LIWYN. Eases life for all parties


The founder of Liwyn is Leonieke Smit. Born in the Netherlands and based in Amsterdam, she started her career at 1Management in January 2002 after getting her degree in Leisure Management.
Within a couple of years she became co-owner of 1Management where she was the driving force for artists involved. Leonieke was responsible for all international bookings of artists such as Fedde le Grand, Bingo Players, Funkerman, Sidney Samson and Gregor Salto. She played a key role in the career build up of more than 50 artists in the last decade and represented all of them worldwide on an exclusive basis.

With more than 15 years of industry experience Liwyn knows all the ins and outs of the business. This ensures that we will book your artist of choice at the best price possible as well as making sure all legal matters are taken care of in order to protect you. Through loyalty, hard work and integrity we deliver excellent service. Our clients best interest is our highest priority. Liwyn gets things done and keeps all parties satisfied.


Booking an artist is more than finding the right person for the right event, at the right price. We believe this industry is build on relationships. It’s connecting people with people.
In an ever more fluid and fast world Liwyn believes it becomes more and more important to have a strong network with solid contacts. Personal contact is the key to success for both artists and clients.

As an agency we take pride in the relationships we have developed in order to deliver the best artists for our clients. We take care of everything involved in an event or a gig: from contractual details and administration to agenda management and promotion. Our goal is to ensure that artists and clients can do what they do best!


Given our experience and accumulated expertise, we are more than capable of providing advise for both artists and clients. We like to add value. This way we believe that we can offer that little bit extra. Liwyn strives to build long term relationships through quality, sincerity and getting things done!
