    here is a bit of info i would like to pass on...
    depending on where you have your line-up event(private property or city property) an insurance binder may be required...
    our situation in phoenix, as we are on mall property, is that we must furnish a 2 million dollar insurance binder against property damage. obviously we don't want to pay for a policy of that magnitude, so here's how we overcame it...

    get a local radio station involved!!!
    1. radio stations do these kinds of events all the time, and thus are the people to go to! if you approach a radio station with a proposal to sponsor your event(granting them exclusive coverage; exposure!)they will most likely pick up the financial aspect of it! companies such as these have a budget for this kind of thing, and if you have the theatre on your side you can offer things like a radio contests for tickets, or a contest to which the winner gets into the theatre first! even if the radio station declines the sponsorship, they still can provide you with a gold mine of information about insurance, and setting up events like these!

    2. if your line-up event is on city property, you may be required to obtain a special permit from the city, so check with your local government before you set up on a public sidewalk!!!(a radio station can help you with contact info for this one too!)
