How much would it cost to book your favorite band?

How much would it actually cost to book your favorite band for your Birthday? Wedding? Graduation party? Thanks to booking agency Degy Entertainment (via priceonomics) we can have a pretty good idea. The agency have put together a helpful guide of who costs what.

It should be noted that the data is based on asking prices from a third-party booking agency, so the prices may be inflated and different than what a big festival would pay a band after negotiations. (Just take them as estimations.)

With that said, here are some interesting takeaways:

Foo Fighters: $500k

Green Day: $500k

Fall Out Boy: $100-150k

Fun.: $200-400k

Paramore: $125-175k
