    I'm nervous because I have upwards of 7 hours to perform, and I am lacking variety in my mixes. I'm solid with House, Happy Hardcore, and Dub, but I lack variety of music, and I don't my audience being bored

    Have fun! If you're not having fun, fake it! The more into your set you are, the more into it the crowd will be. Don't worry about pleasing everyone, just do your best. No matter how it goes it's just one night of many to come, and you're going to learn a lot. Take deep breaths if your nervous and DON'T DRINK TOO MUCH!!

    pace yourself .. dont be discouraged if people leave the floor from time to time (theyre just getting drinks so they can rage later on)

    That is a long time. I'd end up playing some crazy sh!t just to keep myself entertained.

    In a seven hour set don't be afraid of maybe repeating some stuff if you don't have lots of music. Most people probably wouldn't even notice.
