4 Fort Collins DJs That Brought The Party to FoCoMX

Passionate Colorado DJs bring the party to Fort Collins.

Fort Collins DJs featured in area music festival

Mountain Event Services was well represented this year at the annual Fort Collins music festival FoCoMX.  Four of our Fort Collins DJs each presented their signature style of music and live remixing at three different area venues on Friday and Saturday night.

  • 16:  There were 16 DJ/electronic acts at FoCoMX this year.
  • 4: Four of the 16  DJs and Electronic acts featured at FoCoMX 8 in 2016 are associated with Mountain Event Services.
  • 2: In a ground breaking move, the FoCoMX program committee featured DJs at the two main venues of the festival, which housed some of the most influential and popular bands in the festival.  Featuring DJs on the main stage was a controversial first for FoCoMX. Our team represented half (1/2) of the coveted main stage DJ spots of the festival.
  • 1: One Mountain Event Services DJ was the face of FoCoMX in two area publications.
  • 0: No other DJ company but Mountain Event Services can claim that their DJ was named the Fort Collins Musicians Association DJ of the Year.

What is FoCoMX?

FoCoMX, taking place annually in Fort Collins since 2008, is a weekend music festival celebrating the Northern Colorado Music Scene over 2 nights, with 20+ venues, and ~250 bands, DJs, and comedians.  Shows are packed back to back in terms of times and locations which allows fans to make a schedule and move from show to show with relative ease.  Its a volunteer-run music lover’s fantasy put on by the Fort Collins Musician’s Association (FoCoMA).

How does this apply to my party DJ?

How important is it to you that your DJ can bring in live remixing skills, experience with different types of audiences and situations, and their own personal musical style to the party?

Our special event DJs are not only experienced with announcements and all the music required to provide professional event services for all kinds of special events and private parties – they are experienced with the traditions of important formal events like company parties, public events, weddings, bar mitzvahs, and quinceaneras.  Our professional party DJs for weddings and events are also producers/remixers that perform at music festivals, concerts, lounges, and nightlife events.  Having this background allows us to anticipate the needs of any situation with experience and authority.  We collaborate with you to curate your personalized party vibe, then we enhance it with our own sought-after flavor and style.
