I was browsing the forum and read a few posts about fees escalating and having to raise prices. It’s getting obscene what people are charging for event fees. Bumbershoot in Seattle wants $3250, plus 15% on all sales above $4000 in sales. Add to that, $255 for the county fee for an event, and you barely have your cost of fees covered with the initial sales before the commission kicks in……..
Sounds like they want you to work for them and not for you. Imagine how many customers you have to serve per minute to hit the break-even mark, and then they want 15% over $4000? Screw them. Let ’em find other suckers that will most likely work their asses off for three days to earn very little and risk losing a whole lot.
