How Does Weather Insurance For Music Festivals Work?

It’s Simple!

Describe your weather concerns for your event so we can help identify variables to best minimize that risk.

Based on your concerns, needs, and your area’s historical weather information, we design a policy to help protect your event and reputation.

Once you pay the premium, you’re set. If the policy is triggered, the claims process is simple.

If your policy triggers, your payout is typically mailed in less than two weeks.

Hourly Insurance for a single event/day

Whether your music festival is a one-day event, or you've identified a critical portion of your weekend-long music festival you want to insure, you select the hours most important to a successful event and we'll present quote options for your review.

Multiple hourly events for several events/days

If there are several hourly events of a multi-day festival you want to insure, you choose the combination of dates, hours, and the amount of insurance needed and then select the best option for your needs

Tiered insurance limits

We can build tiered insurance quotes that offer smaller payouts for light rainfall and escalating payouts for increasing rainfall. This way, a policy can still respond, even if there is only a small amount of rain.

"Vortex made the purchasing process extremely easy and we appreciate that!"

Stamford Downtown

Every year our outdoor concert series attracts tens of thousands of attendees. But if rainfall occurs, we risk taking a significant financial hit which is why we use Vortex Rain Insurance. The entire process, from requesting quotes, to placing coverage, to submitting a claim, was quick and simple!


Roadway Productions

“After producing events for 20 years, I decided to purchase weather insurance for the very first time. My first experience was with Vortex, and I have to say it was simple, straight forward, and paid out the very first time!  If it rains at your weather station more than the amount you buy, you get paid just like that!  I had the check within a week and a half!  I purchased another policy for the same event, and it rained again.  Just that easy I was paid out the second time I ever purchased rain insurance.  If you have any doubt, just contact me.  I feel safer knowing that I can cover my bills from the event if it rains.”
