For 4 -6pm event (K-Pop Dance Competition) on Oct 1, as usual, we would need Mic, Sound & Lighting control for the stage would be needed. Additional Lighting for dance performance would be great, considering the stage needs to be cleared out for the Concert at 7:30. Dressing room would be needed. Considering the Covid-19, this year we may not have food for this event.
