About us


Follow-Me, a Dutch company founded by Gary Yates and Erik Berends, brings a wealth of experience in the entertainment industry to the forefront. With a combined background in large-scale projects spanning 25 years, and Erik's expertise in developing cutting-edge entertainment industry products and software worldwide, Follow-Me embodies innovation and excellence.

The company's journey began in 2013 when British band Suede sought a cost-effective, flexible, and easy-to-implement follow-spot solution for their performances. Follow-Me answered the call, providing the first version of their system, which allowed moving heads to remotely follow the lead singer, as per the request of LD Jip Nipius. Since then, Follow-Me has continuously expanded, now offering two dynamic systems: Follow-Me 3D and Follow-Me Track-iT, enabling both manual and automatic performer tracking on stage, backed by custom-built hardware.

The success of Follow-Me can be seen in its widespread adoption, with numerous shows and tours currently thriving through their software and hardware solutions. Comprising a dedicated team of 13 professionals, the company aims to ensure that every user enjoys a great experience while employing Follow-Me for their productions.

Proudly originating from the Netherlands, Follow-Me is an industry-leading innovator, committed to advancing the possibilities of live entertainment through forward-thinking technology and an unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction.
