Full Service Technical Solutions

As one of the longest established technical production companies in the UK, we supply sound, lighting, video, rigging, and staging equipment for one-off concerts, tours, and festivals. 

We work on projects of all shapes and sizes – from one-off shows in our hometowns of Liverpool and Glasgow, to stadium events like Summertime Ball at Wembley Stadium. Adlib is also popular with touring engineers and production managers with our touring credits including the likes of Hozier, The Script, Joe Bonamassa, Blossoms, Chvrches, and 5 Seconds of Summer.

Thank you so much once again for another successful Summertime Ball. This show doesn’t happen without its challenges, and we genuinely appreciate the hard work and extra mile that you all go to help make it a success. As always, please extend our thanks to your teams, it’s hugely appreciated.
