What Insurance is Needed for Summer Concerts and Festivals

Are you going to a summer concert or festival? What would happen if you got injured or your property damaged at an event like this?

How am I protected by insurance as an attendee?

While it’s not typically required for individuals attending a festival or concert to have insurance, having certain types of insurance can be beneficial.

Here are some considerations:
1 Event Insurance:

◦ Purpose: Covers potential losses related to ticket purchases, such as event cancellation or rescheduling.
◦ Benefits: Can reimburse you for non-refundable expenses if the event is canceled, postponed, or if you are unable to attend due to covered reasons.

2 Personal Liability Insurance:
◦ Purpose: Provides coverage if you accidentally cause injury to someone else or damage someone’s property at the event.
◦ Benefits: Can protect you from potential lawsuits and financial losses.

3 Health Insurance:
◦ Purpose: Covers medical expenses if you get injured or fall ill at the festival.
◦ Benefits: Ensures you have access to medical care without incurring high out-of-pocket costs.

4 Travel Insurance:
◦ Purpose: If you are traveling to attend the festival, travel insurance can cover trip cancellations, lost luggage, and other travel-related issues.
◦ Benefits: Provides peace of mind and financial protection for unexpected travel disruptions.

5 Equipment Insurance:
◦ Purpose: If you are bringing expensive equipment, such as cameras or musical instruments, equipment insurance can cover loss, theft, or damage.
◦ Benefits: Protects your valuable items and ensures you can replace them if necessary.

While these types of insurance are not mandatory, they can provide valuable protection and peace of mind.

What if you are hosting a concert or event this summer?

Special events liability insurance is a type of insurance policy that covers the duration of your event. Your coverage and cost will vary depending on the conditions and size of your event.

Insurance to consider for your summer concert or festival

  • What type of event are you hosting?
  • Where is your event taking place?
  • Will you be serving alcohol
  • How much coverage do you need?

Commercial general liability: It helps provide coverage for property damage and bodily injuries of attendees. It can also provide some coverage for legal expenses in the event there is a lawsuit.

Liquor liability: This type of insurance provides coverage in the case of any liquor-related events or a lawsuit.

Special events coverage: It provides coverage for third-party property damage, injuries, and accidents and can cover employees and volunteers. Commercial general liability coverage may include special events coverage, or you can purchase it as an add-on.

Cancellation coverage: This type of insurance provides coverage if your summer concert or festival is cancelled, interrupted, or postponed. Depending on the cause of the disruption, this coverage may help you with compensation for financial losses.
