The 2nd edition of the CNTRL College Tour span over eight North American cities in 11 days, each with a college lecture during the day and a DJ club show at night, plus an additional demo area at the colleges for our brand partners to exhibit their products.
The tour consisted of two tour busses and a total touring party of up to 22 persons, including brand partners from Point Blank, Native Instruments, Pioneer, Roland and others, our technical production crew, a photographer, a videographer and a changing cast of artists.
After coordinating and advancing the first tour on my own, I now had help from my team at the booking agency (logistics manager, logistics assistant, production manager) for the advancing process. Further I handled the US work visa application for the whole team.
As Tour Manager I coordinated everything and everyone on ground and ensured that things ran smoothly. In the case of a problem, a solution had to be found and decisions made. I also looked after the tour budget.
