Who we’ve worked with

Boomtown Fair

Since the birth of Boomtown Fair in a gloriously sunny forest clearing back in 2009 AF Live has been at the heart of the event, providing full technical production management to the festival as it’s grown to encompass over 100 stages. We provide full sound and lighting for twelve main stages including festival favourite, The Lion’s Den & the spectacular Bang-Hai Palace, brand new for 2015 & beyond!

We manage the technical requirements and the back line for each stage, providing a fleet of skilled engineers and technicians on the ground. Working closely with local council and environmental health we ensure noise levels are as good as possible throughout the event for maximum crowd satisfaction.

Tokyo World

AF Live has worked with Tokyo World since its inception and has seen the event grow from a small-scale party into a 15,000 capacity event. We provide full technical production management. This means we make sure all stages are kitted out with everything they need: sound, staging, lighting, lasers, video mapping, mixing consoles, engineers, technicians and back line.

We also provide noise management, ensuring the event goes off without a hitch and the crowd enjoy maximum levels throughout, while minimising the impact on surrounding residential areas. In 2015 the event featured three of our creative stage sets, including our VOLKANO (Afterworld) stage, which provided a mind-boggling, immersive centrepiece.

VOLKANO is available for hire worldwide; please contact us for more info.

Arcadia Spectacular

Arcadia Spectacular has a formidable reputation for the quality of its shows, winning the Total Production International award for best live event production in 2013 and 2014. AF Live provides all sound for the Arcadia Spectacular show & due to the placement of the sound being in the round (the audience is all around the action) we integrate cutting-edge sound production software to map the sound effectively.

For Arcadia’s ground-breaking 2015 show in the centre of Bristol, AF Live also managed the sensitive issue of noise pollution, liaising with Bristol City Council representatives. The event was a resounding success with obvious crowd satisfaction and virtually no public complaints.


Our partner AF Live provides vital technical production services to Boomtown, overseeing all stages and venues. In addition to supplying some of our best sound systems including Bang Hai Palace and Lion's Den, they ensure every venue has the technical equipment it needs and supply many of our sound engineers and technicians. They also play a key role in making sure the sound levels at Boomtown are the best they can be, something we are very proud of.
Chris Rudz - Director - Boomtown
AF LIVE take care of all our technical production and have added their creative expertise, installing the Afterworld, Blast and Tokyo Hi-Fi stages, which we’re really proud of. The Afterworld stage was immense at Tokyo World 2015, the crowd went absolutely crazy when it exploded! “ We’re very excited about the future of our festival. It’s going from strength to strength and Paul from AF LIVE has been a massive part of this.
Jess Gould - Production Manager - Tokyo World
We’re always striving to give our audiences an experience they’ve never had before. Part of what makes the Arcadia Spectacular show different is its 360-degree sound field, which means clear, loud sound for everyone. AF LIVE helped us realise this design from the beginning and we continue to work closely with them at all our UK shows.
