About Us

Fanatical about better experiences...

Fanatical are a Christchurch-based app development company servicing event clients around New Zealand. 

Our team have nearly two decades’ experience working with music festivals, events, and sports at all levels – from international concerts, to ratings-smashing national events, right down to community market days.

We don’t outsource our app builds. We do all the work here in New Zealand. That means you’ll always be dealing directly with the developers, user-experience experts, and digital marketers who actually built (and support) your app.

Fanatical was founded on a shared belief that there are smarter, faster, and more cost-effective ways to get good tech in the hands of good people.

That’s what we do.   

We Speak Your Language

Fanatical is a tech company, but we don't do tech-y speak. We're just a bunch of Kiwis who pride ourselves on being easy to work with.

Support & Communication

Most of what we do comes down to great communication and being there when a client needs us. Everything else is just ones and zeroes.


These days you can't be too secure in this digital space. Don't worry, we have all of that covered. And then covered again.
