How to make a party playlist

One of the most important factors that makes a great party is the music. You don't want to just play entire CDs or the radio, nor do you want to worry about changing discs. Making an awesome playlist is a great plan, and these days it is very easy to do. The music can make or break the party!

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Create the vibe at your party. What type of party are you having? Is it a dinner party, a cocktail party or a Saturday night bash? Depending on the situation, you can determine what type of playlist to create and how loud the music should be.

  2. 2

    Mix it up; variety is the best way to interest people. Throw in a bunch of different music. There is no limit unless you are having a dinner party, in which case you should limit the music to soft dinner music so people can converse comfortably.

  3. 3

    Gather together about 30 songs that will compile a hot playlist. You can create the playlist on different websites. Simply create an account, which is free, then add up to 100 songs that will play continuously.

  4. 4

    Experiment until you create a winning playlist. Make sure that you include songs that everyone knows, too. Check out a few of the newer websites that offer tons of music downloads.

Tips and warnings

  • If you add a song that not many are familiar with, follow it up with a few that you are certain everyone knows.
  • People like to hear something new but don't want to feel like they are completely out of the loop.
