Coachella, california drone light show



In 2021, we put on a spectacular drone show at an Oakland Athletics game in Oakland, California with a Star Wars theme. The drone show kept fans in their site right up until last out, as they were then invited to enter the field and watch a massive 250 drone show take to the skies and perform a series of Star Wars-themed animations. This San Francisco drone show was seen for miles around, and the feedback was incredible. As Major League Baseball learned, drone shows like this are a great complement for a sporting event.


Lucky’s Supermarkets are synonymous with California, and they asked us to launch their new updated supermarket in Pleasanton, California, near San Francisco and Oakland. This San Francisco drone show featured animated elements of the company’s brand and food items dancing and performing in the sky. The whole neighborhood came out to watch this 200 drone show. The feedback we got was great, with neighbors running up afterwards to learn more about the performance and who we are. We hope to be back in that area soon for more San Francisco drone shows.


Dublin, California is a town near San Francisco and Oakland. This town features the Splatter event each fall, drawing thousands to the wine, art, and music festival. The festival has entertainment options for everyone, and this past September, it featured the first of it’s kind San Francisco drone show. The 100 drone shows can be seen in the below video drawing large rounds of applause as it performed elements that related directly to the festival. We are already slated to be returning to perform again in 2022!


From the moment you reach out to us about a San Francisco Drone Show, we’ll begin gathering as much information as we can about your show so that we can best accommodate you and bring to life your drone light show. We’ll detail out a storyboard, and provide mock-ups prior to moving into a drone show contract. We’ll always ensure that all of the airspace we are flying in in San Francisco is legal and authorized by the FAA. We will map out a site plan so that the event is both impactful but also safe for viewers. Finally, we’ll film your event in San Francisco from a nearby drone with up to 5k video resolution, and provide that to you as part of our drone light show package. We love working San Francisco Drone Shows, and look forward to working on yours with you!

We can’t wait to start working with you!

Concept Design

Our creative team will work with you on creating first a basic visual representation of your desired drone light show. We will sketch out the formation for your logo, or visual, that you want in your show and represent how they would look based on a number of drones. 

3D Visualization

You will get a 3D animation showing you what your drone light show performance will look like. At this stage, we can tweak the performance, as well as provide different views based on where spectators will view the performance, and also include in 3D models of the venue and surrounding environment.

Flight Simulation

We go through a rigorous testing process. At this stage, we will take the performance into our flight simulator and see if there are any issues related to performance aspect. You’ll have access to this step as well as we show you how we ensure the safety of our drones by maintaining good distance and airspeed so that there are no in air concerns on the day of your show.

Flight Testing

We test all of our shows at our designated testing field prior to coming to you. We will make sure that all of the batteries are functioning, all hardware is safe and secured, all software is updated, and all of the performances are meeting the criteria from the concept and design stages. This is where the excitement starts to build!

Nearly every municipality in the country spends thousands of dollars a year on fireworks shows. Our shows can perform more advanced acrobatics, are re-usable, and are not susceptible to fire bans.


Like the 2017 Super Bowl, shows can perform the same advanced acrobatics, create advanced logos and 3D models, and wow large audiences.


Major grand openings require a draw for a crowd. Our drone shows can be the featured attraction, telling a story, and sychronizing perfectly to voiceover, music, and even dancers.


Any event that requires bringing in a crowd of people calls for a drone show. Our shows can be run multiple times in a day, so a conference, expo, or special event or gala is the perfect setting.

What is a drone light show?

A drone light show is a swarm of drones that fly in a formation, directed by a ground station using precise RTK measurements to keep the drones in a constant location. Drone light show swarms can be programmed to be in excess of 1,000 drones, and perform such things as dances, light effects, animations, and much more.

How big is a drone light show?

Drone light shows take up the entire sky, going up to 400 feet and spreading out hundreds of feet, depending on the number of drones. Currently, has a capability up to 500 drones.

How safe is a drone light show?

When you work with us, you get the best drone light show hardware, drones, and software, making the performance incredibly safe. Our drone light shows are also fully-insured, and FAA waivers are in place.

When you take a risk and work with a company like “The Drone Light Show Company”, a known scam website, you take a big risk. Always do your research before moving forward with booking.

How long is a drone light show?

Drone light shows can last up to 15 minutes, but can also be run multiple times in a given evening.

How long to plan a drone light show?

Planning a drone light show can take as little as 2-3 weeks to plan as long as all FAA permits and waivers are in place.

What is the cost of a drone light show?

Drone light shows start at $10,000 USD, and go up from there based on the number of drones and how complex the drone light show animation you want for the drones to perform.

Be very wary of websites like “The Drone Light Show Company” advertising very low prices. This is in an attempt to scam you out of money.



Outdoor drone light shows rely upon technology that allows us to get a satellite connection to ensure our performance will stay in very tight formation. Outdoor drones are sturdy, capable of flying up to 25 minutes, and providing lights powerful enough to see from several miles away. Our outdoor drone light shows can be scaled up to as many as 500 drones, but any show over 200 drones will require an additional FAA waiver, so please allow 2-3 months for full approval. We utilize the most trusted drone show software and drones on the market, and have arrived at that after years of research and testing.


Indoor drone light shows rely upon different technology. This technology is much newer, and since we are indoors we cannot use an RTK system for satellite connection. The process is a little bit different in development, so please allow 2-3 months. However, the good news is you will not need an FAA waiver to operate indoors. There may be other permits that are needed, however. Get in touch with us to start the process.
