PRS for Music has extended the deadline for its formal customer consultation on its royalty rates for popular music events in the U.K.

In response to requests from some organizations, PRS for Music has decided to extend the 12-week consultation period by a further eight weeks. The deadline for responses is now Oct. 31.

"PRS for Music realizes that the original consultation period overlaps with the busy summer season for some of our customers," said Debbie Mulloy, commercial director public performance sales, in a statement.

"We're happy to extend the consultation period by eight weeks to make sure all our customers have the opportunity to let us know their views and ideas".

The consultation details are here.
