AFEM Presents – Get Played Get Paid: How the rise of Music Recognition Technology at DJ Events could put money in your pocket

Industry 2019

Panel info:  AFEM’s Get Played Get Paid campaign has a simple objective  - when electronic music is played in clubs or at festivals by DJs, the people who make the music and own the rights should be paid the royalties due. Clubs and festivals all over the world pay license fees to Performing Right Organization (PROs) and neighboring right organizations (NROs) for the music played at events, but attaining accurate DJ setlist information has, historically, proved a challenge for these organization.  Without comprehensive music reporting, the royalties cannot be paid out accurately to creators and rightsholders of the music actually played. Over the 4 years since our Get Played Get Paid campaign began, we have seen a growing number of PROs & NROs adopting or trialing Music Recognition Technology services for the purpose of identifying the music played. This panel will provide insights into how royalties are generated from DJ events, the different technology solutions being adopted, and the challenges involved in the process of creating accurate royalty payments.

Testimonials

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.


Carl Cox

DJ/Intec Records

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!
