    Default Booking DJs

    Hey, so I've been put in charge of booking an artist/performer for my high school's prom. Since I'm a senior, I get jurisdiction over what genre we book, and since last year we booked The Pack, we're going techno/electronic this year.

    Our budget is anywhere from 10-20K.

    Does anyone know of DJs/electronic groups who aren't too expensive, open to private events (and high school events, I guess), and preferably near CA?

    We've contacted so far:

    Girl Talk
    Boys Noize
    A-Trak
    MSTRKRFT

    May 16: Mogwai @ Orpheum

    That's what I figured too, then I realized that "up and coming DJs" are suckas for cash.

    Woah, rich.

    All we got for my high school prom was one chemical brother instead of both.


















    No, my high school didn't get shit for prom, but that was Coachella weekend anyway so I wasn't there.

    Try booking the Bloody Beetroots? Or, better yet, see if 20K will cover Etienne de Crecy's fucking awesome cube. If you can get that, you will make it the best prom ever.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    this would actually be a great call if he was around...i bet he would love to do a high school show, and his set would be entertaining for everyone there...

    good call.

    I could get the smokes but probably not the Bordeaux.

    Too bad I don't go to a Catholic school I could charge it the school and say I'm stocking up for Eucharist
