Because (1) driving laptops and mixers with both hands continuously for three hours is rather tiring; and (2) by a strange quirk of quantum physics, the sound and lighting kit doubles in weight at midnight; and (3) loading out has to be completed in half the time of loading in, because the host and the other helpers are ready to go home.

So if there is only one DJ, it’s only fair to incentivise/compensate him/her for keeping going even if they’re knackered. And if there are two DJs, they have to share the dosh.
