International Music Summit return to the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza between May 24 – May 26 for the tenth anniversary of the conference.
Ten years that has seen the industry gathering become one of the most important on the electronic music calendar as well as giving birth to multiple global spin offs – IMS Engage in LA, IMS Asia Pacific in Shanghai and the recently added IMS College in Malta – as it continues its dedication to identifying and addressing the big issues within the scene. IMS 10, Connecting Our Culture, promises to be the biggest conference yet!
IMS Ibiza takes place during the island’s opening season week, with a multitude of high profile events in iconic venues including Pacha, DC10, Amnesia and Ushuaia featuring the world’s biggest DJs. This year there is a return of the ‘Back2Live’ event – a special and unique showcase that celebrates the crossover between electronic and live music. There is also the annual IMS Legends Dinner to honor those that have left a legacy on the culture and industry. Previous award winners include Nile Rodgers, Fatboy Slim, Sven Vath, Carl Cox and Pepe Roselló, Founder of Space Ibiza.
There is of course a fitting Grand Finale, offering the opportunity to dance in one of the most uniquelocations in the world – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dalt Villa. Undoubtedly a rare and alternative opportunity to dance on and enjoy the 2500-year-old castle. Previous headliners have included Carl Cox, Solomun, Sven Vath, Rudimental and Pete Tong.“
