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

A setlist provides details on the musical works performed during a live event. That way, we can determine which composers, lyricists and music publishers receive royalties for the live performance. As an event organiser, you thus ensure that those creators whose works were performed during your event actually get paid.

Please submit a setlist for:

  • Concerts
  • Festivals
  • Events with live music


The easiest way you can do this is in our Online Portal under My setlists. Find out more on this, such as how we distribute our collections, under this is how GEMA distributes your money.
