We’re all human, and people get sick or injured, and accidents happen. In the event of a serious emergency, it can be nerve racking to feel like you’re out of a DJ. It’s essential for professional DJs and event organizers to have contingency plans in place for emergencies to ensure that events can proceed smoothly even if unforeseen circumstances arise.
1. Backup DJ
Our customers who have this worry, have the option of purchasing a backup DJ to be on standby for their event. Extremely large and/or important events may do this. However, this is the nuclear option as 99.99999% of events don’t need this.
2. Replacement DJ
In the event a backup DJ is not purchased, being at CLIK, a well connected company, pays off. Not only do we have other DJs on staff, but even our DJ Assistants have DJ skills and can step in. We also work with companies all over the USA and can fly DJs in, if we’ve exhausted all local options.
3. Remote DJ Set
In the event a backup DJ wasn’t purchased and a replacement DJ is not possible, it might be possible that the DJ, or a DJ, can perform remotely, streaming their set to the event venue. Perhaps the event organizer prefers the ill DJ to perform from home, rather than be present in the event space. Our virtual events have made this possible, and easy!
4. Reschedule / Cancellation
In some cases, if all the above fail or if the event organizer prefers to stick with the original DJ, the event may be rescheduled to a later date when the DJ is available. This option depends on the availability and flexibility of both the organizer and the DJ. However, on the contrary, the other option would be a cancellation.
Planning Makes Perfect
Everyone does their best to plan for the worst, but communication is key in these situations, as early notification allows for better solutions to be put in place. This is something you can find at CLIK!
