About
DPS

From concept to realization, Diversified Production Services (DPS) is the global leader in developing and executing world-class live entertainment, broadcast, special, and corporate events. We specialize in making history.

Annually, DPS produces hundreds of unique events for the top artists, corporations, trade associations, and non-profits worldwide.

We have a unique specialization in broadcast events and have produced more than 100 television and streaming specials, including four Super Bowl halftime shows that have received multiple Primetime Emmy Award nominations and one win. The most recent, led by Usher in 2024, averaged 129.3 million viewers — the most-watched Super Bowl halftime show on record. DPS has also produced Global Citizen Festivals in New York City, Johannesburg, and Mumbai; the iHeartRadio Music Festival; the Roots Picnic; and Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 Vision Tour.

DPS is also widely known for innovation in multi-act concerts, including 12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief, which raised more than $55 million to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy, and Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival.

We also lead the industry in artist-driven projects, including JAY Z’s Made in America Festival, Paul McCartney’s surprise pop-up show in Grand Central Terminal, and First Lady Michelle Obama’s worldwide BECOMING book tour.

Lady Gaga, Metallica, Justin Timberlake, Pearl Jam, Coldplay, and AC/DC are among the artists we’ve worked with on one-off special events. Fundraisers including Rihanna’s Diamond Ball and A Concert for Charlottesville are also part of our credits.

DPS’ touring division provides staff and technical packages for Beyoncé, JAY Z, BTS, Guns N’ Roses, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Meek Mill, and more.

We pride ourselves on our long-standing relationships with artists and venues, as that translates to unparalleled experience in event and talent production, broadcast and location management, and financial and contract development. DPS strives to achieve a paramount event experience for our partners, their fans, and their production partners.
