Drawing on our extensive network of industry contacts, AF Live provides full technical production management for any sized event.

What is technical production?

Technical production encompasses the planning, logistics, installation and operation of technical equipment for a variety of live events. It typically includes a bespoke mixture of sound, staging, lighting, video, special effects, backline supply, management of artist tech riders, sound engineers and noise management services.

From wedding parties and professional conferences to some of the world’s most successful festivals, AF Live are expert in technical production. We supply experienced technicians to install specialist equipment and manage the efficient removal after the event.

"We needed a one-stop shop that could provide everything from staging advice and guidance to lighting and sound. We can safely say we got all of that and more from Paul, Nikki and the rest of the AF Live team."

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 to the festival as it’s grown to encompass over 100 stages.

We provide complete sound and lighting support for 12 main stages including festival favourite, the Lion’s Den, as well as the spectacular Relic and Nucleus stages.

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 local council and environmental health organisations, we manage noise levels across the site and ensure maximum sound satisfaction across the competing systems.

2022’s festival won Best Festival Production at the 2022 UK Festival Awards, recognising the team’s hard work bringing the event to life. We’re excited to see what 2023’s event brings!
