ADELAIDE BACKLINE was established in 2011 in order to provide a superior service to touring and professional musicians, bands, companies and promoters seeking world-class musical instruments, backline equipment and techs for Adelaide and regional gigs. The business transformed in 2018 under new ownership to incorporate audio and event production capabilities and rebranded as Adelaide Backline & Production Hire.

ABPH is continually reviewing and upgrading its assortment of equipment to ensure we remain Adelaide’s “go to” for premium quality backline gear and stellar service. Over twenty five years of pro backline and live production experience underpin our operational approach and we pride ourselves on our ability to slot in and get it done. Whether it’s an A-list artist or a primary school’s musical theatre production – we understand and manage each unique scenario with precision and respect.
