Livewire was founded in 1999 by Kent Kolstad in Alexandria, Minnesota.
From the start, we aimed to supply our region with world-class audio, video, lighting, scenery and staging for corporate events, conferences, non-profit galas, concerts, and theatrical events, of all shapes and sizes.
In our 23 years, we’ve had the pleasure of working with thousands of event planners to bring their dreams to life.
Livewire is now based in Downtown Fargo, North Dakota, with a constant presence throughout the North’s greatest cities including Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Sioux Falls, Bismarck, St. Cloud, and Alexandria.
As we’ve grown, so has our reach. We've had the pleasure of working with clients on events across the country...with only 9 states left to cross off the list!
