This is how you notify GEMA about music in public
Using music in public
If you use music in public, you can do so in many different ways. Your audience may include many people or just a few. That depends whether you are planning a concert, a party or a parade, or whether you intend to play background music in a restaurant, hotel, trading venue or another public place. Determine the type of your music use, calculate the price and submit your music use notification in one go.

Für Künstlerinnen und Künstler ist die GEMA eine starke Partnerin
ela. | Songwriterin und Künstlerin
Die GEMA vertritt nicht nur meine Urheberrechte als Künstlerin, sondern auch die Nutzungsrechte meiner Werke, deshalb ist diese Institution für mich eine der wichtigsten. Denn genau das gibt mir die Sicherheit, mich als Songwriterin zu entfalten.
Jonathan Zelter | Interpret und Autor
Ich liebe es, neue Songs zu schreiben, meine Musik-Texte im Radio zu hören, im TV zu sehen oder live zu erleben - darauf bin ich jedes Mal auf's Neue stolz. Damit ich von meiner Musik leben und weiter kreativ sein kann, habe ich die GEMA an meiner Seite.
Ambre Vallet | Songwriter & Artist
Especially in today's digital world, it is important for artists like me that our rights are respected. GEMA gives me this security, is always there for me and I can fully concentrate on my creativity.
Diana Goldberg | Songwriter & Artist
It's important for me that my social media community grows with me and gets an early glimpse at the creation of my songs. GEMA gives me the assurance that nobody else can claim my music as theirs.
AVAION | Electro-Musician
To me, GEMA means having a steady and reliable partner on my side who ensures that performers receive their due income. I could not imagine a music industry without GEMA.
Zoé | musician
As an artist, I can and want to earn money with my music. GEMA is a strong partner in this respect!
Diamonds | rock band
We are all GEMA members since we want our music to be protected in terms of copyright and receive fair royalty payments for our works. You are really doing a great job. Thank you GEMA!
Gwen Cobain | musician and songwirter
I am a member because I want to be able to live well off my music. I also consider copyright to be a very valuable asset and want to protect my songs. On top of that, I would like to increase the currently low proportion of women at GEMA.
Sofia Stark | singer songwriter
I have been a GEMA member for half of my life: When I was in the teenage band “Debbie Rockt” back in 2007, GEMA was the only entity thanks to which I got money for my (songwriting) work.
Christin Henkel | composer & songwriter
Considering the multitude of broadcasts and performances, I would have lost the overview long ago. But no matter whether it’s royalties for live concerts, radio or television, GEMA takes care of it. I am glad that my rights as a composer are represented here.
Fabian Lang | Komponist und Produzent
Gerade in einer Zeit, in der die Musikindustrie durch Digitalisierung und Streaming im größten Umbruch seit der Erfindung der Tonaufnahme steckt, ist eine starke GEMA zum Schutz der Urheber für mich enorm wichtig.
