Hard Rock Hotel, Ibiza
Every May for 3 days the worlds electronic music gurus flock to the white isle for the Ibiza International Music Summit. Industry heads from all corners of the globe come to the event to network, learn and experience some of the worlds most famous clubs at a series of panels, workshops and parties! Its a great opportunity to secure new business deals, hear about the latest trends and see where the industry is headed. The global flagship event is back to back with all things music!
Ibiza is filled with celebrities but during this week your chances of seeing someone is at its peak! Who knows who you could run into? Anyone can purchase delegate tickets which includes entry to all of the associated events and special rates at the Hard Rock Hotel based in Playa den Bossa where the summit takes place.
We are most excited about one of our favourite events we go to every summer on top of the UNESCO World Heritage site, Dalt Vila. The medieval fort was founded in 654BC and is known as the best preserved coastal fortification in the Mediterranean. The line up has already been announced with Dubfire, Tale of Us, Nicole Moudaber, B.Traits, Benjamin Damage Live and Francesca Lombardo.
The party starts around 5pm until around midnight. The atmosphere is breathtaking with panoramic views over Ibiza Town, La Marina ses Salines and the island of Formentera with the castle as the backdrop to the stage. You are literally dancing next to giant canons that soldiers used to fight with more than 2500 years ago. When the sunsets listening to some of the worlds best DJs its one of the most magical experiences you will have in your life. Seriously, how often do you get to party on the rooftop of a World Heritage castle overlooking the Mediterranean?
IMS is also excited to welcome the Pet Shop Boys to ?#?IMSIbiza? on May25th through 27th this year! The prolific duo will celebrate 30 years of making music at IMS Ibiza with an anticipated Pete Tong Interview for their rare public speaking appearance. From ‘Paninaro’ to legendary remixes from the likes of The KLF and David Morales, Pet Shop Boys have been a leading force in electronic music and are bringing their valuable insight to the discussion this May.
The first speakers have been announced for the summit. Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin and Seth Troxler, amongst others, will sit alongside industry icons from the electronic music realm, including representatives of Space Ibiza, Warner Music Group, Crowdmix and more.
