Festival acts who are ‘regulars’ or who are ‘back by popular request’

I am just a bit wary of these euphemisms.  Would it be really cynical to suggest that acts who are ‘regulars’ are so because they are cheap…or even play for free. I have seen these ‘regulars’ being at the whole festival, not just a 30 minute spot on a small stage. So they have basically got free tickets for the weekend.

Same goes for ‘back by popular request’.

OK, maybe a bit too cynical .
