Showcases for GEMA members

Gather new fans and make it big with your audience! This requires suitable opportunities. That is why we support our members when it comes to performances at popular festivals such as the Long Night of Music, Reeperbahn Festival, c/o pop, the Bards’ Gathering and many more. Each year, we support at least two showcases. As soon as COVID-19 allows us to do so, we’ll hit the stages again!

Interested performers and bands can apply directly by using the online application form for the relevant showcase. (Please only use this channel to apply, do not do so by e-mail or phone.) How many bands or solo artists can perform per showcase depends on the event, usually, the number ranges between one and five.

Tailor-made insurances for you

Music creators have specific requirements and need insurance protection that has been specially adapted to them and their lives. Take advantage of exclusive insurances which are specifically tailored to the music sector and are adaptable to your individual needs such as in the area of legal and copyright holder protection, instrument insurance or third-party liability insurance. We can also offer you the option to take out a pension scheme policy with Allianz.
