On with the Show - PRS for Music offers support to music creators returning to the stage

On with the Show

PRS for Music, the membership organisation that represents over 155,000 songwriters, composers and publishers, has launched ‘On with the Show’, an initiative aimed at providing essential support to music creators as they get back to performing live. 

Via a series of webinars, event appearances and further resources being made available throughout the rest of the year, PRS for Music’s industry experts will be on hand to ensure those returning to the stage have all the information they need to make the most of every performance. 

‘On with the Show: How To - Earn Royalties from Live’ webinars taking place in September, will focus on how members can manage their account via the PRS for Music website, how they can report a live or DJ performance, and how live royalties work.

PRS for Music’s charity partner, PRS Members’ Fund, and the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM), will be running a series of webinars with a focus on creativity and mental wellbeing that will provide a safe space for members to reflect on the past year and their creative practice. These sessions will help members to build confidence and deal with the inner critic, find their voice, understand what drives them, and build a network to stay connected with.

PRS for Music representatives will also be attending the following events and festivals to connect with songwriters and composers, offering advice on returning to the live circuit: Dot-to-Dot Festival, Bristol & Nottingham: 25 - 26 September, Ipswich Sound City: 1 - 2 October, Liverpool Sound City: 1 - 3 October, Wild Paths Festival: 14 - 17 October, Focus Wales: 7 - 9 October and Swansea Fringe: 15 - 17 October.


We know the last 18 months have been incredibly difficult for all music creators, and for those who perform live, the devastating impact of the pandemic has been especially hard. The ‘On with the Show’ initiative is intended to provide support and resources to those finally taking to the stage again, as people slowly start to enjoy live music in a safe environment.
