Event Speaker: Cleopatra Fyntanidou (GR)
Cleopatra Fyntanidou was born in Athens, Greece. She started her first classical piano lessons at the age of six. She studied European Civilization at the Hellenic Open University and Audio Engineering at the SAE Institute of Athens. Despite the fact that she was a music lover and a vinyl collector from a very young age, she had never thought of being a dj until she came back from London, where she had lived for almost a year. Her first appearance as a professional dj was due to an annual collaboration she had with “Red Bull”. For many years she worked as a music supervisor in various radio and TV stations in Greece, such as “Flash 96.1”, “Athens 98.4”, “NET” and “Mega Channel”. For a short period she was in charge of radio promotion at the Public Relations Department of “Polygram Recording Company”. From 1999 to 2001 she had her own two-hour electronic music radio show every weekend (01:00 – 03:00 am GMT+2) at the Athenian radio station “Klik FM 88”. From 2001 onwards she has been working as a Radio Producer at the leading and highly acclaimed zone (Monday to Friday 23:00 – 01:00 am GMT +2) of the most influential and popular electronic music radio station of Athens, “Best 92,6” (www.best926.gr) Cleopatra has shared the decks with many internationally renowned djs in several events and music festivals.
