GUEST,John Robinson Performers fees (% or flat fee?) (328* d) RE: Performers fees (% or flat fee?) 19 Feb 07


Just to throw another spanner in the works ...

Outside of the folk world, the indie/rock/americana/et al scene is populated by venues offering "the door less £amount", where £amount varies between £60 to £100. If you take less than that on the door, you pay them the balance.

The worst deal I've seen is at a Scottish hotel that has established itself as a "proper venue". The deal? The hotel takes the first £100 through the door and 30% of the rest. Being a hotel they of course offer artists accomodation ... at a discounted rate!

And to think I gave up the day job to do this ......
