Yes, but there is a wide payment range depending on several factors.

It depends what kind of DJing you’re doing. A standard 4 hour night at a restaurant or bar typically ranges from $200-$400 depending on the capacity and clientele. That number can also fluctuate with what equipment is needed to perform. Wedding DJs typically charge $150 per hour with extra add-ons like lighting packages and ceremony setup. Well known DJs negotiate the price they're paid depending on travel and performance needs. A well known DJ headlining with a two hour set can typically range from $1000-$10,000+.
