She was involved in the only drive-in cinema in Berlin, which was able to win its concept with the official authorities out of 80 applicants during the Corona summer of 2020.

In addition, Kleopatra Tümmler can look back on an impressive career in the music industry. She started at Sony Music in 2000 and when she moved to Universal Music two years later, she was involved in the massive international breakthrough of Tokio Hotel as International Exploitation Manager.

When she met the pop stars a-ha, it was “love at first sight” and soon she was touring around the world with the Norwegians as a tour manager - and without any experience in this job.

Since then, Tümmler has continued to work on tour for many greats and even accompanied Take That as a crew member on two huge tours between 2007 and 2009, each grossing approximately $40 million.

At the same time, the Berlin music manager also began working in artist management and looked after Kurt Krömer, Jamie Lee, Michael Patrick Kelly and currently Till Brönner, among others.

In the Redfield Podcast with Alexander Schröder, Cleopatra Tümmler traces her path and describes the challenges she had to overcome along the way. The two talk about their management philosophy and how music managers should actually market themselves these days.

The creator also tells how she and a team managed to realize Berlin's only drive-in cinema during the summer of 2020 during the Corona pandemic.
