Bellowhead etc....

Matt I was really making the point that there are people around who will pay 15.00 per head. I am sure the same people will pay proportionately lower prices for proportionally less-well-known acts.

Some time ago I went to see Lau (before the folk awards) at a village hall in the middle of nowhere. That was 12.00 per head.

Now it may be that people will only pay that sort of price for top acts (though Lau and Bellowhead had support) but it does show people will pay.
