How to host crowdDJ Karaoke

Whether you have dedicated Karaoke rooms or small functions spaces, Self-Hosted Karaoke with crowdDJ makes things easy. Set up time limits and give your customers host-mode controls through a crowdDJ kiosk to make running multiple karaoke rooms a breeze.

Your staff will start a crowdDJ Karaoke session with the Manage My Nightlife app, nominate a kiosk or mobile phone to use for Host Mode, set a time limit and instruct customers on how to use the kiosk to pick songs and control playback. Once set up and running, your customers can sing to their heart’s content until time runs out.

Setup Instructions for Staff

  1. Sign in to Manage My Nightlife on your mobile device or Nightlife Tablet.
  2. Connect to the relevant zone where you want to enable karaoke. Karaoke rooms are usually separate from the main bar or common area.
  3. Tap the Menu button in the top left corner and then tap on Controls.
  4. Tap the Functions and Karaoke Wizard button to start setting up karaoke.
  5. Go through each page and change the settings to match the desired style of karaoke.
  6. When you are happy with your settings, hit Start Session to begin.

Please wait 30 seconds for the kiosk to complete setup.

After the kiosk enters host mode and the playback controls have appeared, take your customers through how to use the kiosk.

Customer Guide

Once you’ve set up the crowdDJ kiosk to run karaoke, take your guests through how it works with these steps.
