IMS Ibiza 2019 dates

Creating an environment that supports collaboration, creativity and positive values

“ IMS has been on a journey of self-discovery in recent years and we feel ready to focus our event and its curation around striving for inclusivity in as many areas as possible. This is our third year working with Andreea and the organisation, and it really feels natural and unforced to share ideas and ideology with her team.

It feels like our hearts and minds changed a few years ago but not enough action was being taken and IMS must lead by example. We can’t hide that IMS was created originally by six white males, but we can change everything else around us to promote the best in the industry from across professions.

IMS Ibiza 2019 is more open to collaborating than ever before and I personally hope we can encourage more women to speak, attend, perform and help shape the industry they love. ”

– Ben Turner, IMS co-founder


IMS and share the same key ideology and vision: creating an environment that supports collaboration, creativity and positive values. What are the key objectives of this partnership? To break down gender stereotypes whilst promoting and increasing the profile of women who are making an impact in the industry. The two organisations will work together to strive towards gender parity at IMS Ibiza 2019 and are willing to help the electronic music industry examine inclusivity and encourage its movement to a more balanced sector.

“ We are excited to renew our partnership with IMS this year as a programming co-host. This gives us a greater opportunity to create more visibility for women and other marginalized communities in electronic music and beyond at one of the most forward-thinking music conferences in the business.

Our relationship with Ben Turner and IMS exemplifies the collaborative ethos – to constructively work together to address the gender gap where necessary and propose solutions for the industry to adopt further.

IMS has positioned itself at the forefront of innovation in electronic music and we are thrilled to augment the experience with our programming ideas. ”

– Andreea Magdalina, founder
