WE DO IT ALL
Whether it’s an acoustic, solo artist that needs some background effects or a full festival with multiple stages, we develop a plan that works for our 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, towering video walls, and crisp TVs.
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 provide backline, microphones, consoles, DJ equipment, monitors, and audio engineers. The right equipment with the right technicians.
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 equipment to deliver a one-stop-shop for planners and coordinators. We work at all the major venues in Austin, but we can organize and operate in parks, parking lots, or other “unusual areas” that spring up during South By Southwest
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.
