MUSIC USED AT SPECIAL EVENTS
Music often plays a unique role at special events, either as a soundtrack to a performance or production or as the backdrop for dancing, mingling and creating the right atmosphere.
If you are holding a special event or production using recorded music, you need the permission of the owners of the music you use. You can obtain this permission by applying for a Special Event Licence.
This licence applies for ticketed events and events that are by invitation only with no admission fee.
|Ticketed Event||1.65% of Gross Sums Paid for Admission x Music Use Percentage, subject to a minimum fee of $75.00 + GST|
|Event with No Admission Fee||2% of Gross Expenditure on Performers at the Event, subject to a minimum fee of $75.00 + GST|
