When do I need to submit a setlist (playlist)?

Whenever we receive a setlist we find out which musical pieces were played at a live event. That way, we can determine which composers, lyricists and music publishers receive royalties for the live performance. The responsibility for submitting the setlist usually lies with the event organiser. They can also delegate that task to the musicians.
A setlist is required for:

  • Concerts

  • Festivals

  • Events with live music

Please submit your setlists via the Online Portal under  My setlists . Find out more about this, such as how we distribute our collections, under This is how GEMA distributes your money.

Additional information on your setlist is included in our video (part 1).
