Jamaican Reggae & Dancehall Artists Overpriced

Jamaican Reggae & Dancehall Artists Overpriced - As a booking

agent, I have been noticing a trend that I think needs to be addressed.

A lot of, if not all, Jamaican reggae and dancehall artists seems to be pricing themselves out of the market.

I do bookings for a few events in Europe. Because I know that most reggae/dancehall acts look to that region for work, I always try to seek out Jamaican talent (both established and emerging) to try to get them on my shows. Sadly, their requirements have gotten so out of hand that I find myself hiring mostly UK and African entertainers.

Reggae and Dancehall music are now being produced all over the world. Therefore, the industry is more competitive. Investors, promoters etc. are no longer just looking to Jamaica for these genres. Granted, Jamaica is still considered the home / leaders in the reggae/dancehall field, but artists must realize that if their fee and entourage is too much then promoters will look elsewhere.

Expecting a promoter to hire and pay you 2,000 euro and up, plus fly you, your manager and someone else, when you have no hit and therefore cannot bring out the crowd, is ridiculous. I hope I have not offended anyone with this article, but I am currently in the process of booking for two upcoming events in that territory and the requests I am getting are so far gone that I had to write this.

For additional information you are more than welcome to email me at info@mjent.net

Thank you,
Maria Jackson
