Music for Events

Modified on Tue, 09 Aug 2022 at 11:48 AM

For indoor events, IT can provide music from a streaming service that connects to Wi-Fi. WiFi does not extend to outdoor spaces and will require you to bringing your own music.  IT can assist you with amplifying your music for both indoor or outdoor events.


Some things to consider:

  • Will your music be live or pre-recorded?
  • If using a band will they bring all their own equipment?
  • Most professional DJs will bring their own sound system.
  • Amateur DJs may ask to connect to our sound system.
  • Will the music be the focus of the event, an accompaniment, or is it purely for background and to set the mood?
  • Is the music you'd like to use able to be played in public?
  • Please be aware that your personal Pandora, Spotify, Slacker Radio, Apple Music, and other music subscription services are licensed for personal playback only. Playing them in public is a violation of the terms of service. If you need streaming music, ensure that your service authorizes playback in public settings.
  • A permit with the City of Cambridge is required for amplified sound outdoors for speeches or music. Public Safety can assist with obtaining the permit.
