PRS for Music is working closer than ever with Glastonbury in 2013. We are continuing the great work we do with set list collection to ensure our members are paid accurately for their performances. We are also exploring other mutually beneficial initiatives that can protect and enhance the UK’s live music scene, while increasing public awareness of our society.
PRS for Music represents over 95,000 songwriters, performers and music publishers. Our role is to ensure they get rightfully paid whenever and wherever their music is used.
Almost 80 percent of the songwriters from bands performing on the iconic Pyramid and Other stages this June are PRS for Music members. This makes Glastonbury an extremely important platform for our members, and allows their music to be heard and enjoyed by an audience of millions.
Three percent of each Glastonbury ticket sold goes back to our members, providing essential revenue for them to continue creating. This means the 140,000 Glastonbury festival goers purchasing tickets are directly contributing to the growth of the UK live music scene.
