I've been a DJ and dance music producer since the mid 90s and I say that 300k is ridiculous for anyone. I've heard of maybe DJs getting 20k a night, but 300??? I wouldn't even pay the hottest singer that to perform anywhere. WTF
This 300 grand a night stuff is new and is a result of the pissing match between Steve Wynn and the guy that owns all the Hakkasan restaurants worldwide. He showed u to Encore one night, someone was already staying in his preferred room, he wanted them to move the other guest and they refused, so he decided to throw 100 million into a club at the MGM to take business away from the clubs at the Wynn.
Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Steve Aoki all play at Tryst and the clubs at Encore too, and they're all benefitting from the pissing match by getting ridiculous money to do it. The clubs are losing money just trying to suck business from each other.
