What does insurance for professional musicians cover?

Want to find out even more about our cover? If you're a professional musician and you're wondering about what's included, then we've answered a few questions for you below.

Do I need Public Liability insurance to perform in public?

Many venue owners may require musicians to have Public Liability insurance before they can play gigs, which is why we automatically provide you with up to £1million worth of Public Liability cover. Subject to the terms and conditions of the policy, this can cover potential costs incurred in the event of someone taking you to court for damages you have caused to their property or even an injury to a third-party, whilst going about your musical activity.

What is Public Liability insurance for professional musicians?

Public Liability insurance can protect musicians against potential costs for third-party claims made against you if you injure someone or damage their property whilst performing or going about your musical activity.

For example, if your equipment was to fall and injure a member of the audience, then you may be liable to claims from the injured party. With Public Liability insurance for musicians, subject to the terms and conditions of the policy, your cover can protect you against the costs of these claims. We offer up to £1million in Public Liability insurance as standard and you can also choose to increase this to cover yourself and up to four band members with our £5million Public Liability option.

Do you cover business insurance?

If you’re a professional musician, then we can offer insurance to cover your business. We can provide up to £800 to cover the loss of pre-booked music-related earnings, if you’ve suffered an accident that’s keeping you from performing.

The maximum period that we shall pay for is 42 days from the date of the accident. Proof of booking is needed when making a claim for loss of earnings.
