WHAT WE DO

Austin Event Lighting transforms spaces large and small for a variety of clients in and around Texas. We in-housed many production elements under one roof so that planning is streamlined, processes are effective, and time is used efficiently. Many of our clients come from around the world so we understand how to communicate across time zones - from the planning to stage through your event. Let us show you What We Do....

Weddings & Ceremonies

Austin Event Lighting started with the loving support of a mom,  a sculptor and owner of the wedding venue,  Vista at Seward Hill.  So weddings are a specialty for us. From outdoor receptions with crystal chandeliers and Edison-style festoon lighting, to Grand Ballrooms with pin spots for your centerpieces and up-lighting to transform the space, we can take your wedding to the next level. Bridging our experience with concerts and intelligent lighting design, we can also take your party and dance floor to match an LA Nightclub! ​

Corporate Events

Our experienced team will be thrilled to transform your next big event. Companies large and small trust Austin Event Lighting from planning intelligently to executing on event day. We love small business activations, especially during SXSW, lighting the nooks and crannies of Austin, TX. We are also equipped for service nationally. AEL had the pleasure of providing lighting for key stops during the ACLU 100th Anniversary Tour. From LA to DC, Chicago to Houston, coordination and logistics came into play. We expertly provided equipment and crew, including commercial flights, trucking, hotels, and local staffing.

 

CONCERTs

Whether it’s an acoustic, solo artist that needs some background effects or a full festival with multiple stages, we understand how to develop a plan that works for the client. We carry the most innovative lighting equipment in the industry by High End Systems, Martin, Elation, and Chauvet Professional, as well as have the resources to scale a production to fill any size stage. We can supply video elements including original content, video panels, LED panels, projector mapping, pro-level lasers, and VJ capabilities. Top brands with unparalleled service.

Let us know your vision and we can make it a reality.

Our staff also wields a vast knowledge of all things audio that allows us to bring in everything from powered speakers for an auditorium to a full line array system for a 5,000 person concert. We can also provide backline, microphones, consoles, DJ equipment, monitors, and audio engineers. The right equipment with the right technicians.

SXSW

Brand Activations to mainstage crowds, Austin Event Lighting has done it all. During SXSW, we accomplish three months of work in two weeks. It takes planning and finesse in our growing town, but we know the back roads to get your band or brand lit up across the whole city. ​

 

Lighting, staging, trussing, sound, and power are important, so we work with the best in video and sound equipment to deliver a one-stop-shop for producers. ​ We’ve worked all the major venues in the Austin landscape, but also have the ability to organize and operate in parks, parking lots, or other “unusual areas” that spring up.

 

Our team understands the importance of a timeline, so we offer Run-of-Show services to insure permits get filed, logistics are planned, and deadlines get met. Multiple years running through the SXSW festival has given us some amazing experience that we look forward to applying to your next event.
