attendance.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
