Is the festival attempting to collect a 15% FEE to the festival or a 15% TAX to the IRS? If it's a fee, they are merely assholes. If it's a TAX, they are making the performers their employees, and will themselves be responsible for paying social security/medicare taxes on tips, and providing each performer with a W4 form to fill out on the commencement of employment and an income/tax statement at the end of the year. And they're still assholes.
