ARTIST FEES FOR WOODSTOCK



Written by Jack Blocker

Ever wondered how much it cost to get Limp Bizkit to play Woodstock '99? Or what fee Primus demanded for the 1994 incarnation? Of course not dummy! You want to know the fees of the big stars at the original Summer of Love in 1969.

More importantly, you want to know if any artists betrayed their anti-establishment ethos by totally fleecing the organisers for cold, hard cash. According to this forum, who dug up the document detailing the costs, no, they didn't really. Hendrix was remunerated the most at $18K, while Quill made a measly $375.

This is most likely because it was still possible to make money from records back then. Check out the rest:

Now I realise the Ultimate Guitar forum isn't the most credible source. However, I'm taking this as fact because the thought of someone fabricating this sort of thing makes me really depressed.
