    Well what kind of festival is it? Is it a DJ inspired festival where many other DJs perform as well, and fans come to see YOU and other DJs perform or is it a different themed festival and you just so happen to have a DJ set there and people go there to enjoy food, drinks, and possibly a couple rides. Kind of like a fair.

    If its a fair type of festival and you happen to have a DJ set, then its tough, you just have to treat it like any other club gig, play to the crowd, read the crowd, try to learn which style genre they're feeling as you play and go from there.

    If it is a DJ festival where many other DJs will also perform, than its your time to shine. You play the genre you love the most. This isn't a gig its a show. It isnt like a club where people go and get drinks and complain that the DJ isn't playing their song and dozens of assholes will have requests, this is a SHOW, people come to watch YOU perform, give them your absolute best set. Don't worry about burning other DJs in the process if you aren't the headliner, at a festival, everyone is a headliner. You need to play the tracks that your fans love to hear and gain new fans in the process.

    First off, congratulations to you first gig Lucas! Tips? If you’re doing pretty well already, don’t worry, an agent will find you. Make yourself more appealing to an agent/promoter by creating and providing them the tools they need to sell you. What tools you ask? For starters, a bio, high resolution photos, discography, video, press clips, and anything else that makes you look like a star! Prep it just in case they'll come in handy. This is your media kit ready to go. Hope this helps
