Our Clients

Tokyo World

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 and licensing advice. We ensure your event goes off without a hitch and your crowd enjoy maximum levels throughout. Through careful management and planning we can minimise the impact on surrounding residential areas.

In 2015 the event featured three of our creative stage sets, including our VULKANO (Afterworld) stage, which provided a mind-boggling, immersive centrepiece, in 2020 we delivered 7 main stages with 40,000 capacity.

Arcadia Spectacular

AF Live provides all sound, including backline  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.


“AF LIVE take care of all our backline and DJ kit needs and have added their creative expertise, installing the Afterworld, Blast and Tokyo Hi-Fi stages, which we’re really proud of. 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
Director - 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.”
Ceri Wade - Arcadia Production Manager
