Tariff review of festivals and concerts closes at midnight, 30 September 2015
The deadline for responses to PRS for Music’s consultation on the terms of its Popular Music Concerts Tariff (‘LP’) closes at midnight tonight [30 September, 2015].
The consultation commenced on 13 April 2015 for an initial 8 week period, before an extension was granted until 30 September 2015 following a request from the Concert Promoters Association (CPA).
The consultation process welcomed industry-wide views from across the live music sector, with Paul Clements, Commercial Director, PRS for Music commenting:
“From the outset, the aim of the consultation has been to conduct a comprehensive review of the live music industry, and I would like to thank our members and customers for their considerations throughout this consultation period. We look forward to reviewing all responses received.”
PRS for Music will conduct a thorough review of all consultation responses and will release a summary of these responses later in the autumn.
