Our Clients

Tokyo World

We provide full technical production management for Tokyo World. We ensure all stages are kitted out with everything they need: sound, staging, lighting, lasers, video mapping, mixing consoles, engineers, technicians and backline. We also provide noise management, minimising the impact on surrounding residential areas through careful management and planning.

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 seven 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.

“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.”
