NEGOTIATION is the key.
Most have standard rates, depending on costs to actually get to your event (travel, accommodation, etc). These people are REAL people and so it is advisable to negotiate the fees. Most importantly, it will depend on the statue of the person you are trying to get. Alecia Keyes’ costs are not the same as the popular rapper in the next town. Sometimes its best to make your initial offer, and if its too low, they will let you knw – so do not make a ridiculously low – or high offer.
