How much would it cost to put on a benefit concert?

Home More advice Music

I have a few details.
- I am trying to put together a show at a venue in Austin, TX called Mohawks for charity.
- The main artist charges $5,000 but may give a discount if the proceeds go to charity.
- I know a few local artists who will play for free.
I DON'T know how much booking at Mohawks would cost me. I have never done anything like this before. So, to anyone who has experience, how much would just the outside stage area at this venue run me? I don't want to contact them because I don't have anything finalised yet, as I do not really have a rough estimation of the cost. Does anyone have any ideas? And do venues like these ever discount if all proceeds go to charity?
Thanks!
