Many DJs are perfectly comfortable spinning songs to small local audiences that the average DJ is accustomed to, especially on a weekend. However, among these ‘small-time DJs’, there are some that aspire to take their career to the next level and fill larger dancefloors using complex equipment. But what does it take to become one of the most successful DJs?


Your set is certainly a pivotal aspect, so here are some tips to help you make your DJ set stand out:

More than just a DJ

There is a lot more to being a DJ than just standing behind the decks and blasting out some songs for people week in week out. Instead, think of yourself as a performer. Your audience is there for entertainment, and you should provide this not only through your music but through your presence. A great way of interacting with your crowd is getting behind the microphone from time to time.

Add visual effects

While visuals have worked wonders for some of the world’s most famous DJs like Steve Aoki, Tiesto and Skrillex, they can also backfire. Visuals should be an effect that complements your music set, therefore you should carefully select the visuals, if you decide to use any at all!


In almost every case, practise makes perfect so persevere in improving your performances and eliminate any imperfections. Finding inspiration in established DJs’ sets can provide you with ideas on how to improve your music and on-stage presence. Closely analyse their performances and mirror elements of their personas if you feel that makes you any better.


Many mainstream DJs that you will find today distinguish themselves from other DJs through making their own music. This tip is possibly the most crucial aspect of making it as a successful DJ, because if people like the music that you make, they will be more than willing to see you perform again.

Whatever you do to enhance the brilliance of your set, make sure that the audience likes it. In addition, apart from improving your performance you need to make sure that you have reliable equipment with you on stage for an impressive set that does not have technical interruptions.
