Wedding DJs Should Say “I Do” To DJ Insurance

Cherish, Honor, & Protect

As a wedding DJ, you need more than a repertoire of romantic songs and a classy tux—you need DJ general liability insurance.

Why Do Wedding DJs Need DJ Insurance?

The short answer is to protect you and your DJ business from expensive lawsuits and third-party claims. Plus, the wedding venue may require you to add them as an additional insured to protect them from your liability.

Insured DJ at an Event

At this point, you may be thinking, “that won’t happen to me,” or “it’s my buddy’s wedding, he won’t sue.”

So, let’s play the “what if?” game for a minute.

What if . . . you damage the floor at the wedding venue while you are setting up your equipment?

Could you pay for the repairs?

What if . . . the bride stumbles over your cords and breaks her ankle on her big day?

Are you prepared to cover her costs? (Is your buddy still going to be your buddy after your cords screw up his wedding night and he spends it at the ER with her?)

What if . . . you set up a fog machine and a wedding guest slips on the condensation from the machine.

Could you afford the lawsuit?

Now take a look at your bank account balance. Do the numbers in your bank account reflect your ability to pay a lawyer or other court costs, for property repairs or replacements, or other claims? Are you willing to put your personal assets on the line?

Did you answer “no”? That is why you need DJ insurance.

Did you answer “yes”? Great, we’re happy for you, but does paying lawyers, venue owners, and other claimants sound like a fun way to spend your money? Didn’t think so. You need DJ insurance.

What Insurance Do Wedding DJs Need?

DJ Insurance at a Wedding

This depends upon your wedding DJ operations. Are you a weekend warrior or a DJ wedding professional? Is this a one-time event, or do you DJ multiple weddings a year? Do you need to insure your DJ equipment? Do you need professional liability in addition to general & public liability? Does the venue require you to carry general liability insurance?
