Hire the Weeknd for your very special event or occasion.
The Weeknd is heavily influenced by 1980s music, and credits the video game, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002) for “opening my eyes” to the music of that era. “I’ve always had an admiration for the era before I was born”, he said in an interview for BILLBOARD. “You can hear it as far back as my first mixtape that the ’80s – Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cocteau Twins – play such a huge role in my sound.”
The Weeknd has named Deftones as one of his influences during the making of House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence. He has also cited Lana Del Rey, David Bowie, the Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, DeBarge, 50 Cent, Wu-Tang Clan, and Eminem as influences and inspirations.
The Weeknd often sings in a falsetto register, exhibiting an enticing tone. J. D. Considine finds his singing’s “tremulous quality” similar to Michael Jackson but writes that he eschews Jackson’s “strong basis in the blues” for a more Arabic-influenced melisma. The Weeknd possesses a wide light-lyric tenor vocal range, which spans more than three octaves.
The Weeknd‘s discography spans R&B, pop, hip hop, dance, alternative and new wave genres. His work is generally categorized as alternative R&B, due to his contributions in broadening the genre’s musical palette to incorporate indie and electronic styles.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE THE WEEKND?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire THE WEEKND for an event?)
(i.e., what is THE WEEKND booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for THE WEEKND, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
