When you take out a listing with needadisco.com we will also include your company's details on other websites in our portfolio FREE of charge, depending on their entry requirements. A summary of some of our brands is shown to the right.
Our entertainment-related websites are either locality or service driven, therefore making natural partners for advertising mobile discos and capturing enquiries.
needadisco.com - Recognition
We launched our mobile DJ accreditation scheme DJmark in 2007, and to this day it remains the most in-depth awards scheme for professional mobile disco companies in the UK. Highly regarded by clients and venue owners alike, a DJmark Award shows that you have due regard for the law and take customer care very seriously.
DJmark is accredited by the UK's largest mobile disco trade association, the National Association of DJs (NADJ).
It is also supported by one of the UK's largest providers of public and employee liability insurance for disco operators, the Mobile DJ Network (MDJN).
Members of NADJ and/or MDJN are entitled to discounts on a range of upgrades and renewals.
Once you are a needadisco.com member you can submit documentation for independent vetting and we will reward you with Validator Badges and DJmark Awards for your website, along with access to our highest value leads and websites such as needaweddingdisco.com.

These figures represent jobs advertised via needadisco.com since 1/1/2013 for events taking place at any point after 1/1/2013, and confirmed amounts only include jobs where both the DJ and the client have confirmed closure. E&OE.
As part of your subscription, we may also promote your business across our range of entertainment related websites, including:
Membership of needadisco.com is by annual pre-payment subscription. We use PayPal for our transactions, but you don't need to have a PayPal account - just choose to pay with a UK Debit or Credit Card instead. Your PayPal payment confirmation email serves as your invoice.
All new subscriptions are eligible to list in up to 6 postal areas. A postal area is the beginning part of a UK postcode. For example, if your postcode is RG1 1XX then the postal area is RG. This covers several large towns. When setting up your listing later, you can choose to cover whole or partial postal areas. The number of postal areas assigned to your account can be increased later.
A standard Annual Subscription is £50 per annum.
Full members of the National Association of DJs (NADJ) receive 15 months instead of 12 AND are eligible for 20% off all in-service upgrades and renewals.
Agencies are welcome to use this service but please read this information before signing up.
Our standard subscription is £50 per year, applies to most areas of the UK and provides for up to 6 postcode areas - plenty for most mobile DJs. If you need more areas, you may upgrade once you have signed up. For a full scale of charges, see our price list.Sign me up! →
RURAL AREA SUBSCRIPTION
There are certain parts of the UK where we are currently under-represented. We are therefore offering a special subscription rate providing for TWO postal areas (instead of the usual six) IF your BASE POSTCODE falls into one of the following ranges:
We reserve the right to add to or remove from this list as necessary, however whichever subscription rate you pay when you join needadisco.com will remain in effect for the life of your membership.
The rate for this subscription is £25 per annum.Sign me up for the Rural Area subscription at £25 →
Agencies are welcome to join needadisco.com however you should bear in mind that the site is designed for small operators who focus primarily on providing a traditional party mobile disco service.
Members earn a higher rank by submitting documentation such as PLI, PAT and Health & Safety materials and this higher rank in turn places them higher in search results which improves their chances of winning bids. Agencies will often find it difficult to provide such documentation unless the company operates its own equipment or the agency operator also works as a mobile DJ.
Additionally, our clients are expecting quotes from individual DJs and some prefer not to deal with agencies, and therefore we will clearly advise clients that the company sending them a quotation is in fact an agency.
We would advise that an agency should utilise needadisco.com in the following manner:
Doing so means that you can then submit individual documentation sets for multiple DJs, and each can have their own set of preferences (budgets, gig types, coverage area and so on) but the administrative contact information would remain common. Each DJ would then find their 'natural place' in the rankings and our clients would be much more likely to accept that these DJs can only be booked via the agency.
Applicants should be aware that certain benefits of needadisco.com membership are reserved for those members who go on to achieve a DJmark Award.
Notably, client requests for "Premium DJs" are only offered to members who hold a current DJmark Award because this is one of the differentiating factors.
Full members of the National Association of DJs (NADJ) do not need to supply proof of PLI, PAT or ELI as this is automatically handled for you.
