Licences for Restaurants

Small restaurants with a maximum of 200 customer seats and large restaurants with more than 200 customer seats

If music is playing in the restaurant, a licence is required. The type of licence required depends on a few factors:

  • Does the music come from a recording or is it played live?
  • What is the size of your restaurant?
  • Would you like to report event information to Teosto monthly or provide an estimate of the whole year’s music use in advance?

PLEASE NOTE! If the music comes from a recording (background music, DJ, karaoke), you also need a Gramex licence from Musiikkiluvat.fi.
