the band will get the better part of a 70 / 30 or 80 / 20 split of ticket sales above and beyond the flat fee guarantee. plus meals and hospitality. The venue will also get between 15 - 20 % of all merch sales.

This has been my experience anyway


Most owners get to keep all of the food/snack/drink sales in the building during the show, before and after ... they most likely would not survive very well without it, since the food cost in those is about 35% and the drink cost is about 25% and those are massive revenues that cover the employees and anything extra needed.

The splits are usually the difference between a place making it or not, and doing well or not. But the larger number of folks, does help the equations a lot ... it goes like this ... you took in 2000 folks at 10 bux, and the electricity for the whole night still cost 1200bux ... the electricity would still be the same if you only tool 800 folks at 10 bux, so now you can see some serious disparity in the way finances can help your venue succeed.
