Music societies

Music societies are associations whose members get together to play music in their free time. Such societies include brass band clubs, choirs, tambourine societies, local folklore groups and orchestras staging their own amateur concerts and events (not as a main occupation).

Certain associations have concluded an overall contract with SUISA and have thus acquired the concert and event licences for themselves and their members. If you are a member of such an association, then you benefit from reduced fees through your association and do not as a rule need to obtain any licences.

If you are not sure whether your association has concluded a contract with SUISA, ask us  (contact).

Here is the list of the larger associations which have signed a contract with SUISA:


In the following sections you will find licensing information for your own concerts on the one hand, and for your dances and entertainment events on the other.
