Recently, many organizers have been describing the style of music in their clubs as “Open Format,” “Mash-Up,” or “Club Classics.”
Open format DJs are DJs who do not necessarily play electronic dance music such as techno or house, but rather those who prefer R’n’B, Hip Hop, Latin, and chart music.
What is an Open Format DJ?
The term open format DJ is relatively recent, but its essence and DJs that made this presentation have existed since the 80s.
At that time, parties between friends, known as a garage dance, were widespread, where the DJs themselves had a vast and often exclusive repertoire, in which people wanted to go to the party precisely because only that DJ had the songs.
In short, the open format DJ is an artist who is not tied to a specific style of music. He has a pervasive musical knowledge, a very refined technique connected to any novelty. He has an extraordinary track feeling that knows how to play the right music at the right time.
How much does an Open Format DJ make?
The performer on the show, an open format DJ, is most often paid based on its act. Its income depends on its notoriety.
- Independent mobile DJ: between €500 and €1000 per show (wedding, evening …)
