In general, the pay-to-play system is in place throughout most of live music venues in Japan.
The entry charge for the audience which is often of JPY 2,000 or more and venue has a policy for how the entry charge will be shared with performers. Sometimes live music venues do not use this system especially for touring acts.
For local artists, the venue requires each bands to meet a ticket quota except whole hall rental or any arrangement by promoter.
For artists from overseas, we will not adopt our minimum quota system. Except whole hall rental or any arrangement by promoter, the total ticket sales which are collected by us as entry charge will be split between venue and performers by half and half. For merchandise, we require zero % of gross.
Shibuya Milkyway is happy to welcome your bands/artists to play for a gig, second event or after-party at our venue.
