How much do celebrities cost?
Celebrity fees for making personal appearances vary enormously from individual to individual, and are determined by a number of factors including their media profile, popularity and the time they have available in their schedules to undertake appearances. Unfortunately, there are no rules or set ways of working out a celebrity's fee without having all your event details to-hand and employing an experienced celebrity booking agent to advise you.
So how can you find out how much a celebrity is going to cost? Big-name A-list actors, globally known pop stars and the world's elite sporting legends will, in reality, charge six-figure fees for making an appearance at your event — cutting the ribbon, mingling with your guests and, importantly, gaining you valuable exposure and column inches in the press — whereas at the opposite end of the scale, a domestically-known reality TV star experiencing the Andy Warhol proverbial "15 minutes of fame" may well agree to a fee which is barely into 4-figures, as they're capitalising on their limited career lifespan. The reality of course, is that the majority of celebrity fees will be in the upper 4-figures to low 5-figures, and because of the number of celebrities on our roster we're sure to have someone that's perfect for you.
At NMP Live we book celebrities every day, and it's what we've been doing for many years, so we have a pretty good idea of what you should be paying for a celebrity's services. As a helpful guide, most of the celebrity profiles on our website are placed in a fee group which will give you an approximate idea of the ballpark fee the celebrity will charge, based on a 'typical' personal appearance. However, this can of course change at any time, and often does when their profile suddenly increases due to the success of their latest album, or they win a BAFTA, Golden Globe or Academy Award for their most recent acting role. Call one of NMP Live's friendly booking agents today and we'll guide you every step of the way to securing a celebrity appearance at your next event.
