The whimsical indie pop group Scouting for Girls formed in 2005 in London, playfully modeling their name after the Boy Scout Handbook (Scouting for Boys), published in the early years of the 20th century. Members Greg Churchouse, Peter Ellard, and Roy Stride signed with Epic Records in early 2007 and released their first single, "It's Not About You," that June. Soon after, the trio's self-titled debut reached the top slot on the U.K. album charts thanks to the popularity of such singles as "She's So Lovely," "Elvis Ain't Dead," and "Heartbeat." Scouting for Girls returned to the studio in 2009 and the following year released their second album, Everybody Wants to Be on TV, on Epic. In 2012, they issued the single "Summertime in the City," which heralded the release of their third studio album, The Light Between Us. The following year they compiled their Greatest Hits, which featured four U.K. Top Ten singles from the band's three albums and included new material and single "Millionaire." The trio embarked on a tour in conjunction with the compilation's release, including a night at London's Royal Albert Hall, and went on to play a host of summer festivals in 2014, alongside support slots with supergroup McBusted. Lead songwriter Roy Stride has also had success with song credits for hit acts such as One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Alexandra Burke. In 2015, Scouting for Girls returned with their fourth studio effort, Still Thinking About You, featuring the single "Life's Too Short." The group celebrated their tenth anniversary in 2017 with an exclusive show at London's intimate Bush Hall. At the end of the year, they also put out the hits collection Ten Add Ten. The album featured ten tracks from their back catalog and ten newly recorded tracks to complement them. The resulting tour found the trio playing to their biggest crowds yet while touring behind the album, spurring them on to make their fifth studio album, 2019's Trouble with Boys, which sought to recapture the energy of their debut.
Scouting For Girls
How is the technology arranged?
Most well-known artists perform through a tape act. This means that there are no musicians present. Each artist has a technical rider that is shared in advance to ensure requirements can be met. This states exactly what the famous artist needs to perform.
How much do famous artists cost?
The prices of well-known artists vary enormously. For a semi-famous folk singer you can pass an amount from £1000. Well-known artists who are only known in the Netherlands or Belgium cost between £2,000 and £15,000. Artists who are also internationally known have a price tag between £15,000 and £50,000. The most popular DJs who are famous worldwide have a starting price of £100,000. Of course, there are exceptions to this price classification. Would you like to know which artists you can book with your desired budget? We are happy to provide you with independent advice on this.

It is important to carefully check whether the well-known artist is available on the indicated date. We will check the availability for you and will send you a proposal based on this. If we indicate that the artist is available, the option will also be fixed. Otherwise it will be clearly indicated.

What is a rider?
A rider is a document in which the wishes and requirements of an artist are recorded. Well-known artists in particular often have a number of wishes, such as their own dressing room, a certain number of bottles of drinks, a meal and so on. In addition to this 'hospitality rider', artists often also have a 'technical rider'. This rider states, for example, which speakers, inputs and monitors are desired. In many cases, the artist's sound engineer takes this himself. He can also plug into your available sound set. On the technical knight you can see whether your sound set meets the artist's requirements. If you don't understand this. No problem, we are happy to help you with this!
