The three-day inspirational and educational platform will celebrate its 10th anniversary next 24th till 26th May 2017 at the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza.
International Music Summit (IMS) is a wide spectrum of electronic music industry professionals participate in a series of talks, interactive workshops, intimate networking opportunities, inspiring dinners and club events led by skilled experts, experienced business minds and talented artists.
We wanted to put a professional face to the island of Ibiza, the global dance music destination that defined our genre. We ended up focusing on the world. From Los Angeles to Shanghai, IMS has reached a key landmark in its lifespan and we can’t wait to celebrate this decade by looking forwards, not back. The genre has exploded during our ten years and we’re happy to have grown around the world in parallel. –
Ben Turner, co-founder, IMS.
Founded by electronic music industry’s most respected individuals including Ben Turner, BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong MBE, and Ibiza heavyweights, Danny Whittle, Mark Netto and Simeon Friend, participants and curators alike, they all share a passion for electronic dance music and culture and are invested in shaping its future.
