Having recently announced the details for this year’s IMS Grand Finale Festival at Dalt Vila on Friday 25th May – a spectacular open-air celebration of the very best in modern electronic music, now regarded as one of the unmissable events in the Ibizan summer season. The team behind the Ibiza International Music Summit now proudly outline the day schedule, which will once again be held at the impressive 5* Ibiza Gran Hotel.
With its Grand Finale Festival at Dalt Vila proving unmissable for music fans, the same can be applied to it’s day schedule for anyone working, or wanting to work within electronic music. Tackling hugely important subjects for labels, managers, publishers and of course the artists, the IMS offers you the opportunity to listen and be apart of vital conversation with the world’s leading figures across music, business and digital strategy.
Spread across three days (Wed 23rd, Thu 24th, Fri 25th May), the IMS consists of some of the most forward-thinking and relevant discussion that you’ll ever experience. A truly exciting occasion that is coordinated by some of the most experienced names in the business; now in 2012 it announces its strongest line up of panels and guest speakers since its founding five years ago.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS YEAR’S SUMMIT:
Ben Turner, co-founder and IMS partner said: "IMS is so excited about this year´s line-up starting with the news of Nile Rodgers coming to Ibiza to talk about his incredible history at a crucial time for him. He has just confirmed he´s on production duties for Daft Punk so it’s also a very special moment to get time with him. Aside from this, we have visionaries from Twitter, You Tube, Vice and Foursquare coming, plus the strongest artist speakers we´ve had in five years. Electronic music is in a huge position of strength, so this year´s theme is Connections Count, as we open the doors to some of the biggest partnership companies around. Come to IMS Ibiza and make it count."
The IMS Legends Dinner, hosted by IMS co-founder Pete Tong, will celebrate Carl Cox. Cox became a headline act in the late 80’s, DJing the most exciting raves at the time and was the first ‘star’ DJ of Ibiza from his early shows in San Antonio, maintaining his global status for 25 years.
