PRS for Music represents over 95,000 songwriters, performers and music publishers. The society’s role is to ensure they get rightfully paid whenever and wherever their music is used.
Glastonbury is working more closely than ever with PRS for Music in 2013. Almost 80 percent of the songwriters from bands performing on the iconic Pyramid and Other stages this June are PRS for Music members. This makes Glastonbury an extremely important platform for the society’s members, and allows their music to be heard and enjoyed by an audience of millions.
Three percent of each Glastonbury ticket sold goes back to PRS for Music members, providing essential revenue for them to continue creating. This means the 135,000 Glastonbury festival goers purchasing tickets are directly contributing to the growth of the UK live music scene.
