“Are you organizing a concert or an event?”

We are happy that you are contributing to a vibrant music scene. As an organizer, it is important that you:

  • Apply for a TONO license ahead of the event
  • Provide us with information on gross revenue from ticket sales and number of visitors after the event is completed
  • Let us know which songs are performed

Based on this information, we calculate the accurate compensation to our members – the rights holders.

“Concert and event” includes all events that use live or recorded music, such as concerts, festivals, Christmas parties, costumer events, job seminars or dance events.

If you need any guidance, please contact us at [email protected]

Register your concert/event


Compensation is calculated by gross box office takings per concert, paid following invoice from TONO. In order for music creators to be rightly compensated, the entire program must be sent to TONO as soon as possible after the concert is held, and with the following information:

  • Organizer’s name and address.
  • Concert venue and date.
  • Title of the musical work, name of composer/arranger/lyricist for each piece performed.

If there is no program, instead use TONO’s music program form. The form must be signed by the concert organizer.
