If something unfortunate happens, a professional DJ has liability insurance (up to $1M) to handle most situations. You don't want to be the guy who accidentally blows up your sound system, breaks a record, or trips people with poorly laid wires.
Professional DJs are event-experts and with you every step of the way. Sure an event can be fun without one, but you will have exponentially more fun when you leave the music, lighting, event flow, and logistics to a professional DJ.
