Hey friends !

 

I was wondering how does touring works in the psybient music world.

 

Are all artists paid for playing on festival stages ? In what kind of range of money ?

What is the role of agents exactly for artists touring on other continents than theirs ?

How are the psybient events in general run in terms of programing ?

What does make artists economically OK with touring ?

 

Thank you for any enlightening you'll bring to me on this subject.

 

Hugs

 a quick answer. 

 

>>>>>> Are all artists paid for playing on festival stages ? In what kind of range of money ?

in Europe there is no rule about this.

sometimes artists are getting payed + road expenses,

sometimes nothing only road.

sometimes nothing.

 

big festival usually pay. I heard about fees 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1000, 3000 euros for a performance. 

 

It all depends on your quality / fame.

 

 

>>>>> What does make artists economically OK with touring ?

good gigs, not many expenses. For example if you tour a lot and don't have a rent to pay is OK.

if you have an expensive rent to pay i think is hard to live with touring only.

 

>>>>> What is the role of agents exactly for artists touring on other continents than theirs ?

they find you bookings, take care of negotiation and your flights. 

 

 

good luck with this direction if you will take it :)

great man, had a chance to share stage and chat with him.

the best is two find him 2 big festivals to share the flight costs and few smaller events for fun and pocket money and more exposure :)
