How much are artists paid?
Your Total Pay is comprised of our Minimum Guaranteed Payscale (listed below), Fan Tips, and Bonus Pays. You also should take into consideration the extra Perks we offer on top of your Total Pay. Below we have listed the Average Payment and Typical Perks you may receive based on how many fans you draw to the show.
YOUR PAYMENT IS ALWAYS GUARANTEED
For Afton shows, you are guaranteed to be paid what is owed to you no matter what, even if the show is a complete loss for the club and for us.
Your Total Payment = Minimum Guaranteed Pay Scale + Bonus Pays + Any Fan Tips
YOU ARE ALWAYS PAID BASED ON YOUR TOTAL DRAW
You will always get paid based on your Total Draw for each show. This includes Your Pre-Sale Online Tickets + Your Pre-Sale Physical Tickets + Your Door Draw. We tally each person that pays at the door, so we always know exactly what each act’s total draw is for each show.
WE PAYOUT AS MUCH AS WE CAN TO OUR ARTISTS
We are a nationwide concert company that books over 1,000+ acts every month, so there are considerable overhead expenses on our end to sustainably book these local artists on a consistent basis. This is why it takes a lot of time, money, and staff hours to make every show happen. On top of our overhead, there are expenses on the club’s end that must also be recouped.
This is why there is no money to pay you with if you draw poorly (or no fans at all). As you draw more and more fans we are able to exponentially pay you more. As long as you are drawing well (or at least decent), your payment will be on par if not better than any other entity we have seen that books local artists. Many times we pay the best when it comes to all ages or underage shows.
