‘Live Wednesday’: live performances on Wednesday nights

‘Live Wednesday’ is a promotional initiative designed by SIAE and dedicated to owners of establishments (with VAT identification number) that wish to organise in their establishments (with a maximum capacity of 200 people) Wednesday live music shows performed by bands and songwriters under the age of 31, with an original music repertoire.

You just have to register for SIAE online services, access “Live Wednesday” portal, apply for the licence and wait for the concerned band and/or songwriters to fill in the program logs with their works. Once this last step is completed,

the owner will be granted the licence. Digital communication of program logs allows for the distribution of author’s rights.

The discounted fee for “Live Wednesday” promotional initiative is only EUR 25.00 (plus the VAT amount), with no fee payable to SIAE.

Which artists can perform?

Songwriters under the age of 31 who are members of SIAE and perform a 100% original repertoire. More than one songwriters under the age of 31 can perform in the same show, provided that they are assigned an additional music schedule.

Also bands with a 100% original repertoire can perform, provided that the author of the repertoire is under the age of 31 and is a member of the band.

Which establishments are qualified to host this kind of event?

All establishments with a maximum capacity of 200 people and providing free access to the public with no minimum drink purchase requirement.

Neither entrance fee nor minimum drinks purchase requirement.

With ‘LiveWednesday’, organising original music live shows and performances in your club will be far easier and cheaper, also offering opportunities to new talents.

The initiative is currently being tested. The first institutional partner is Apulia region. At the end of the testing stage, our main goal is to gain the participation of other local administrations in order to spread

the initiative throughout Italy.
