Step by step to the price for the music

With the price calculator, you first determine the price and can then register the music right away. Directly via the Online Portal. All the relevant details are queried in a step-by-step process and your price is calculated to the point.  Did you know? You can also use the price calculator just for information, and complete the notification process later.

Manage your events and setlists

My events

If you go to My events, you can check out the current processing status of each of them.  You can submit setlists or request a change. One way to make things easier: If you select copy registration, you apply the data for one event to another. 

My setlists

In the case of live events, it is vital we receive a setlist (playlist). The service My setlists helps you with this.  You may use it for the following:

  • submit setlists or re-use them

  • delegate submitting a setlist to the band, if you are the event organiser

  • check whether a setlist has been submitted

  • create contacts for generating setlists

  • download setlists as a pdf

Repertoire search Find GEMA works

The repertoire search provides you the first indication whether a work is part of the GEMA repertoire or not. By using this search, you can also determine the creators and publishers of works in order to get in touch with them e.g. if you are a film producer and want to use music for a film or for a commercial.
