Buried in recent press coverage of an L.A. promoter's lawsuit against the city of L.A. for canceling a Tiesto concert at the Convention Center was the DJ's "guarantee." That would be $250,000. And, if it's a guarantee, that sounds like a possible minimum (as well as a possible maximum the promoter would be out if the show doesn't go on).
A quarter mil for a night of DJing? Whoa. I remember when rumor had it that Carl Cox charged $20k plus airfare for a trip to L.A. in the early '00s. And I'm guessing that 250k is minimum for Tiesto since this was said to be a 17,000-person event Halloween weekend. He often plays for much larger crowds.
