What is a Distributable Event (DE)?

This applies to Australia and New Zealand.

A ‘DE’ is a large scale promoted concert/festival/event that takes place in Australia or New Zealand, where APRA AMCOS (The Australian Performing Rights Organization) licenses the promoters of the event directly.

A Distributable Event usually takes place in venues where live music is the sole purpose of the venue, such as venues for hire and arenas.
