client comments

"Figure of Eight are our festival go to technical provider. We once tried another more cost attractive supplier but came back to Figure of Eight when we understood how much they sort seamlessly behind the scenes. HowTheLightGetsIn has a lot of different tech requirements but the the team always has the time to talk through our ever changing needs to come up with suitable, workable and sustainable solutions. A Super friendly and professional team and we are excited to work together on our next festival!"
