Thread Name: Fees (concert admission prices)
Subject: RE: Fees (concert admission prices)
When an artist is negotiating a gig at a venue both parties are to one extent or another balancing 'risk' against 'reward' and trying to reach a compromise that will be mutually agreeable and beneficial. There are many possible variables in the equation. Basic guarantee, percentage split, venue capacity, admission prices are the usual ones....but there are others.

No deal is the same. Most importantly though, the precise details of the agreed terms are nobody else's business and should never be publicly discussed.

ps I suspect it's still true that the ones who complain most loudly at folk clubs about high admission prices are always the ones who spend most money at the bar.
