Comparison of DJ booking and event software

A quick roundup of 2019’s best DJ booking systems. There are only 4 systems that are focused on DJ’s. These vary in price and audiance.

Some of these booking systems have extensive feature set’s which make them extreamly compliced and error prone for the casual user. Some of the booking systems take the KISS approach.

With the exception of Kwik Event None of the booking system include a fully featured weebsite, they rely upon you having your own website to integrate the html snippest and forms into.

For the 80% of the market shich are single operator DJ’s concentrating on supplying a personal DJ service, I would recommend
For multiple operators I would hold out for KwikEvent v2 later in 2019 or dive right into to DJ Event Planner.
I wouldn’t recommend Gigbuilder for outside of the US as it seems to lack basic functionality wor work with multiple currenecives, languages and regions when tested in December 2018.
