Getting the cost to book metal bands.

Hey Everyone,

Well first you need to know, i work for an event organizing company, i already do local shows for local bands. However, i would like to get international bands to play here. I am not going for big bands as i dont have enough money for them. And since i dont have a specific band in mind i would like to know if there is any source where i can check the financial requirements of bands and so.
I know the price is negotiable and depends on the country/ the show it self and other factors but i know bands have a price that they usually ask for in general.

Any idea if such sources exist and what are they?
Thank you

You're best bet is to just ask the band on their social media. There's not likely going to be a source like you have in mind for any metal bands other than big time bands like Metallica or whatever. You really need to have a specific band in mind and just ask them. Also always deal directly with the band whenever possible since agents and promoters will charge you all kinds of fees.

Yeah, best bet is to send them a message on facebook or something and inquire. One thing some promoters (from my experience) assume is that the band will pay for travel. I'll guarantee you that you'll have to pay for the airfare/travel fees of pretty much any band, so keep that in mind.

Also you'll have to put them up for the night, so unless they are cool with crashing at your place, that means a hotel room as well.
