Quick guide for the search
X


  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

How about AC/DC? Are they like 2+ millions?


I doubt that AC/DC would play for less than 2 million ... euros ... and yes, that is a serious guess.


Wow! icon_eek.gif

Why do they bother, after doing 3-4 or four concerts, then? icon_lol.gif


If they ever decide to do any festival gigs ever again (which is highly unlikely or they would have done it years ago) the price might be significantly lower as the expenses on playing a festival gig is neglible compared to setting up a stadium concert with all the roadies, gear, insurance and everything else they have to pay for every gig.

On a stadium concert in the 2M euro range, I'd be surprised if there was more than about 200K euros left for the band to share.

I read somewhere (in a music mag - forget which one) that it cost Metallica one million dollars per day to be on the road. Of course that includes having two complete stages, gear etc, which to a great extend isn't needed for a festival but still...

Yeah, that's probably pretty much the number I was estimating too. And with 3-4 gigs per week, maybe 5, each gig has to cost about 3 million dollars to book (which is about 2 million euro) just to keep the skin on the nose (remember they also have to pay taxes of the booking fee).

its about a guy who knows a booker, that say that they are still "speaking" with Faith No More and Janes addiction and a bigger rock band that will blow people backwards, he couldnt get the last bands name, but he thinks that theyre tour ends the 30rd of june.


This sound promising if its true.



The ONE "bigger" rock band that finishes their european tour the 30th of june and would blow our minds is obviously AC/DC, which makes this rumor a bit unbelievable with all the headliners we already have there won't be enough money for FNM AND this "bigger" rock band.

but, as we all know, hope dies last... i have not given up. not believing but hoping banghead.gif


I don´t really believe in the AC/DC possibility, although it would be cool, I´d still prefer Janes, FNM or Dave Matthews, in that order, more or less.

Anyway, about the financial aspect: danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet mentioned that RF has a music budget of 34 million kroner, divided by roughly 170, that gives 200.000 per act. Obviously some acts are a lot more expensive, but many are a lot less than that, I´d say. Anyone here have any knowledge into booking, that could share a light on what prices we are looking at here? Is Janes a band that would cost a million, 2 million or only 500.000? How about AC/DC? Are they like 2+ millions?


70 000 * 2000 dk (in average) = 1400000000 dkr (1.4 billion)

The budget must be a lot higher! If not, then WHAT THA FUCK icon_eek.gif

Let me guess ... you failed math, right?

70,000 times 2,000 is 140 million ... not 1.4 billion

Danish newspaper Politiken mentioned the amount of 37,5 million as the music budget for this years festival, but we are still in the same ballpark.

Sure. But only for Sunday and they are only sold on site. No presale.

I think they cost DKK 800,- this year ... it's usually a tiny bit lower than half the normal ticket price.

According to their homepage one- and two-day tickets are released closer to the festival.
