Why do DJs need PLI?
Why do I need DJ PLI (Public Liability Insurance)?

It covers your legal liability to pay compensation in respect of accidental bodily injury or accidental damage to Third Party Persons or Property. Guests or venue staff could make a claim against you if they incur an accidental injury. A venue could make a claim against you if you have caused any damage to their property.

Do you need DJ PLI?
Does my DJ need to have PLI (Public Liability Insurance)?

For your own peace of mind, it is important that your DJ is covered for all eventualities. If one of your guests should injure themselves on the disco equipment, and the DJ doesn't have cover, they could claim directly off you. Likewise, if your DJ damages any of the fixtures or fittings at your venue, you could be held responsible, as the hirer, if your DJ isn't covered.

Many venues insist on seeing evidence that your DJ has PLI. Check the small print on your venue hire terms and conditions form - chances are it's in there.

How much PLI cover?
Does it matter how much PLI my DJ has?

Some venues insist on a minimum amount, which is increasing year on year. Venues under council control, many listed buildings, large hotels and country houses often require the maximum, which is £10 million insurance cover.

Short term DJ PLI
Where can I get DJ Public Liability Insurance for One Day?

You may find that this is more expensive than one year!! If you do more than one disco a year then it's also worth having an annual policy. Any short term insurance is usually more expensive, besides there's an equal chance of a claim at all events, not just those where you are asked for evidence of your DJ PLI cover.

Will it help my disco business?
Will having PLI help my Mobile Disco business?

Increasingly venues now insist on seeing evidence of your DJ PLI before allowing you to enter the building and set up.

It gives potential clients confidence in you and promotes you as a professional, taking your mobile disco business seriously. It also gives peace of mind, not only to you, but also the venue and your potential clients.

It won't help you to be a better DJ but having DJ PLI (DJ Public Liability Insurance) may also help you to gain access to venues you might not otherwise be permitted to perform in without it, so in this regard it will help your DJ business.

PLI for disco companies
Is the PLI for the mobile disco company or the DJ?

In most cases Public Liability Insurance is for the individual only.

Members of The Alliance of Mobile & Party DJs will hold a policy with their own name and address indicated on it. More than one person from the same mobile disco company may hold membership & PLI with us - in these cases each will be in possession of a certificate bearing their own name and the address of the company.

Venue PLI
Should I provide PLI cover for any entertainment I am booking

This is very unusual and may also be expensive - far easier (& cheaper) to book a DJ/Disco who already has the necessary amount of PLI cover to satisfy the requirements of the venue.

Make an enquiry at as all our DJs have the necessary PLI cover.

Is it a legal requirement?
Is it a legal requirement to have DJ PLI?

No - if you don't have  DJ PLI you won't be breaking the law however in today's society of 'No Win - No Fee' companies it's now easier than ever for someone to claim off you. If you accidentally injure someone or damage property whilst working as a mobile DJ then having PLI could save you £1,000s (even millions of pounds) in any claim for damages.

It's not just the injury compensation either. Legal fees can be much much more than the original claim.

Worldwide PLI cover
What area does my PLI Public Liability Insurance cover?

The cover is worldwide in respect of any business undertaken at or from premises within Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man

How quickly can I get DJ PLI

DJ PLI cover
Will each policy be covered on its own merits and any individual claims covered irrespective of other policies for other members?

This means that each individual claim is limited to £10,000,000 but there is no limit on the amount of claims that can be made during the period of insurance.
