Most artists will either directly or indirectly join this organization, so their music falls under these rules.
There are some exceptions with artists either selling their music completely on their own and possibly explicitly giving you rights for broadcast or public performance, or artists that even make their music available for free under a Creative Commons license that grants you these rights.
Note that these copyright organisations often don't know much about these alternative licenses, so it may be still be required to notify them about your event before, and possibly only recover the costs afterwards once they get the playlist and you can prove that it is not music from any of their members.
