How To Hire The Weeknd For A Private Party Or Special Event!
GRAMMY AWARD winning Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally as The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer-songwriter and record producer.
Known for his sonic versatility and dark lyricism, his music explores escapism, romance, and melancholia, and is often inspired by personal experiences. He has received numerous accolades, including four Grammy Awards, 20 Billboard Music Awards, 17 Juno Awards, six American Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, and nominations for an Academy Award, a Latin Grammy Award, and a Primetime Emmy Award.
Among the world’s best-selling music artists with more than 75 million records sold, The Weeknd holds several streaming and BILLBOARD chart records. He is the first artist to simultaneously debut on the top three on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, while “Blinding Lights” is the longest-charting song in Billboard history.
Often considered as a prominent figure in contemporary popular music, The Weeknd was listed by TIME magazine as one of the world’s most influential people in 2020. An advocate for racial equality and food security, he was appointed a World Food Programme Goodwill Ambassador in 2021.
The Weeknd cites Michael Jackson, Prince, and R. Kelly as his main musical inspirations. He has attributed Jackson’s music as key in spurring him to be a singer, referencing the lyrics to “Dirty Diana” as an example. His high-flying vocal style was influenced by Ethiopian singers such as Aster Aweke. He grew up listening to a variety of music genres, including soul, hip hop, funk, indie rock, and post-punk.
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 over 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.
