The final Antibalas booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Antibalas charge for an event. An example fee to book Antibalas is in the starting range of $15,000-$24,999. 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.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the Antibalas agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Antibalas manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Antibalas for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Antibalas agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Antibalas, 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 Antibalas 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 Antibalas, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
