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
