International Music Summit (IMS) has announced details of its annual Dalt Vila event in Ibiza Old Town
Now in its 11th year, IMS Ibiza is a three-day educational and thought leadership platform for the electronic music industry. Dalt Vila is the finale of the summit and widely regarded as the official opening of the Ibiza summer season.
IMS co-founder Ben Turner said: “IMS Dalt Vila is one of the most beautiful ways to celebrate another summer of electronic music in Ibiza and the end to another IMS summit. It’s reflective every year of the dominant sound and tempo of the island, and right now this continues to be the underground house and techno sound.”
Headlining the 2018 line-up on May 25 is Sven Väth, who returns for his third IMS Dalt Vila appearance, following his recent news that his long-running Cocoon Monday weekly will switch venues to Pacha after 18 years at Amnesia. Also announced is pioneering DJ Jackmaster, New York DJ Danny Tenaglia, Israeli DJ Guy Gerber.
Other sets will come from Paco Osuna, Andrea Oliva, IMS co-founder and industry icon Pete Tong, Korean artist Peggy Gou and Middle East influenced DJ duo Bedouin.
Adding further strength is Dubfire and emerging Ukranian artist Nastia. IMS Dalt Vila will also feature an opening set from BURN Residency 2017 winner Furkan Kurt.
“The line-up reflects artists with some of the best residencies including Sven and Bedouin, but also iconic artists like Danny Tenaglia, and the hottest new names of today including Nastia and Peggy Gou,” added Turner. “Male; female; Spanish; international; young and old – it’s a good reflection of techno today.”
Tickets are available now for €50 (£45).
