If you want to be a little cooler yet, tuck the skirt up so the pantaloons are showing in the front. You might even be a little cooler with harem pants rather than full-blown pantaloons (1 yard per leg, rather than 2 = less fabric on you!). Short sleeved cholis, though some have skipped the choli and just worn the bra. Im too prone to wardrobe malfunctions for that, though, lol! No turban, and keep your hair in an updo. Wear sandals if you can. And drink LOTS of water, before, during, and after the performance. Its really good if you can find a shady spot to perform, too.
