Drawing on our extensive network of industry contacts, AF Live provides full technical production management for music festivals and concerts. This typically involves a bespoke mixture of sound, staging, and lighting installations, video, and special effects, backline, management of artist tech riders, sound engineers and noise management. We supply experienced crews to install equipment and manage its efficient removal after the event.

Whether you want us to manage the technical requirements of a stadium-sized event or festival, you can trust us to make it happen smoothly.

Noise Management and Acoustic Solutions

AF Live can advise on and manage the complex world of legal noise restrictions for any event with amplified sound. We have over 15 years of experience working with local authorities, environmental health and other regulatory bodies to plan and run events while adhering to legal restrictions.

With our hands on experience of working with sound systems, our approach is always focussed on the success of the event, finding and implementing practical solutions to make the most of the system whilst adhering to noise restrictions.

If you’re looking for a noise management assessment, we will prepare your report, liaise with your local council and carry out the necessary propagation tests on site. We will design your system to ensure you achieve the very best sound levels for your venue.

We can provide reliable and efficient Production Crew for any type of event, including Production Managers, Stage Managers, Stage Crew, Sound Engineers, Lighting Engineers, Av Technicians, HGV DriversPlant Operators, qualified Riggers and general Site Crew.

What our clients say

Ceri Wade, Arcadia Spectacular Production Manager
"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."

Who we’ve worked with

Boomtown Fair

Since the birth of Boomtown Fair in 2009, AF Live has been at the heart of the event providing full technical production management as it’s grown to encompass over 100 stages. We deliver full sound and lighting for twelve main stages including festival favourite, the Lion’s Den & the spectacular Bang-Hai Palace.

We manage the technical requirements and the backline for each stage, providing a fleet of skilled engineers and technicians on the ground. Working closely with the local council and environmental health organisation, we ensure noise levels are as efficient 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, making sure 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, ensuring the event goes off without a hitch and the crowd enjoy maximum sound 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; click here to contact us for more information.

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 and 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 managed the sensitive issue of noise pollution, liaising with Bristol City Council representatives. The event was a resounding success with immense crowd satisfaction and no public complaints.
