Our mobile discos are one of the best in the North West. We can transform any venue to create the best club atmosphere or the most romantic wedding setting. This is what we do 24/7 and we enjoy it !

Impressive, is it expensive?

We cater for all budgets so prices for a full set up, DJ a sound system for up to 100 people, starts at £100 for a basic mid week or daytime set up. Weekends with a DJ for 4 hours and a lighting and sounds system would be approx £250 on a Friday night or Saturday night. So no, its really cheap for the quality and experience ! We keep our sound quality high (min 2k rigs at any event and 4-6k rigs for events with more than 150 ppl) so our prices are very low and stay that way saving money on unnecessary marketing and as we have a heavily booked diary based on word of mouth and repeat customers.

Below are approx prices based on a 4 hour DJ set, for venues within a 10 mile radius of Manchester City Centre. this price includes, advance discussion of your playlist, a full sound system, disco lighting and some optional extras such as bubble / smoke machines / uplighters for free.
