Lesley Olenik, global promoter at Live Nation, has had incredible successes this past year, contributing significantly to the division’s growth. Olenik used her distinctive industry expertise to build dynamic events from clubs & theatres to arenas worldwide.
In 2019 & 2020, she booked a number of coveted, sold-out tours including Lizzo (Cuz I Love You Too Tour), Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals (Best Teef In The Game Tour), Pet Shop Boys & New Order, and Billie Eilish’s (When We All Fall Asleep North America Tour & Where Do We Go? World Tour).
Beyond traditional music tours, she expanded her purview as promoter of family outings like Dude Perfect’s Pound It Noggin Tour, the viral YouTube stars who sold out arenas across North America last summer.
She booked and helped curate Pharrell’s sold out, first-ever SOMETHING IN THE WATER Festival in Virginia Beach, which featured a variety of artists including Pharrell Williams, SZA, Rosalía, J Balvin, Usher, Diddy, Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, Travis Scott, Jhene Aiko and many more.
Olenik organised Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life event at the Greek Theater, which honoured the rapper’s legacy.
Childish Gambino, BANKS, Sabrina Claudio, Janelle Monae, Erasure, The Head & The Heart, Quinn XCII, deadmau5, 6lack, and Bring Me the Horizon have all been booked by Olenik.
Prior to joining Live Nation in 2017, Olenik was a promoter in Los Angeles with Goldenvoice for nearly ten years.
