Everyone knows that accidents can happen, but no one expects to be affected. No one attends a concert, play or music festival expecting tragedy, but sadly, such things happen. Entertainment public liability insurance helps to protect venues, performers and promoters from the risks associated with these types of events.
What Could Go Wrong?
At any live event there are behaviors, conditions and episodes that cannot be anticipated. Some of the possibilities include:
- performer actions
- equipment malfunctions
- venue problems
- violence by attendees or intruders
Even well planned and managed events can include incidents resulting in injury. In many cases, injured parties will attempt to sue anyone who might be even peripherally responsible, from the headline performer to the venue concessions provider.
Insurance can protect you from the kinds of financial exposure that a lawsuit can bring. Public liability policies can offer coverage for legal fees and associated costs of litigation, as well as settlement payments in the event that this route seems like the best choice.
Prepare for Catastrophe
Rather than worrying about all of the things that can go wrong, protecting yourself with entertainment public liability insurance can provide the peace of mind that will allow you to focus on the event itself. Because as they say, the show must go on.
