SXS provided technical production for the X Factor Show Party for the 2017 season finale.

Working with the long-established experiental agency Experience, SXS were appointed as provider of LED video wall, audio, lighting, rigging, staging and some props for this high-profile event at Excel London.

“It was a pleasure to work on production for this show as I have always been a fan of the design and energy behind X Factor” says Production Manager Nathan Dunbar.   “We were tasked with helping to create a 'backstage' feel as requested by the client to keep with the aesthetic of the main show".
