10:11 - psykometal Yup. Not to mention property costs. No clue if they own or rent. So if they rent, that's probably an expensive plot to rent since it holds 6 stages and over 50,000 occupants.
10:08 - Spirit Molecule And we're not even talking about production costs, which shoots up with every stage added, so 6 stages would be quite expensive.
10:05 - Spirit Molecule If I remember right, I know Metallica usually charges 100K USD for fly in shows. I'm assuming for festivals their fee might be a little less. But yeah, it is fucking expensive to pull off a festival
09:43 - psykometal That should give you a better idea idea of why said festivals are so epicly expensive. Not to mention the fact that they only happen once a year, for 3 days. They have to make sure they get enough revenue to be able to do it next
09:42 - psykometal I recently learned, through unnamed means, that the really big name bands, like Metallica and such, ask 1 million+ euors to do festival gigs like Wacken and the sort.
