What is Musicians Insurance?

Musicians insurance covers claims that may arise from your performance or operations during an event. For example, if a club patron injures themselves by tripping over your equipment or you damage a venue, musicians insurance could help cover the costs of these claims.

Musicians insurance provides coverages for your general liability and public liability needs. Our policy provides general liability insurance for bands as well as individual musicians.

Do Musicians Need Public Liability Insurance?

Yes. Musicians insurance is an important component of your business and is designed to protect you should you be sued as a result of your business operations. You could be held liable for claims that include injuries, illnesses, or damages arising from your entertainment services. Claims can arise from guests, venues, vendors, or other participants. You may also be named in claims against the venue and may not be extended coverage under their policy.

How Much Does it Cost?

A basic 1–3 day general liability insurance policy starts at $59. That’s your best option if you just need coverage for an event. If you know you’ll need coverage for events throughout the year, an annual policy would be your best choice for saving money. An annual policy starts at $199 with options to pay in full or $16.58 per month. 

You also have the option to protect your property. Our Equipment & Gear Coverage, also known as Inland Marine Insurance, protects instruments, speakers, and more items that are critical for your music. You can choose $4,000 in coverage for $3.33 per month or $10,000 in coverage for $5.00 per month. This coverage includes a $250 deductible. 

Some venues require you to list them as an additional insured. This coverage can be added to your policy free of charge. You can get your quote in less than 10 minutes.
