What is Performers and Entertainers Insurance?
Performers and entertainers insurance covers claims that arise from your operations during a performance or accidents that occur while you’re entertaining. General liability protection is intended for bodily injury and property damage for your customers and your venues. Opt for purchasing personal coverage rather than relying on the venue’s policy.
For venues requiring larger coverage limits, excess liability coverage amounts are available. And add venues or employers as an additional insured on your policy at any time.

Yes. Performers and entertainers insurance is an important component of your business. It protects your financial assets if you were to 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 services.
The legal costs alone from claims like these can be financially devastating. With entertainers insurance, you’ll have the protection you need just in case something goes wrong.
You never know when you will need to file a claim because the performance and entertainment industries can be so unpredictable. Claims happen primarily because of damages or injury caused to a third party.
Examples of recent claims:

- Personal Injury: Santa Claus is a tricky gig when there are frightened little kids, when they squirm to get away, you could end up with a claim for injuries sustained. We also know that cords can be a tripping hazard for attendees at your events. Injuries sustained are common and frequent claims that you will face as a performer.
- Inland Marine: Equipment and gear are not covered under your General Liability policy, but there is an additional option you can purchase for the chance your equipment sustains damage at an event. We often see claims resulting from weather damage (rain) or theft of an insured’s personal property.

You have the option to add this coverage, along with the right to reimbursement for the costs of your actual gear. Starting at less than $6 per month, you can easily add this coverage at any time to your policy.
