Prince Welcome 2 Australia
Earlier this year we were thrilled to work with the Van Egmond Group and Chugg Entertainment on the Prince Welcome 2 Australia Tour which recently won “Best International Contemporary Concert” at the prestigious Helpmann Awards.
“Prince pulled out all the stops in a full-tilt, greatest hits fashion. It wouldn’t be Prince if he didn’t do something predictably unpredictable.”
(Iain Shedden, The Australian)
“one of the concert parties of the decade . . .the pop-‐rock superstar set a new benchmark for old school Entertainment”

Nova London Lockdown
We love a challenge at alive and so when NOVA 969 rang us to create a ‘lockdown’ in a shop window in Sydney, we rose to the challenge!
The winner of the NOVA London lockdown competition spent 17 Days living in the space which was ﬁtted out as a pretty cool ‘bedroom’ complete with multiple monitors streaming the Olympics 24/7 as passers buy stopped to take a peak inside this strange little world!
Webcams and live crosses kept listeners and viewers up to date at almost every moment! Crazy!

alive was proud to produce WYNNSDAY 2012 for Treasury Wine Estates for the 3rd consecutive year. To ensure that Australia’s most prestigious national wine event evolved to yet another level, we took on the challenge of multiple locations, live satellite links and a Masterclass to be staged in the enormous barrel hall at Wynns in the Coonawarra. In addition to this, several events were programmed at Wynns for select guests from around the country including Sketch in Melbourne, Blue Water in Perth, Centennial Park in Sydney, The Botanic Gardens in Adelaide and Alchemy in Brisbane.
