    any profits left over after all expenses are accounted for.  Many shows with artists employ a backend deal, where they may get 85% of all profits after expenses, and the promoter gets 15%.   This helps encourage both artists and promoters to promote the show as much as possible.   This sort of arrangement can also be struck between food/art vendors, bar operations, merchandise, or any other element of a festival that brings in income.
