What is APRA?
If your Adelaide Fringe event contains recorded or live music, you’ll need to obtain a license from APRA AMCOS and PPCA to ensure you’re crediting the artist correctly in accordance with The Australian Copyright Act of 1968.
Same goes if you are an Adelaide Fringe venue playing background music in your bar, pub, theatre or gallery.
It’s the presenter’s responsibility to ensure that all relevant permissions, licenses and permits are obtained for their event – and this includes APRA licenses.
In Australia, APRA manages the performance and communication rights of its members. APRA issue licenses for recorded and live music performed in a dramatic context, in films, in pubs/bars, and all other events where music is utilised. If you use recorded or live music in your event or at your venue, you should get in contact with APRA or check out the types of licenses available here.
