We run several services to help members collect royalties from live and DJ performances of their pieces of music. To use these services you will need an online account.
Gigs, Clubs and Small Venues
Make a claim under the Gigs, Clubs and Small Venues if your songs or compositions have been performed in any of the following small venues:
- Music Societies
- Community Centres
- London Underground
Concert Venues and Festivals
If you have performed at a UK concert venue or festival, or completed a tour of UK concert venues, then you can claim for performance royalties by submitting your setlist to our Live Events team.
Applicable concert venues and festivals are typically ones whose principle business is promoting regular musical events and are licensed by us, such as:
- Arenas or other concert halls or venues (for example O2 Academy venues, South Bank Concert Halls, Rock City, Lemon Tree, Borderline, Barfly venues)
- Music or arts festivals (for example Glastonbury, Download, T in the Park)
- Universities or Colleges of Higher Education
- Arts Centres
- Civic Halls
Overseas Live Events – performances outside of the UK
Report your Overseas Live Events if you have performed or had your work performed outside of the UK. We will send these details directly to the relevant local collection society who license and collect any royalties. Typical events and venues include:
- Large concerts and live music venues
- Music Festivals
- Classical concerts
- Small gigs and clubs events
What are the live tariffs outside of the UK?
The live tariff is the licence fee collected by the local society from the promoter or venue of an event to cover the performing rights. These differ according to the territory.
“Actual rate” is the actual licensing rate applied after tariff discounts or other conditions are applied.
“Published tariff” is the method of calculation of the licence fee. This normally consists of a headline percentage rate applied to the box office value, and discounts or other conditions may apply which reduce the rate. There may also be alternative calculation methods which can change the rate.
Login to the members area to see how the licence fee for your performances will be calculated.
