Managing Director / We Love Green
As director of WE LOVE GREEN festival and associate director of WE LOVE ART, Marie Sabot has been making both the electronic and alternative music scenes buzz for the past 20 years.
After studies in law and communications, she went on to work in production and scheduling for several Parisian venues like the Élysée Montmartre and the Divan du Monde, plus she organised huge secret parties with “Les Templiers”, worked on events management for multiple corporate agencies in Paris (Auditoire, Public Systeme, Lever de Rideau...), and even worked on the artistic direction for the Athens Olympic Games.
In 2004, she founded WE LOVE ART, which in the space of 10 years, established itself as a major catalyst in the arts and cultural industries, with events like: over 50 WELOVE electronic music nights held in unique Parisian venues; closing parties for Monumenta at the Grand Palais since 2011; digital art installations as part of Nuit Blanche; and since 2013, THE PEACOCK SOCIETY festival that celebrates all things electro at the Parc Floral de Paris botanical gardens.
At the same time, WE LOVE ART has developed as an events agency, providing expertise consultancy, management and marketing services that are always one step ahead of the trends, dreaming up and staging made-to-measure ephemeral events for audacious brands and their audiences.
Since 2011, with WE LOVE GREEN Paris (which saw 58,000 festival goers in 2017), she’s proven that a major event can work in harmony with the environment, and that a festival can also be a hub of innovative, eco-friendly initiatives and ideas.
She participated to many conferences, in France but also in Europe, to promote the festival and its sustainable actions, in order to encourage others festival to engage changes in their production, and find innovative solutions.
