FEDELIMA has more than 17 years of experience and represents 150 venues in France – since 2013, FEDELIMA (Fédurok from 1994 – 2013) has functioned as a national network which gathers venues and projects dedicated to popular music. FEDELIMA’s office is located in Nantes but works with venues situated all over France. Its mission is to federate and develop the general interest initiatives in the popular music sector, by helping its members to anticipate cultural, economic, technologic, political and social changes. FEDELIMA supports the development of its members by providing them with resources and tools in order to ensure complementarity and cooperation from local to international scale. On a national scale, FEDELIMA is working as a partner to The Ministry of Culture and participates therefore in consultations regarding ordinances of the music venues.
