How many times have you gone to a party, ready to sweat it out on the dance floor, only for the music to be disappointing because the host is playing tunes from their gym workout playlist or random Pandora selection? It has probably happened more times than you can remember, and it’s always a total buzzkill. Nothing shuts a party down faster than a room full of people hugging the walls because the music mix isn’t popping.
So how can you make sure your next party has a playlist that will keep people happy and on the dance floor until the sun comes up? Check out these three apps that let you and your friends become DJs of your own party by helping you to create the perfect party playlist.
Creating a party playlist with friends sounds super easy - until you remember Apple Music and Spotify don't mix. So how do you create unity amongst your crew so that everyone can get in on the fun? Enter SoundShare, this app works across several music streaming platforms, so that you can share songs and build collaborative playlists no matter which music service your friends use.

Nothing is worse than a party playlist that gets dominated by one person or sound. What makes Jukestar great is that the app pumps out music based on who requested the song, when they requested it and how it was rated by other party goers. The better the rating, the higher up on the playlist the song moves.

By now you've probably used, or at least heard of, Spotify. But did you know that you and your friends could create playlists together in the app? Spotify partnered with SONOS speakers to create the Playlist Potluck. All you have to do is set the event's theme, invite your friends to contribute to a playlist from within the Spotify app or on the Playlist Potluck website, and then proceed to have the most lit party soundtrack ever.
