MY First Pro GIG / large public event

OK so I have been asked to DJ & Help MC

a fairly large outdoor event !!!!!!! in Philadelphia !!!!

It is a BMX & Vintage Bike Show / Retro& custom Build competition & Expo

Venue is FDR skate park ( under I-95 )
This is one of the highest rated public Open air skate parks in the country
It is also where they held gravity games finals & X-Games Finals
It is also featured on the Game "Tony Hawk - Proving Grounds"

I have a friend in the Pro BMX / Freestyle Bike circles

100+ bikes and displays 100-200 people ( maybe less / maybe more )

SO ......I have to do some prep

1. I have to check the range on PA / Mic in an open air setting
2. check range of music / in open air w/ current amp & speakers
3. peep the venue and fairgrounds / were they want to announce from / gauge how far / the majority of exhibitors are to were they want / the music heard the most
4. acquire and test generators
5. as always back up back up backup
6. music - I already have a basic Idea of possible tracks& sets but I have asked to get Req/ playlists suggestions from three of the youngest and three of the Older participants ( I plan on taking young list / my list & old head list to come up with a few flowing but eclectic sets )
I am also planning to preview some similar events videos and listen for type of hype tracks

probably do a few pre mixed sets - for two reasons ( back up cds if lappy blows ) and so I can take a break and check out the bikes


Any other advice or input would be great !!!!
