A circus show lives not only from the breathtaking and entertaining performances of its artists but from the music accompanying them. The licences for music use are delivered to circus companies in accordance with Common Tariff Z.

The licence fee is a flat fee per tent and category of tent and is equal to at least CHF 0.022 and maximum CHF 0.197 per seat and show. If you do not have your own musicians but play sound recordings, you have to pay an additional fee of between 2% and 26.25% of the authors rights for the artists and record companies.

At the end of the season, we require you to provide a list of the works played so that we can distribute the revenues to the beneficiary artists and publishers.

For children's circuses, zoos and animal parks, please refer to the tariff and fact sheet for licensing information.


Tariffs and fact sheets are not available in English. Please select another language.
