International Music Summit (IMS), which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, has announced details of its Ibiza Dalt Vila event.
EDM conference IMS Ibiza was created by DJ Pete Tong and four industry partners, and has gone on to host IMS spin-off events in China (IMS Asia-Pacific), Los Angeles (IMS Engage) and the recent addition of IMS College in Malta - an educational-platform for electronic music. IMS Ibiza runs from May 24-26.
The platform has been described as “the TED of music conferences” and has been responsible for leading initiatives that has resulted in change in the industry including the creation of the AFEM: Association for Electronic Music, the global trade body which promotes, protects and preserves the legacy and future of the genre.
Ibiza Dalt Vila, which takes place on May 26 at the island's 2,500 year-old fort Dalt Vila, will feature Kenlou aka Masters At Work’s Louie Vega and Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez performing two sets – one with The Martinez Brothers and the other with Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJ Poll winner Dixon. Other acts will include IMS co-founder and BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong playing alongside Nicole Moudaber, B.Traits with Jesse Rose, and to close, Tale of Us perform with Maceo Plex.
“This line-up is by far our strongest in our 10 years," said IMS co-founder Ben Turner. "We are honoured to bring in legends Masters At Work to be a big part of IMS this year and to see the likes of Dixon and The Martinez Brothers jump at performing with them has been amazing. We have a lot of special plans to celebrate 10 years, most involve looking forwards not back! We are, of course, hugely appreciative of the full support IMS receives from the industry and artist community of the past decade.”
Tickets are available now, priced €50(£43).
