What’s the difference between an MC and a DJ?

If you’re feeling foggy about what exactly your DJ will be doing for you (besides obviously playing music), then this article is for you! 

One of the first things you want to find out when hiring a DJ for your event is whether they consider themselves a DJ, an MC, or both. You also want to know whether you’re getting just one person or a two person team. This can significantly impact the experience you and your guests have!

What is an MC?

Typically, an MC is considered a professional event host. They will plan with you ahead of time to determine activities, announcements, traditions, music choices, and the timeline for the night, as well as be responsible for hosting the actual event. 

 

MCs (or emcees) are typically skilled in:

  • microphone work

  • making announcements

  • helping you plan the timeline

  • giving music or activity suggestions if needed

  • facilitating games or other activities

  • introducing important people or moments

  • getting the crowd excited to cheer, clap, or dance

  • interacting with everyone involved to keep things going on schedule

 

What is a DJ?

To contrast, a DJ (or deejay) is typically focused on mostly music. They are typically skilled in:

  • music knowledge

  • prepping playlists/next songs

  • reading the crowd

  • mixing

  • troubleshooting any equipment problems

  • potentially operating dance floor lights, etc.

 

What should I choose?
