Description

On the one hand, the presentation covers artistic activities in the context of established theaters and concert halls (due to the lack of a relevant register, no claim to completeness is made). The data are based on annual voluntary surveys conducted by Statistics Austria among stage companies and on the annual reports of the Austrian federal theaters. Free groups, orchestras, multi-purpose halls, etc. are generally not covered by primary statistics.

Furthermore, the Austrian collective management organisation of Authors, Composers and Music Publishers (AKM) provides annual tabulations of live music events at which copyrighted music was played, as well as royalty income from the administration of rights to musical works, based on administrative data.
