Ever wonder how much it costs to book your favorite band?

Thanks to Degy Entertainment, a booking agency, we can give you a rough idea: an anonymous source passed along a list of the rates suggested by the artists’ agents per show, pre-expense.

(Note: as a reader pointed out, these are asking prices from a third-party booking agency that specializes in college shows; as such, the numbers are likely inflated. Actual prices negotiated by many of these performers are contingent on a variety of factors.)

Before you read these lists, a few things should be clarified. First of all, they aren’t perfect: a few acts are out of place, or suspiciously off — we’ll try to address these below. You’ll also notice that there are a few anomalies, and acts that aren’t music-related (i.e. Myth Busters, who you can rent for a mere $100k); Degy books speakers and corporate entertainment acts too, and a few slipped into these listings. Lastly, keep in mind that these lists aren’t comprehensive.

Below, we’ve organized the artists by purported booking fees from highest ($100k+) to lowest ($1,000).
