Pubs & Bars Music Licence
Pubs & bars use music in a number of different ways.
Whether it’s live performances, DJs, music segments in your quiz or playing background music via audio devices and TVs, you’ll usually need TheMusicLicence for your pub or bar.
By obtaining TheMusicLicence you’ll be able to play PRS for Music and PPL music legally and enjoy its benefits whilst ensuring that its creators are fairly rewarded for their work.

Your background music choices can create that ‘feel good’ mood and encourage customers to stay, and return!
