As a DJ, you probably perform live regularly, but to build your career beyond that you also need a website. Establishing an online presence is important for any musician, and as a DJ, it’s crucial.
Are you wondering how to make your own DJ website that will showcase your new mixes and help you book more gigs? Or maybe you’re just thinking about adding an EPK to your DJ website.
In any case, these designs below should give you some inspiration and help you on your way to creating a DJ website that suits your personality.
Use a mobile-friendly, modern template
There are so many music website templates to choose from - the key to creating a look that will show off your range as a DJ, is to keep it simple. You’ll be adding a lot of colorful content, from tracks to videos. Choosing a template with a simple background and header area will give your website a clean, organized look.
Remember that a lot of people will be browsing from mobile devices. You’ll want to be sure that visiting your DJ website is a pleasant experience for them. Don’t clutter up your pages with unnecessary content - just choose your best stuff, and let that shine on your pages.
Build your page layouts
Once you’ve chosen a DJ website template, customize the pages by adding sections. You can stack your content in sections, and move things around on the page. Remember to focus each page on one main thing: a bio, your music, a store, an EPK, or a contact form.
Your menu should contain the name of each page clearly, making it easy to locate. Then on each page, assemble the relevant content into rows. After your content is in place, it’s time to make it look great with images and color.
To set up your sections layouts, you can make use of a subtle background palette like DJ Smokey Rose. Her website is super clean and clear, with sections in shades of grey and white to set off her content.
She also uses the image and text feature, making her Homepage appealing as well as straightforward. When you visit her website, you find out who she is and what she does immediately. You also get a true sense of her style from her header image. She appears fun, funky, and professional - perfect to book for a house gig.
She’s cultivated a vibe on her pages that makes you feel like she has it together and would be a great DJ to hire. She used columns to separate out columns within the sections, making her pages organized. To finish it off, she used simple colors to tie together her content.

Curate your content
As a DJ, you likely have a multifaceted career going. Be sure to make full use of your website as a professional calling card, and include all of the elements you will need to further your career.
You’ll want to include an artist bio, music and mixes, upcoming gigs, photos, a clear way to contact you, plus a store feature if you have merch to sell.
DJ Todd Terry created a simple but engaging Store page on his website. The header on this page is short, and set behind his menu, leaving lots of room for his merch. The buy buttons spell out the price clearly, and pop off the page with an outline in a bright blue.
Your eye is drawn to the imagery on the page. His full-width header is flanked by a simple dark blue background. If you are here to shop, the experience is seamless.

Another great example of a simple yet well-laid out page comes from DJ Heat, a sports DJ and on-air personality. She keeps her design clean, with a simple white background to show off her great logo. Her photos page offers a nice snapshot into her world, with lots of professionally done pictures to choose from.
It’s also nicely organized in neat rows, showing that while she has a fun side, she also takes time and care with her profession.

Add a page for music and mixes
The best DJ websites make their focus clear - music. Just as you’re used to manipulating sounds on a turntable, extend that sensibility to a dedicated music page. A standalone page will show that you’re serious about your mixes. It will also give your fans lots to look at and explore when they visit your DJ website.
Electronica and techno DJ and producer Classic Roots put together a music page that pops with personality, yet looks sleek and stunning. He uses a full-width image as his background, under a subtle navy filter. Then hits of yellow and blue-green draw attention to the play button on his original mixes.
The layout of his page makes his music easy to find, listen to, and download. He offers a variety of free and paid tracks, grouped by album or EP.

Use imagery and color
Once you’ve set up your pages and added your content, make sure your website conveys a sense of who you are. The best way to do that is to use imagery or colors that show your personality.
DJ Danga Dang uses a colorful template that suits her well. She created a website that includes imagery layered under hues of yellow and pink. The colors change as you scroll down her pages, giving her site an interesting and modern vibe.
With a simple drop-down menu set in purple, her website is not only creative, but it’s also easy to navigate. Her homepage is a full image, giving you a sense of who she is right off the bat.
Then the inner pages showcase a background image, logo on the left, and music and videos over top. The fresh colors along with her content just make you smile when you check out her pages.

Add an EPK for DJs
Wanting to book more shows? Creating an EPK as a one stop shop to help DJs get booked is easy to do with an EPK template.
To make an EPK on your DJ website, add a list of events to highlight where you’ve performed, plus a short bio. Reviews and testimonials from venues or customers can go on this page as well. Be sure to add a few of your best mixes, or a song list you’ll play at a gig.
DJ Athenz created a professional EPK on her DJ website in sleek black and white. She includes text that highlights her accomplishments. That’s followed by professionally taken photos for press in a variety of sizes. Then she lists a roster of clients and a contact form, making it easy to reach her for bookings right from this page.
Her content is easy to read, with a high contrast between the text and background, and she also included her social media icons so that promoters or clients quickly check those out.
