You're a promoter so I'll take your word that you're more informed than I am, but I would frankly be extremely unsurprised at 30k for a band like Death Angel or Exodus, just for the fact that both of those bands have full crews to pay, feed and transport.
Maybe for a one off I could see that. Emphasis on the maybe, and that's huge maybe.
But I know for a fact Death Angel does not ask for that much for normal tour dates. It's usually around 2K
