Live the High Life for Ibiza's International Music Summit 2017

The International Music Summit 2017

The International Music Summit returns to Ibiza for the 10th year in 2017, celebrating the genre of music that has defined the dance scene for which the White Isle is so moved. Electronic music dominates the agenda between 24th and 26th May, as the biggest names in the industry converge in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ibiza Town’s Dalt Vila and the Hard Rock Hotel by Playa D’en Bossa. Many distinguished guests will be renting luxury Ibiza villas at the end of May to best enjoy both the event and the unique island.

Speeches, Networking and Parties

Aside from the IMS Dalt Vila Festival, which will see a range of back-to-back performances by some of the biggest names on the electronic scene, the three-day International Music Summit 2017 will welcome over 80 speakers from around the world – the most prestigious in the history of the event, each a celebrated name in the international music industry. Among the highlights of the event will be 10 keynote speeches from industry authorities: Bernard Sumner (Artist, New Order); Dixon (Artist); The Black Madonna (Artist); The Martinez Brothers (Artists); Masters at Work (Artists); Patrick Walker (Facebook, Director of Media Partnerships EMEA); Austin Kramer (Spotify, Global Head of Dance/Electronic); The Arnau Family (Founders, Elrow); Nick Sabine & Paul Clement (Founders, Resident Advisor); and Gianfranco Bortolotti (Founder, Media Records). In addition to the masterclasses, there will be a range of informal chats and panels, dealing with relevant subjects in the world of music. Industry professionals stand to benefit from the excellent networking opportunities that the IMS 2017 will provide.

The Best Edition Yet

Ben Turner, the Co-Curator of IMS, commented on the strength of the 2017 edition of the event: “New Order, Dixon, The Black Madonna, Masters At Work, The Martinez Brothers… A true set of visionary artists – past and present. Its hard to believe it’s been a decade since the first IMS. We’ve always tried to focus on a singular room of content to help create a dialogue for change and a shared experience – all too rare in today’s fractured media landscape. This is really shaping up to be our biggest attendance to date and we hope it’s the most informative yet… Even after ten years, it feels like our work is only just starting…”

The IMS Legends Dinner 2017

The annual IMS Legends Dinner will be held this year on 24th May, recognising the achievements of the electronic music pioneer and Founder of Pacha, Ricardo Urgell. From 8pm, the IMS’s opening event will comprise a sumptuous 3-course meal and a fittingly exuberant after-party that will feature music from Masters at Work, The Black Madonna, Agoria and Alex Kennon. Previous winners of the coveted award include Nile Rodgers, Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong and Carl Cox. Guest tickets cost €150 per person.
