Live on Mars

Shalom

Nice to meet you. My name is Marilyn Ambach. I was born in Antwerp, Belgium on June 11th 1980 and grew up in the Jewish community at Tachkemoni School and Hanoar Hazioni. After graduating from high school, I studied music at Rimon School in Israel from 1998-200 and then returned to Belgium to enroll in the prestigious Antwerp University UFSIA, where I earned a Masters Degree in Philosophy and graduated with honours. In 2004 I joined Live Nation Belgium to work as a concert promoter, like my father, my role model. Paul Ambach had just sold his promoter business Make it Happen to Live Nation. He taught me how to handle A list artists and be a great and humble organiser. In 2007, I moved to sunny Tel Aviv and began to work as a freelance event planner, producer and concert organiser under Live on Mars. I’ve promoted many international shows for the biggest companies mainly Bluestone/Live Nation. Artists including Leonard Cohen, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Guns ‘n Roses, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart, Bon Jovi, Elton John, Maroon5, Rihanna, international DJ’s, actors, models, influencers etc. In 2010 I even toured the world as a production assistant for Leonard Cohen. In the last few years, my specialty became curating, booking and hosting internationals in Israel. Besides the productional and organisational aspect of shows, events and concerts, I focus on taking care of anyone visiting Israel from abroad. Taking care of guests from A to Z and giving them all the ultimate VIP treatment. My contacts abroad are large thanks to my last name and my 15 years of experience in Israel.
