These themes are all responsive which means they look just as good on mobile devices as desktop computers. This is important in the music industry where many visitors will be showing and buying tickets on the go.
Here are my top picks for best DJ WordPress themes for 2019.
Music Club can be used for a variety of sites in the music industry, but the demo site in the screenshot above is designed specifically for DJs. That said, all of the demos are beautiful and you should check them all out to get a better sense of how this theme can be used.
If you want to stand out from the first moment your site loads, Music Club will be an excellent choice for a DJ WordPress theme. The design is absolutely gorgeous. It’s rare to find a theme that uses color so effectively while maintaining a minimalist style.
Scrolling through the demo site, you’ll see that there are distinct sections on the homepage. You don’t have to recreate this homepage exactly for your site. In fact, by using the included page builder, you can create a completely custom page layout. That means you can use any sections you want and place them in any order. If you’re interested in selling music or merchandise from your site, you’ll also appreciate the slick integration with the WooCommerce plugin.
Acidum is a stylish and attractive DJ theme. It makes great use of color and strong typography to create a unique design. In addition, there are tons of advanced animations throughout the theme which give it a very alive and modern vibe.
You’ll likely appreciate the dark, nightclub aesthetic this theme has. Beyond a matching style for a DJ, it also has layouts and features that will fit your business well. This DJ theme places an emphasis on events. Right away it invites visitors to check your upcoming shows and buy tickets or book a table.
If you want to use a lot of media to promote yourself as a DJ, Acidum can help. There are beautiful image galleries you can use to highlight shots from each past show you’ve done. You can use the audio player to provide your latest tracks and mixes, and you can even sell merchandise via an eCommerce store on your own site.
Buzz Club has an uber-cool and exciting style. The background video brings the entire site to life and with the right content, it can be extremely energizing. The demo site follows this up with a series of upcoming events each complete with beautiful background images and the parallax scrolling effect.
As a DJ, selling tickets to your upcoming shows is probably the most important thing your site can do for you. Buzz Club has a clear emphasis on this aspect of the design which makes it a potentially more profitable choice than other themes listed here.
It integrates with the Events Calendar plugin for adding a schedule of your shows. It also comes with an Instagram plugin for sharing your feed on the site. If you have a lot of content to publish you’ll like this theme too. The blog is well-designed and there are plenty of portfolio layouts for adding image galleries.
MusicPlay is a full-featured theme for the music industry. While it can work well for DJs, it might work best for radio DJs in particular.
From a glance at the screenshot above, you can see how many types of content you can publish with the MusicPlay theme. You can publish album lists and visitors can click on any album to preview the track list. Every page of the site has an audio player at the bottom that will autoplay any track the visitor selects and doesn’t skip when changing pages. You can also publish lists of artists, DJ mixes, photos, and videos.
As a DJ, the DJ mixes feature is probably most appealing. This is a simple way for you to include an up-to-date list of your latest mixes. The audio itself can come from an external site like SoundCloud or iTunes, or you can upload the file to your site and host it yourself. While the dark black style is featured above, you can create a lighter variant too.
IronBand has been a popular theme for DJs and musicians for some time now. It has thousands of sales and excellent reviews on Themeforest which make it a dependable choice for your DJ website.
You’ll see that the homepage is thoughtfully designed for DJ artists. You can feature your latest news, songs you have released (or favorites from other artists), your latest tweets, videos, and your upcoming events. The built-in events post type is pretty cool. It lets you publish your shows on your site separately from the blog posts and pages on the site.
Among other features in IronBand, you can even publish pages with albums and complete track lists. Visitors can play any song using the MP3 audio player that comes included in this theme for DJs. You can even share a preview while linking to Amazon, iTunes, or SoundCloud for the full version. Add in custom fonts and seven color schemes, and this feature-rich WP theme is quite customizable too.
