Isn't this where the speaker wires get accidently plugged into the genny?

And FWIW, being a DJ won't get you laid at Burning Man either.

nobody wants another DJ.
the people who DO like that shitty DJ music dont want a new DJ either... of course, because they are a DJ, or their best friend is and WOW, they do WICKED SUNRISE SETS.
so really.. nobody wants any extra DJs.. not even DJs (they dont want the competition)
just bring yourself.
enjoy the hundreds of other DJs.....
Please don't think that the response that was elicited from the minimal information in your original post reflects in any manner what you'll experience on the playa. BRC is full of absolutely wonderful, welcoming people, including many of the people on ePlaya who are incredible contributors to the actual event and warmly friendly in person! Parties have music, most people realize this, please have your camp throw whatever parties you and your campmates desire. Play whatever music you guys and gals like during your parties, everyone has different tastes.
Last year, we were beside a cool, small camp that blasted out some hour long sets of ABBA and B52's onto our street, "maybe" ignoring the bureaucracy's rules, while acting thoroughly within the original spirit of this event in the desert. Heck, to ignore the bureaucracy's rules is why the event moved to the desert in the first place. Everyone who wanted to go by on our street had to dance through our crowd, fun times for anyone who liked interactivity and participation! And, yes, there were a few neighbors, mostly older, who said, "Next year I'm camping in Hushville." To each, their own, which is one of the beauties of the city and of the event, most everyone can find what they enjoy, as well as contributing and participating in whatever manner may move them.
Best wishes and have a great time on the playa!
(BTW, per your original question, protect the amp from playa dust. When it gets moist, it absolutely destroys electronics, especially any that have high voltage switching circuits/power supplies in them)

I think a lot of people just want to be a part of the bigger spectacle and feel the louder beats. If you had Skrillex on stage jumping and waving his arms around but a very minor local DJ controlling the music behind the scenes, very few people in the huge crowd would know the difference.

3 couples, one sound system, one tiny art car with huge sound system,
ugly, angry music.
They'd turn on the system, then drive away in the car.
Hours later they'd return, park the car aiming into the neighbors' art installation,
run awful sound, to no one.
They were never in camp,
ugly, angry sound ran all the time.
(except when neighbors unplugged the system)
We called them 'Sliver of noise'.
Don't be this guy.
