What does it cost to use music?

It depends how the music is used, whether live, in the background, on sound recordings or on the internet. Whether many or few people are listening. In order to take this into consideration, there are various GEMA tariffs. It is quick and simple for you to determine your tariff and the fees.

Just use our following options:

  1. Is your query about an event, permanent background music or do you want to use music on the internet? Please use our price calculator. Did you know? If you use music permanently, you can enter into a monthly, a quarterly or an annual agreement.
  2. Or do you want to fix music onto sound recordings or similar carriers? Our page Music fixation and reproduction onto (sound) carriers provides an overview of the relevant tariffs. There, you can select the appropriate tariff and check out a PDF with the corresponding licence fee rates

We also offer a complete tariff overview under tariffs & forms.
