Making a DJ Contract

  • What is a DJ Contract?

    If you're a DJ booking a gig with a venue, an event planner or a promoter, use a DJ Contract to make your agreement official. Whether you're playing music as a disk jockey at a wedding, a birthday, a corporate event, or a club party, this document can help define everyone's expectations. As a Rocket Lawyer member, you may opt to access Document Defense®, which allows an attorney to help you demand payment or otherwise enforce your legal rights. 

  • Do I need a DJ Booking Contract?

    No matter how long you've been in operation as a DJ, it is crucial to keep track of your work with a contract. You might choose to use a DJ Contract template due to the fact that it can present these benefits:

    • Both parties know when deposits or payments are due
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by both parties
    • Sound and lighting equipment needs are agreed upon
    • The event date and time are clearly defined

    Without this document, you and the client may experience any of these unwanted outcomes: unexpected changes, last-minute cancellation, difficulty getting paid, and barely any legal recourse if something were to go wrong.

  • What should a DJ Contract cover?

    In order to make a DJ Contract online, you'll need to prepare the following information in advance:

    • Name and address of the event organizer
    • What services will be provided by the DJ
    • What the duration of the event is
    • What fees will be charged and when

    As expected, your document made on Rocket Lawyer also contains the standard language about the independent work relationship between the parties, liability, confidentiality, and dispute resolution methods. As you make your agreement, you also can pick the state under which it will be governed. Using the document tool, you are able to implement additional customization, as necessary.

  • How much would I typically pay to get a DJ booking contract template created by a lawyer?

    Fortunately, you don't have to pay hundreds of dollars in legal fees to put your agreement in writing. With Rocket Lawyer, any disk jockey should feel empowered to make a DJ Contract for free online today. Your agreement will be assembled piece by piece, as you answer simple questions to provide more information along the way. Simply tap or click "Make document" above to start.

    If you've got any questions about how to move forward, connect with an attorney, or browse our full collection of business legal documents.

  • What should happen after my contract for DJ services is drafted?

    Upon finishing your custom contract on Rocket Lawyer, you can get to it in your account at any time and place. With a membership, you will be able to make edits, make copies, save it in Word or PDF format, print it, and sign it with RocketSign®. Attached to your DJ Contract, there's a set of instructions that you'll need to finalize the document. Be sure to provide a final copy of your fully signed contract to the other party.

  • Can my DJ Contract be checked out by a lawyer before it is signed?

    The answer will vary depending on whom you reach out to, but quite often some attorneys will not even agree to review a document if they did not write it. An easier approach to consider is to get help via Rocket Lawyer attorney services. With a Premium membership, you can ask for guidance from an experienced lawyer or get answers to other questions related to your DJ Contract. As always, Rocket Lawyer is here to help.
