Major festivals

Major festivals

Concerts at the major festivals generate huge revenues every year. Hence, the value of each individual concert played here is high.

The amount depends on the scene you are playing on

At the six biggest festivals in Denmark – Roskilde Festival, Smukfest, Northside, Tinderbox, Copenhell, and Jelling – your distribution will depend on which stage you play. The concerts on the larger stages with large capacity receive higher distributions than concerts given on smaller stages. We adjust our distributions with reference to factors such as stage size and audience capacity so that the concerts which attract the largest audiences also get the largest contributions.

Examples from festivals held in 2023

Below you can see examples from the major festivals. The amounts depend on the actual music consumption observed at the festivals in any given year, so they are likely to vary from one year to the next.

How we calculate distributions if the festival is not the concert promoter

If the festival where the concert was held did not act as concert promoter, the agreement entered into with the actual promoter and their payment to us will determine your distribution.

Distributions depend on duration

The distributions directly reflect the playing times involved. The total amount distributed for each concert is divided up between the individual music works according to the duration of each work. If the playing time is not stated on the concert report, we use the duration stated by the author when we originally received reporting about the work.

If the concert lasts less than 40 minutes, or if copyrighted music accounts for less than 40 minutes of the total playing time, we will set the duration of the concert at 40 minutes when making our calculations.
