Whether it’s a corporate event or a birthday party, every good event needs some background music. Creating your own event music is a simple and easy way to set the mood and create a soundscape that is truly fitting for the occasion. While it seems like a big undertaking, it can be a fun way to personalize your event and ensure the perfect soundtrack plays all night long. 

Here are a few tips for creating an event music playlist for your next big party. 

Tips for Creating an Event Music Playlist

Be sure it’s available offline. Be sure to have your playlist made available offline so that you won’t have any issues throughout the night. If you’re using a streaming app, you can simply download the playlists so that you won’t need internet access to play them.

Have a wide variety of music for everyone to enjoy. While it’s your big day, you want your guests to enjoy the event as well. Create a well-rounded playlist with newer and older songs that people will love. Keep in mind the general age group of those attending and be sure to make the playlist fun, light-hearted, and appropriate for the occasion.

Rent appropriate equipment. You won’t be hiring a DJ, but you may still need a speaker system to play your music. Be sure to speak to your vendor about the setup and tear down of the speaker system as well. 

Appoint someone to be in charge throughout the night. Whether it’s yourself or someone else helping out with the event, be sure there is someone delegated to MC the event and play the music.
