whoever57 (658626) writes "The UK Times newspaper's "online lab" has put together a graph showing how the various sources and distribution of music revenues have changed from 2004 to 2008. Summary: music publishers have lost out, while artists have gained. Overall revenues have increased, despite (or perhaps because of) the effects of P2P file sharing. The UK's Daily Telegraph also has an article about this"

Venue average revenue take? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#30081872)

I wonder what proportion of the total revenue that goes into venues goes into the Carlings of this world and how much to the local pub (and of the latter, how much is officially recorded). A quick poke around on the web finds:

which suggests 75% to 100% of door takings as being what artists might get (100% isn't as silly as it sounds if a small pub sells more beer).
