I suspect in many cases it's not that much to do with the artists, more the strats of various mangement, venue, staffing, insurer, promoter, marketer...ect...ect, they will, for the most part, charge what the market will bear.
Prices in general have rocketed last decade or so, I suspect the monetisation of festivals played a large part as well, it's only a short step for a promoter to think 'well if folk will pay that for a festival, will they pay that for 1 or 2 acts? lets find out..'.
i wish that the tickets would just be one price for every artists

agreed, I have little respect for artists who don't do something about this and allow fans to pay extortionate prices.
They don't need respect when they're laughing all the way to the bank and having their accountants singing high praises...
You really think these artists care about their fans?

i looked up shawn mendes ticket prices and it came up with this: Shawn Mendes ticket prices range from $49 to $9499. There are always great deals to be found at Vivid Seats. Currently, Shawn Mendes tickets 2018 start at $49.
It’s fine. If you do like, don’t pay.
