French band Yelle gained popularity on Myspace with their first song, "Je veux te voir." The group, made up of Julie Budet as Yelle, Jean-François Perrier as GrandMarnier, and Tanguy Destable as Tepr, originally meant the song to be a parody of the misogynistic lyrics of French hip-hop. To create their debut album "Pop Up" in 2007, they secured a contract with Source Etc. after the song's popularity began to span international lines.
Despite having only French lyrics, the album became a global hit and was praised by AllMusic for its glitzy production, clever songwriting, and Budet's electrifying performance. Over the course of three years, the band made numerous trips to non-French speaking nations to promote their music.
GrandMarnier and Tepr produced Yelle's following albums, "Safari Disco Club" in 2011 and "Complètement fou" in 2014, however they also worked with well-known American producer Dr. Luke on the latter. The group has remained devoted to singing only in French in order to preserve their own style. They are noted for their witty and biting lyrics.
Despite their linguistic barrier, Yelle has a devoted following of listeners all across the world. Yelle has grown to be one of France's most adored and well-known pop acts thanks to their sleek production, catchy tunes, and contagious energy..

An example fee to book Yelle is in the starting range of $25,000-$39,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Yelle for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Yelle agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Yelle, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Yelle booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Yelle, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
