a contract is meant to be an agreement between two parties, not something that is handed over by one for both to sign.  however, someone frequently will have the upper hand one of the two may not get what they want, but doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ask for it. 

In any case, you do have choices: try to negotiate for some language in the contract that protects you, or accept and sign.  If you try to negotiate, they again have the choice to accept for negotiate further.  That’s how it’s supposed to work.  Repeat until both accept and sign, or someone backs out, and you go looking again.

I rewrote the entire contract and then sent it back with a very nice note explaining my worries and they completely understood and were fine with it.  Definitely a contract should protect you as well.  Make sure everything you discuss is in there – I added a "Notes" section to mine to accommodate this.  I think you just have to be really nice in explaining your fears and they will be more than accommodating if they are a reputable venue.  My venue actually said they would also make me a copy of their insurance certificate so I had it.
