What if a venue isn't licensed?
We pay out live performance royalties from the money we collect in venue licence fees. If a venue is unlicensed, we can't guarantee payment for your performance there. However, when you report a performance in an unlicensed venue, our licensing team will be notified immediately.
We'll then make efforts to license the venue so you can be paid. This can take some time, so bear in mind that our usual payment schedule may not apply.
If you'd like to know whether a venue is licensed or not before deciding to perform there, you can easily check online.
