Everybody loves party! We all love to DJ our own party especially when the party is memorable, for example, our wedding ceremony. How to use Spotify to DJ your party? Here are three different ways for you.


Part 1. Use Spotify to DJ at Your Party

Step 1. Log in Your Account on Spotify for PC

Download Spotify on your PC and log in to your Spotify.

Log in Spotify

Step 2. Create New Playlist

After signing in, find the "..." option on the top-left. Then, click "File" > "New Playlist" to add new playlist to your Spotify account.

Step 3. Add Music to Playlist

Now, it’s time to pick up songs and fill in your new playlist. You can search for new songs or import local music files from iTunes or other app: Spotify can automatically add songs from your computer or iTunes. But if your local files are empty after you click on "Local Files", you need to manually add a source to import files.

Add Local Files to Spotify

Hit on "GO TO PREFERNENCES" and scroll down to Local Files section. You can click on the "ADD A SOURCE" button and browse to find the computer folder that includes your local songs. After that, make sure that the toggle is enabled and shown green.

Step 4. Crossfade Your Songs and Play

Now, the party playlist is ready. To play the upcoming track without any gap in music, you need to set up crossfade. Go to "Edit" > "Preferences" and scroll down to "Playback" section. Enable "Crossfade songs" option and scroll left or right to choose the times.
