Festival headliners commanding huge fees
With festival season in full swing, big name headliners can guarantee big crowds for the organisers - but they also come at a price.
The Libertines are reported to have received £1.5m for their stage reunion at Reading and Leeds, while AC/DC - who never perform at festivals - are rumoured to have been tempted to Download for £3m.
The result is that ticket prices for some of the biggest events like Glastonbury are now approaching £200.
