Whether you play the occasional gig or are a stalwart of the live scene, it's time to gather your setlists and get those Performance Reports tidied up. The deadline to submit Performance Reports is 31 July 2018 for any gigs you played since 1 July 2017. And to those of you that submit throughout the year, we salute you!

Not sure what this is all about? Firstly, register your songs because when you play your songs live you are earning APRA Royalties. You just need to give us the details of your gigs: your band/performer name, where and when you performed, and the songs you performed at those venues in setlists.

APRA AMCOS paid out $7.2m in live performance royalties to Australian and New Zealand members who submitted Performance Reports for their gigs during the 2016-17 financial year. That royalty pool was paid to 16,137 members; of those 14,417 were unpublished. That's $2.63 per song for Australian members, which can really add up to help you fund that next tour, book some studio time, or promote your new release.

“It’s always fulfilling after a long year of touring to come home and find your live performance royalties sitting in the bank. I’m really grateful to APRA AMCOS for all the work they put in, working alongside venues, festivals and, of course, artists, to ensure that we are all aware of the value of songs, songwriting and performing,” said Alex Lahey
