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
