There are no "cheap" ways of lighting large amounts of space at night unless you happen to find a location with enough natural light.
Some big lights are cheaper than others -- a 10K tungsten is cheaper than a 4K HMI, but the 4K HMI is a little brighter, bluer, and doesn't use as much power.

You may have already shot your music video but if not, check this out.

I shot the night scene with only two Arri 650W Fresnels. I gelled the one light with CTB (motivated by the moonlight) and the other with CTO (motivated by the firelight).
If you're shooting fairly tight shots, you can get away with very few smaller lights like this.
