Superstar Prince will be paid $4 million (GBP2 million) to perform at the Coachella Valley Music + Arts Festival, according to U.S. reports.
The singer will headline Saturday night at the three-day music event in California, which begins on 25 April (08).
But he was only added to the festival line-up in a bid to increase ticket sales, according to PerezHilton.com.
A source tells the website, "Prince was a late addition to the line-up. The promoters added him to try and sell more tickets and make up for a less than stellar - in comparison to years past - roster of performers.
"The exact amount Prince is getting paid for his Coachella performance is $4.8 million."
