Haim Fired Their Agent Over Unequal Pay at a Festival

  • Haim played a festival last year where they got a low fee, but they were assured this was because people play this festival to increase their radio play.

  • They found out they were paid 1/10th of what a male act billed one spot above them on the lineup was paid.

  • They fired their agent, but are still unsure as to how to ensure pay parity at festivals because of the secrecy surrounding compensation.


Eternal mood: disappointed, but not suprised.
