Stéphanie Thomas (FR)

Stéphanie Thomas was the first executive manager of FERAROCK, a national network of independent radios (1998 – 2008) and she still hosts a radio show every Friday on the local radio Canal B. In 2008, she joined the French organization for popular music venues Fedurok (now called FEDELIMA), which she is co-directing today dealing with national policies and partnerships on behalf of the members. She is a militant in her work and in her life, and music is a bridge for her commitment. As the association’s president from 2012 to 2017, she had a crucial part in shaping Live DMA since its foundation.

“I am in the Live DMA adventure since the early beginning. I saw the network grow, facing crisis, but also obtain great success. We passed through big challenges together with a real sense of unity despite our differences. We managed to build a great project showing how strong and solidary we can be together.”
