Speaking: PPL: Get Played, Get Paid

15:30 – 14:30

UK music licensing company PPL are supporting this year’s Industry Takeover All Dayer. PPL licenses recorded music in the UK when it’s played in public (shops, bars, nightclubs, offices) or broadcast (BBC, commercial radio, commercial TV), and ensures that revenue flows back to its members. These include both indie and major record labels, together with performers ranging from grassroots artists through to established session musicians and globally recognised talent. In 2020 PPL collected £225.7 million. At Industry Takeover, PPL alongside a panel of experts, will share their knowledge and experience around getting paid in the music industry. We’ll also be exploring the creative elements of developing a radio-worthy song.
