The requests for the extension of the music broadcast time, which was determined to end at 24:00 during the pandemic process, due to the approaching summer season and the accompanying tourism activity, were evaluated together by the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. The time has been extended until 01:00 at night.
With the circular sent by the Ministry of Interior, the procedures and principles regarding the music broadcasting were reported to the Governorships.

- Provided that there is no inconvenience in terms of peace and tranquility of the people and public rest, and that the determined hours and limit values are observed, live music can be broadcast in entertainment venues (music made with real instruments and/or voices or by using a tape or electronically amplified sound source) by obtaining the permission of the authorized administrations,

As a result of the joint evaluations made by our Ministry, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change, and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, new decisions regarding music broadcasts were taken and reported to the governorships.
Here are the new decisions;
Without prejudice to the provisions of the relevant law/legislation, the time to broadcast music throughout the country has been extended until 01:00.
In the audits to be carried out by law enforcement units, it will be especially looked at whether the company has live music permission and whether music is broadcast outside the determined time interval.
During the inspections of law enforcement units, necessary notifications will be made to the competent authorities about businesses and/or persons broadcasting music above the environmental noise level determined in the relevant legislation in a way that disrupts the peace and tranquility of the public and disturbs the environment.
