A couple of weeks ago an artist contacted me about performing at SXSW and mentioned that a promoter wanted to charge him $3,000 dollar to perform on a "guaranteed spot with an audience". My mind was instantly blown. I had heard the horror stories about paying to perform at festivals, but never had I heard a price soooo high. That brought me to this week's episode of The Str8OutDaDen Podcast. Paying to perform...does it really maximize exposure?
We break down why people charge to perform, what really happens when artist pay to perform, give you some advantages of paying to perform and most importantly we talk alternatives of paying to perform. Great info here. So you know the drill...sit back...Relax and Listen!
