me and teh sdm got paid £70 each for a solo hour each then 1hr b2b. that's the most i've ever got. other than that i generally don't get paid because alot of the sets i get are for peole i know who don't charge on the door.

if i could command a fee, i reckon it would be about £50 for a biggish event.

but at the end of the day i'm not in it for the money, it's just a nice bonus.

oh yeah, i've been playing out for over a year.

And it's not just about the money, it's also about what the events' aiming at, if you're involved or just someone to fill a slot.

A lot of the best Djs I know usually play for free.

Others DJs (and some Producers on the strength of 1 or 2 big tracks) get signed up to an agency and start asking silly money when they just aren't worth it.

A lot of agency DJs are sitting at home cos they've been told they deserve £x amount.

If you're looking for money try and hype yourself up and get an agent, otherwise, just enjoy the music.

Think about it, you have to be a pretty big name before your fee covers the cost of the records in your box.

Never been paid anything worthwhile. Usually whatever i get paid i gamble away on the old nags or invest in the Skunk-daq stock exchange or just plain piss it up the wall!
Thats how it should be...... cash is for livin'
